Tropical Storm Aletta was the first storm of the Eastern Pacific Season and it formed on May 14 off the coast of Central America. 11AM on May 14th Aletta had winds near 35mph and a central pressure of 1006mb. By May 15th Aletta had strong enough winds to support tropical storm status. The 17th of May found Aletta out in the Eastern Pacific interacting with colder waters and quickly weakened back to Tropical Depression strength. May 19th brought the last day of Aletta as it started to interact...

It also gives people false sense that the storm may be done, when in fact it is only at the half way point. Location B: This region is known as feeder bands that outline the center of the storm. In this region you will see very strong winds and also tornadoes and heavy...
Tropical Cyclones have a life cycle they go through. The first stage is referred to as a wave when the satellite imagery picks up on an area of thunderstorm developing in the ocean in the tropical region. If the thunderstorms hold together and get better organized it will then get upgraded to a tropical depression. During this stage of its life it will have a better organization to its thunderstorms and also the winds will be increasing. The third stage that occurs is the formation of a...
What makes a Nor’easter so special to the world of weather? Is it because of the massive region that is impacted or is it because of the strength of the storm? Both of these statements are true. Nor’easters are most common in the late fall through early spring. They form when conditions are favorable for their development. Most typically what happens is, an area of Low pressure will form in the southern plains and move eastward. As you can see from our April storm the system started...
