redOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Today's Special Storm Report focuses on two major weather systems in the United States. The first is in South Dakota and the second involves Hurricane Sandy. SOUTH DAKOTA - A strong area of low pressure moved just to the southeast of South Dakota on October 24, 2012. This low pressure was the same low pressure responsible for the tornadoes in California that occurred a few days earlier. The storm took a southern route out of California and then...

Atlantic's Tropical Depression 19 Shows Backwards "C" Of Strong Storms
2012-10-24 10:09:53

Infrared imagery from the AIRS instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite revealed that the strongest thunderstorms within the Atlantic Ocean's Tropical Depression 19 seem to form a backwards letter "C" stretching from northeast to southeast around the storm's center. That "C" is a band of thunderstorms around the eastern side of the storm. Infrared satellite imagery taken on Oct. 22 at 12:23 p.m. EDT, from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument showed that the strongest thunderstorms...

Forming Of Eighteenth Atlantic Depression Seen By NASA
2012-10-22 19:05:50

Tropical Depression 18 (TD18) formed over the southwestern Caribbean Sea at 11 a.m. EDT on Oct. 22, and NASA's TRMM satellite saw a "hot towering" thunderstorm near its center of circulation hinting that it could become a tropical storm soon. A tropical storm watch has been issued for Jamaica. When NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite flew over the developing TD18 early on Oct. 22 at 0040 UTC (Oct. 21 at 8:40 p.m. EDT), the satellite measured rainfall rates within...

NASA Captures Last Image Of Rafael As A Hurricane, Now Merged With Front
2012-10-19 08:05:53

Hurricane Rafael is no longer a tropical cyclone. The storm merged with a cold front on Oct. 18, but not before NASA's Terra satellite captured an image of the storm when it was in its last day as a hurricane. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MODIS) instrument aboard NASA's Terra captured a visible image of Hurricane Rafael in the North Atlantic on Oct. 17 at 1440 UTC (10:40 a.m. EDT). Although Rafael was far from land, its northwestern fringe clouds were brushing Nova Scotia,...

Strong Wind Shear Adversely Affects Tropical Storm Maria Seen By NASA
2012-10-19 07:54:46

Tropical Storm Maria is moving away from Japan and strong wind shear is pushing its rainfall east of the storm's center, according to NASA satellite imagery. On Oct. 18 at 0845 UTC (4:45 a.m. EDT), NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite saw that rain associated with Tropical Storm Maria was limited to the east of the storm's center. Rainfall was also light to moderate, falling at a rate between .78 to 1.57 inches/20 to 40 mm per hour. There were no areas of heavy rain...

California Safe From Hurricanes, For The Most Part
2012-10-18 13:36:30

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online California has had its fair share of earthquakes, but could the Golden State ever be hit by a hurricane? One  NASA researcher recently looked into the matter. California has felt the effects of a tropical cyclone before, but typically just in the form of rainfall from the remnants of a storm in the eastern Pacific. There has actually never been a documented case of a hurricane making landfall in California, but it has had some...

Tropical Storm Prapiroon's Rains Mostly South Of Center Indicated By NASA Satellite
2012-10-17 15:19:37

Tropical Storm Prapiroon is still meandering in the western north Pacific Ocean, and NASA's TRMM satellite noticed that dry air and wind shear are adversely affecting rainfall north of the storm's center. NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite flew above Prapiroon when it was a typhoon on Oct. 15, 2012 at 0632 UTC (2:32 a.m. EDT). Prapiroon's sustained wind speeds had dropped to 70 knots (~81 mph) with a large and ragged eye being its dominant feature. TRMM's Microwave...

Hurricane Rafael Battering Bermuda Seen By NASA Satellite
2012-10-17 15:11:25

Hurricane Rafael is a large hurricane and Bermuda has battened down for Rafael's battering today, Oct. 16. NOAA's GOES-14 satellite revealed Rafael's large span that covers several hundred miles and dwarfs Bermuda. NOAA's GOES-14 satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Storm Rafael in the Atlantic on Oct. 16 at 7:45 a.m. EDT. The image shows the extent of Hurricane Rafael, which is over 410 miles in diameter. That's longer than the distance between Boston and Washington, D.C. The...

How Do You Solve A Problem Like (Tropical Storm) Maria
2012-10-17 14:46:11

The song "How do you solve a problem like Maria?" from the famous film "The Sound of Music" comes to mind when looking at NASA satellite imagery of Tropical Storm Maria churning in the western North Pacific Ocean. The answer lies in increased wind shear and cool ocean temperatures — two factors that can weaken the storm, but won't be present over the next day or two. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm Maria on Oct. 16 at 0355 UTC, 12:55 p.m. local time Tokyo/Japan (Oct....
