Tropical Cyclone Garry Continues To Intensify Seen By NASA
2013-01-25 10:54:31

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Cyclone Garry is in a good environment to intensify and satellite imagery from NOAA's GOES-15 satellite helped confirm that the storm has become more organized. NOAA's GOES-15 satellite captured an infrared image of Tropical Storm Garry when it was located about 330 nautical miles (379.8 miles/ 611.2 km) east of Pago Pago, American Samoa. The image, created by the NASA GOES Project at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., was...

Tropical Cyclone Oswald Weakens Over Queensland's Cape York Peninsula Seen By NASA
2013-01-23 09:31:32

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center NASA's Aqua satellite documented the formation of Tropical Storm Oswald in the Gulf of Carpentaria on Jan. 21 and the landfall on Jan. 22 in the southwestern Cape York Peninsula of Queenstown, Australia. Oswald has since become remnant low pressure area over land. Tropical Storm Oswald was hugging the southwestern coast of the Cape York Peninsula, Queensland, Australia when NASA's Aqua satellite first flew overhead on Jan. 21 at 0430 UTC (Jan. 20 at...

Tropical Storm Bopha Intensifies Seen By NASA
2012-11-29 09:04:14

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Tropical Storm Bopha continues to intensify in the western North Pacific Ocean as it heads toward Yap State, triggering more warnings and watches. Infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite captured over two days revealed that the storm had consolidated, intensified and developed a large band of strong thunderstorms south of the center, that resemble a tail. Infrared images of Tropical Storm Bopha were taken by the AIRS instrument on NASA's Aqua...

NASA Study Finds Hurricane Strength Forecasts Could Be Improved
2012-11-28 15:58:25

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory Forecasters could soon be better able to predict how intense tropical cyclones like Hurricane Sandy will be by analyzing relative-humidity levels within their large-scale environments, finds a new NASA-led study. Scientists from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif., UCLA and the University of Hawaii at Manoa analyzed relative humidity data from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA's Aqua spacecraft for nearly 200 North...

Night-time View Of Sandy's Landfall Captured By NASA/NOAA's Suomi NPP
2012-11-01 06:10:48

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center As Hurricane Sandy made a historic landfall on the New Jersey coast during the night of Oct. 29, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on NASA/NOAA's Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite captured this night-time view of the storm. This image provided by University of Wisconsin-Madison is a composite of several satellite passes over North America taken 16 to18 hours before Sandy's landfall. The storm was captured by a...

Life And Death Of Hurricane Sandy Captured By Satellites
2012-11-01 06:03:10

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Hurricane Sandy is giving up the ghost on Halloween over Penn. As the storm weakened to a remnant low pressure area the NASA GOES Project released an animation of NOAA's GOES-13 satellite imagery covering Hurricane Sandy's entire life. The GOES-13 satellite is managed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and NASA's GOES Project at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. creates images and animations from GOES data....

Tropical Storm Rosa Being Born And Powering Up Quickly Seen By NASA
2012-10-31 07:57:14

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center The seventeenth tropical depression of the eastern Pacific Ocean hurricane season formed early on October 30 and quickly strengthened into Tropical Storm Rosa. Infrared data from NASA's Aqua satellite revealed strong convection in the storm's center, hinting at that intensification. When NASA's Aqua satellite flew over Tropical Depression 17E at 5:41 a.m. EDT (0951 UTC) on Tuesday, October 30, the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument took an...

redOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Big Story Weather from October 26-28: This past weekend severe weather has been limited. The only thing that we have seen is the very cold air dropping into the Southern Plains as temps in this region fell to just below freezing creating a lot of end of season growing conditions. The second big thing has been the impact of Sandy along the East Coast where places have been dealing with high storm surge and also strong winds and seas that have been...

Tropical Storm Murjan Making Landfall On The Horn Of Africa Seen By NASA
2012-10-26 08:15:18

NASA's Aqua satellite watched from space as Somalia in the Horn of Africa experienced a landfalling tropical cyclone on Oct. 25. On Oct. 25, NASA's Aqua satellite saw Tropical Storm Murjan begin to make landfall in eastern Somalia, just south of Cape Guardafui. Cape Guardafui is located in the northeastern Bari province and forms the geographical point of the Horn of Africa. On Oct. 25, 2012 at 0720 UTC (3:20 a.m. EDT) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument...

redOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Big Story Weather from October 25: Strong winds and snow made their way through the Great Lakes region yesterday with reports of wind damage coming in from WI and parts of MI. There was also a large area of frost and freeze advisories and warnings for the Southern Plains as our cold air mass settled into the region overnight dropping temps down into the lower 30´s for many regions. A large area of fog set up along the Gulf Coast do to the...
