Gabrielle's Remnants And New Tropical Storm Humberto Investigated By NASA
2013-09-09 12:53:05

NASA Tropical Depression Nine formed yesterday, Sept. 8 in the far eastern Atlantic, and NASA's Aqua satellite saw it strengthen into Tropical Storm Humberto today, Sept. 9 at 5 a.m. EDT. As that storm strengthened, the remnants of the once-tropical-storm Gabrielle continued to struggle near the Bahamas as NASA's HS3 mission investigated. Tropical Storm Humberto is affecting the Cape Verde Islands, so there's a tropical storm warning in up for the southern islands of Maio, Santiago,...

NASA Sees Tropical Storm Erin Forming

NASA Infrared data from NASA's Aqua satellite showed strong thunderstorms had developed in the eastern Atlantic low pressure system that grew into Tropical Storm Erin. NASA's TRMM satellite noticed a "hot tower" in the storm's center, and research has shown tropical cyclones that have them will intensify as this storm did. The low pressure area called System 93L in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean consolidated and organized during the overnight hours of Aug. 14 and 15 and became Tropical...

  While parts of the East Coast and New England are still recovering from Hurricane Irene, a new storm is brewing in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Katia. The TRMM satellite looked "under the hood" of the storm and saw heavy rainfall rates and towering clouds providing a clue that she was going to strengthen and may become a hurricane later today. Katia began as an area of low pressure that had moved away from the coast of Africa south of the Cape Verde Islands in the central eastern...

Tropical Depression Lisa has had a struggle, and it appears that she's in for more of the same. Infrared satellite imagery from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument on NASA's Aqua satellite shows that the convection (rapidly rising air that forms thunderstorms that make up a tropical cyclone) is increasing in Lisa. The convection is becoming a little better organized and stronger which is will make for some heavy rainfall over the northwestern Cape Verde Islands. It's also an...

Tropical Depression 12 was born in the far eastern Atlantic Ocean yesterday, Sept. 12 and two NASA satellites saw factors that indicated she would later strengthen into Tropical Storm Julia. Infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite revealed strong convection in its center that powered the storm into tropical storm status by 11 p.m. EDT. NASA's TRMM satellite indicated very heavy rainfall from that strong area of convection.The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument that flies on...

By Jim Loney MIAMI (Reuters) - The fourth tropical depression of the Atlantic hurricane season brushed the Cape Verde Islands on Tuesday and forecasters said it would intensify slowly as it moved over open water in the coming days and could eventually threaten Bermuda. The storm system, which was expected to become Tropical Storm Debby some time on Wednesday, sent squalls over the southernmost Cape Verde Islands but the government dropped storm warnings after the system moved by....

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Tropical Depression Four spread its outer rain bands over the southernmost Cape Verde Islands Tuesday as it moved northwest across the Atlantic Ocean, the National Hurricane Center said. The NHC forecast the storm could strengthen into a tropical depression sometime over the next 24 hours and into a hurricane over the next four days. At 5 a.m. EDT (0900 GMT), the center of the depression was about 140 miles south of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands. The...
