Latest Pacific hurricane season Stories
The fourth Atlantic tropical depression became Tropical Storm Colin early in the morning today, August 3 and NASA and other satellites are keeping tabs on it.
Yesterday, System 96E looked good for development and by 5 pm EDT that low pressure area had organized more to become Tropical Depression 6-E in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
A trough is an elongated area of low pressure and that's what the remnants of the once major hurricane known as Darby are becoming today.
The Eastern Pacific twins, Darby and Celia were once both major hurricanes and today are just barely hanging on to tropical storm status.
There are now two major hurricanes in the Eastern Pacific Ocean and they appear to be chasing each other in imagery from the GOES-13 satellite.
Infrared imagery provides forecasters with a look at the temperature of cloud tops in tropical cyclones, sea surface and land surface temperatures and more.
Tropically speaking Celia is in the Major Leagues.
Hurricane Celia dropped to a Category One hurricane during the late afternoon hours on June 22, and today, June 23 by 11 am EDT, it had powered back up to a Category Two hurricane in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.
The fifth tropical depression of the Eastern Pacific Ocean hurricane season developed and quickly strengthened into Tropical Storm Darby during the early morning hours of June 23.
Tropical cyclones Blas and Celia are both spinning in the Eastern Pacific Ocean, and two NASA satellites captured them in visible and infrared imagery.
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...
Location A: This is known as the Eye or the center of the Hurricane/Typhoon/Cyclone. This region is highlighted by the potential for calm winds and also the fact that it’s possible to see the sun or moon during the night. 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...
