Tropical Storm Blas is on a west-northwesterly track in the open waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean, and a NASA satellite flying overhead noticed some strong areas of convection in the storm. NASA's Aqua satellite flew over Tropical Storm Blas on June 17 at 20:41 UTC (4:41 p.m. EDT) and captured an infrared image of the storm from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument. The AIRS image showed two areas of very high, frigid clouds (as cold as or colder than -63 Fahrenheit) in the...

NASA infrared satellite imagery captured two tropical depressions in the Eastern Pacific Ocean yesterday (June 17), as one struggles to survive and the other powered up into Tropical Storm Blas. On June 17 at 08:11 UTC (4:11 a.m. EDT/1:11 PDT) the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured an infrared image of Tropical Depression 2-E (TD2-E) hugging the coast of western Mexico and the western half of Tropical Storm Blas which is farther...

The possibility that System 92L in the Atlantic Ocean will bloom into the Atlantic's first tropical storm is now minimal because of strong westerly winds. The GOES-13 satellite captured a visible image of System 92L on June 16 at 11:45 UTC (7:45 a.m. EDT) and it appeared as a small rounded area of cloudiness in the Atlantic. GOES-13 was launched by NASA and is now operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). NASA's GOES Project at the Goddard Space Flight Center in...

The second tropical depression of the Eastern Pacific Ocean hurricane season formed close to the western Mexican coast yesterday morning (June 16), and the third tropical depression may develop in the next day or two. NASA satellite imagery captured the two systems in one image, right after Tropical Depression 2-E formed. The GOES-11 satellite captured a visible image of Tropical Depression 2-E and System 92E on June 16 at 12:00 UTC (8:00 a.m. EDT). GOES-11 was launched by NASA and is now...

An area of low pressure referred to by meteorologists as "System 92L" in the Atlantic Ocean seems ripe for development and NASA infrared satellite imagery revealed areas in the low that have strong convection. Convection refers primarily to atmospheric motions in the vertical direction, or rising warm air that condenses and forms clouds. NASA's Aqua satellite flew over the low pressure area on June 14 at 04:29 UTC (12:29 a.m. EDT). The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument detects...

Tropical Storm Agatha was the first tropical storm of the Eastern Pacific hurricane season, and took an inland route, drenching El Salvador and Guatemala this past weekend. By Tuesday, June 1, Agatha's remnants had moved into the northwestern Caribbean Sea east of the Yucatan peninsula. Environmental conditions in the area, however, likely won't permit Agatha to reform into a tropical cyclone. Over the weekend, by Sunday, May 30, Tropical Storm Agatha had already moved inland and its heavy...

The weekend wasn't very helpful to Edzani, once a powerful Cyclone, now weakened to a tropical storm in the Southern Indian Ocean. That's because of cooler waters and increased wind shear. On Monday, January 11 at 10 a.m. ET (1500 UTC) Edzani's maximum sustained winds were near 52 mph (45 knots). Edzani's center was about 970 nautical miles east-southeast of La Reunion island, near 26.0 South and 72.3 East. Edzani was moving south-southeast near 13 mph, but the storm is expected to turn to...

Based on computer forecast models, the residents of southern and central Baja California should prepare over the weekend for now Tropical Storm Rick. Rick formed late yesterday, October 15, and is expected to become a major hurricane over the weekend. NASA satellite imagery captured the storm this morning as a strong tropical storm off the western Mexican coast. NASA infrared satellite imagery suggests an eyewall forming indicating the storm is powering up. Tropical Depression 20-E formed...

Tropical Depression Patricia in the Eastern Pacific Ocean has now degenerated into a remnant low pressure area over the southernmost tip of Baja California. The circulation associated with the Patricia's clouds and showers had maximum sustained winds near 30 mph at the time of the National Hurricane Center's last advisory on Wednesday, October 14 at 5 a.m. EDT. At that time, Patricia's center was located just 15 miles east-southeast of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California, Mexico. That's near 22.8...

The nineteenth tropical cyclone of the Eastern Pacific formed over this past weekend, and strengthened into Tropical Storm Patricia. The GOES-11 satellite captured Patricia from her "birth" several hundred miles south of Baja California, to her track there today, Tuesday, October 13. The National Hurricane Center has posted a tropical storm warning for the southern portion of the Baja California peninsula from Buenavista to Agua Blanca, including Cabo San Lucas. A tropical storm warning means...

Post Storm Analysis Of Tropical Storm Aletta
2012-07-23 11:08:03

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...

The Nor’easter of April 2012
2012-05-07 14:43:40

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...
