Super-typhoon Lekima Ready To Make The Curve
2013-10-24 14:38:39

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Super-typhoon Lekima is poised to "make the curve" in the northwestern Pacific Ocean today. The storm's track is expected to shift from a northwesterly direction, and curve to northeasterly direction because it has started encountering mid-latitude westerly winds and a trough. NASA's Terra satellite captured an image of Lekima just before it began its directional shift. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's...

Super-typhoon Lekima Eyed By NASA In The Northwestern Pacific
2013-10-23 13:58:52

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center NASA's Terra satellite flew over Lekima after it became a super-typhoon in the northwestern Pacific Ocean and captured visible and infrared data on the storm. Early on Oct. 23 at 00:25 UTC/Oct. 22 at 8:25 p.m. EDT, the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer instrument that flies aboard NASA's Terra satellite was busy capturing data on Lekima. The MODIS image clearly showed Lekima's 20 nautical mile/23 mile/37 km-wide-eye with bands of...

NASA Sees Typhoon Lekima's Rapid Intensification
2013-10-22 15:23:06

NASA Tropical Storm Lekima intensified quickly early on Oct. 22 while traveling over the open waters of the Northwestern Pacific Ocean. The day before the rapid intensification, NASA's TRMM satellite passed overhead and analyzed the rainfall rates in the storm, spotting heavy rainfall in two quadrants. NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission satellite known as TRMM, is managed by NASA and the Japan Space Agency. TRMM flew over Lekima on Oct. 21 at 07:18 UTC/3:18 a.m. EDT and found...

Tropical Storm Lekima Born In Northwestern Pacific Ocean
2013-10-22 10:44:06

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center The twenty-eighth tropical depression of the Northwestern Pacific Ocean tropical cyclone season developed and strengthened into Tropical Storm Lekima. On Oct. 21 at 1500 UTC/11 a.m. EDT, Tropical Storm Lekima had maximum sustained winds near 55 knots/63.2 mph/101.9 kph. It was centered near 13.6 north and 159.4 east, about 815 nautical miles/ 937.9 miles/1,509 km east of Saipan. Lekima was moving to the north-northwest at 10 knots/11.5 mph/18.5 kph. A...
