redOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Big Story Weather from September 26: Another severe weather day from the Texas Panhandle all the way northeastward into the Ohio River Valley and parts of the Mid-Atlantic. These areas dealt with strong winds, damaging hail and heavy flooding rains. Also the cool weather was in place over the Northern Plains yesterday morning. Weather Outlook for September 27: Stationary boundary and the associated low will again create a severe weather setup from...

Infrared Data For Super Typhoon Jelawat And Tropical Storm Ewiniar Compared By NASA
2012-09-26 08:05:59

NASA's Aqua satellite has been obtaining infrared, visible and other data everytime it passes over Typhoon Jelawat and Tropical Storm Ewiniar in the western North Pacific, and a combination of two images from Aqua's AIRS satellite puts the storms in perspective. A combined image created from infrared data obtained by the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument that flies on NASA's Aqua satellite provides a comparison of the two monster storms in the western North Pacific Ocean basin...

redOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Big Story Weather from September 25: A big day in the severe weather arena as our frontal boundary gained a lot more strength than I thought it would and was responsible for tornadoes in and around Indiana. There were multiple reports of large hail from Indiana westward through Missouri and southward back into the Southern Plains from Kansas to Texas. We also saw a lot of wind damage reports in the same area yesterday. The rainfall rates were heavy...

NASA's Hurricane Mission A Reality Due To Cutting-Edge Technology
2012-09-26 08:00:00

Cutting-edge NASA technology has made this year's NASA Hurricane mission a reality. NASA and other scientists are currently flying a suite of state-of-the-art, autonomously operated instruments that are gathering difficult-to-obtain measurements of wind speeds, precipitation, and cloud structures in and around tropical storms. "Making these measurements possible is the platform on which the instruments are flying," said Paul Newman, the deputy principal investigator of NASA's Hurricane and...

'Power-Trigger' Around Hurricane Miriam's Center Seen By NASA's Satellite
2012-09-25 08:27:05

NASA's Aqua satellite revealed a large area of powerful thunderstorms around the center of Tropical Storm Miriam on Sept. 23 as it tracked through the Eastern Pacific Ocean. That power was the trigger that helped Miriam rapidly intensify into a major hurricane on Sept. 24. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over the eastern Pacific Ocean on Sept. 23 and the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument captured an infrared image of Tropical Storm Miriam's cloud top temperatures. Tropical Storm...

redOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Big Story Weather from September 24: Another cold evening occurred this time from the Midwest eastward into the Northeast as the area of high pressure continued to make its way eastward.  There was no major severe weather from yesterday as most of the nation was dry or cold. The only place that did see rain showers was South Florida along the stationary boundary. Weather Outlook for September 25: High pressure will shift off the East...

Due To Earlier Monsoon Onset Tropical Cyclones In The Arabian Sea Have Intensified
2012-09-24 08:20:47

The tropical cyclones in the Arabian Sea during the pre-monsoon season (May — June) have intensified since 1997 compared to 1979 - 1997. This has been attributed to decreased vertical wind shear due to the dimming effects of increased anthropogenic black carbon and sulfate emissions in the region. The decrease in vertical wind shear, however, is not the result of these emissions, but due to a 15-day on average earlier occurrence of tropical cyclones, according to a study spearheaded by...

redOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Big Story Weather from September 21-23: The cold air of old man winter arrived in places like North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa. Many of these places enjoyed the cold record setting air over the weekend as temps dropped into the 20´s. Also the Northern part of Minnesota got a tease of snow with upwards to 1 inch. The west dealt with the heat as many places in California had temps soar into the 90´s and even 100´s. On...

Tropical Storm Nadine And 2 Developing Lows Spotted By NASA
2012-09-21 14:43:06

NOAA's GOES satellite captured Tropical Storm Nadine in the eastern Atlantic, another low pressure area forming in the central Atlantic, and a developing low in the eastern Pacific. NASA's TRMM satellite noticed that the storms around Nadine's center were waning. On Sept. 21 at 7:45 a.m. EDT, NOAA's GOES-13 satellite captured an image of Tropical Storm Nadine in the eastern Atlantic, and a developing low in the central Atlantic. Nadine is south of the frontal boundary draped across the...

Nadine Displays More Tropical Characteristics Seen By NASA Satellites And Global Hawk
2012-09-21 10:21:40

Scientists and forecasters have been analyzing Tropical Storm Nadine using various NASA satellites as NASA's Global Hawk flew over the storm gathering information. Both the Global Hawk and NASA's TRMM satellite noticed that Nadine has continued to display tropical characteristics, indicating that it has not transitioned to an extra-tropical storm. Forecasters noted that Nadine could have started transitioning into an extra-tropical storm, because there was little significant rainfall near...

El Nino Update July 5, 2012
2012-07-05 11:03:00

Say it’s not so, but we could be very well on the verge of entering into an EL-Nino cycle soon. How soon? The latest forecast issued by the Climate Prediction Center has upped the chances of seeing EL-Nino this year now at 61% with the favorable time period pointing towards the 3rd quarter (July-September).  What does this mean to you? Well it all depends on where you’re living as EL-Nino has a wide array of impacts that are different everywhere around the globe. Here are a few...

Coastal Upwelling- this is defined as the moving of water from the deeper oceans upwards to the surface of the ocean very commonly found along our cold ocean currents, which are found along the West Coast of the United States and off the Peru coast. Coastal Sinking- this is defined as the warm waters moving in from the east and hitting the coastline and slowly filtering down towards the deeper ocean waters very slowly. This feature is common in our warm ocean currents such as the United...

Feature on the Surface Map

Tropical Storm Debbie on a surface chart. It is noted that just off the coast of Northern Florida a 999 surface pressure is found indicating to a meteorologist that an area of Lower pressure is arriving. In this case it’s Tropical Storm Debbie. The red lines indicate lines of equal pressure. Meteorologists label them in 4mb increments. So looking at the map it’s noted that there is a 08/04/00/96 line present in the photo highlighted with red. Another feature is that the more of these...

Difference Between Onshore And Offshore Flow
2012-07-16 11:34:51

Onshore flow describes the movement of any weather feature moving towards the shore. The most common weather features that are affiliated with onshore flow are Hurricanes and the daily sea breeze. What happens with a hurricane is the Northeast side of the storm will produce winds out of the Southeast to South which will force the ocean water (Storm Surge) towards the coast along with all the extensive precipitation shields. Another feature is known as the Sea breeze. The sea breeze happens...
