Dry Air Caused Tropical Storm Jerry's Demise
2013-10-18 14:31:36

NASA Dry air wrapping around Tropical Storm Jerry wiped out the storm's moisture and prevented thunderstorm development to keep the storm going, "wrapping up" the storm and sending it into weather history. At 11 a.m. EDT on Oct 2 Tropical Storm Jerry's maximum sustained winds were near 40 mph/65 kph. It was centered near latitude 28.2 north and longitude 43.9 west.  Jerry was nearly stationary but was expected to move to the north-northeast and turn east-northeast. Satellite data...

Hurricane Sandy's Rainfall Added Up From Space By NASA
2012-11-02 07:02:47

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission, or TRMM, satellite acts as a rain gauge in space as it orbits the Earth's tropics. As TRMM flew over Hurricane Sandy since its birth on Oct. 21 it was gathering data that has now been mapped to show how much rain the storm dropped along the U.S. eastern seaboard. Much of the recent deadly flooding along the northeastern United States coastlines was caused by super storm Sandy's storm swell. Strong winds from...

Tropical Storm Rosa's Rains Southeast Of Center Seen By NASA
2012-11-02 06:55:51

NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center Wind shear is pushing the bulk of Tropical Storm Rosa southeast of the storm's center, and that's evident on infrared imagery from NASA's Aqua satellite. Meanwhile System 99E, that was trailing behind Rosa on Oct. 31, has now "given up the ghost" as a result of that same wind shear. When NASA's Aqua satellite flew over Tropical Storm Rosa at 5:41 a.m. EDT (0951 UTC) on Nov. 1, 2012 the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument took an infrared...

redOrbit Meteorologist Joshua Kelly Big Story Weather from October 26-28: This past weekend severe weather has been limited. The only thing that we have seen is the very cold air dropping into the Southern Plains as temps in this region fell to just below freezing creating a lot of end of season growing conditions. The second big thing has been the impact of Sandy along the East Coast where places have been dealing with high storm surge and also strong winds and seas that have been...

Tropical Depression Nine strengthened yesterday into Tropical Storm Gaston, but today it ran into dry and stable air and weakened back into a depression again. When NASA's Aqua satellite flew over Gaston early this morning, Sept. 2 at 0423 UTC (12:23 a.m. EDT), the infrared image taken from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument showed that Tropical Depression Gaston seemed to have a compact circulation with some high, cold thunderstorm cloud tops around its center of circulation....

GOES-13 and NASA's Aqua satellite image the storm 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. A GOES-13 satellite visible image at 1145 UTC (7:45 a.m. EDT) on August 3, showed Tropical Storm Colin as a compact area of clouds in the central Atlantic Ocean. NASA infrared imagery from the Aqua satellite has watched Colin's convection increase over the last day, indicating the...

Tropical Storm Ike intensified into a hurricane on Wednesday while Tropical Hanna threatened to do the same. Hanna's heavy rainfall has already put parts of Haiti underwater, stranding residents. President Rene Preval warned of an "extraordinary catastrophe" equaling or surpassing a storm that killed more than 3,000 people four years ago. Forecasters predict Hanna will move across the northern Bahamas, and strengthen into a hurricane on Thursday before hitting the U.S. near the North Carolina...
