NASA infrared satellite image shows strong thunderstorms NASA satellites are keeping an eye on the changing track of Tropical Storm Conson and the conditions within the storm as it changes in strength on its track through the South China Sea. NASA's Infrared imagery revealed some strong convection in the storm as it takes a more westerly route toward another landfall. Just before making landfall in the northern Philippines, Tropical Storm Conson was forecast to track more to the northwest for...

NASA satellite imagery confirmed that Tropical Storm Conson is departing the Philippines and is almost entirely in the South China Sea. At 1500 UTC (10 a.m. EDT/10 p.m. local Asia/Manila time) on July 14, Tropical Storm Conson was located about 225 nautical miles west-northwest of Manila, the Philippines. That places Conson's center near 16.3 North and 116.9 East. Conson had maximum sustained winds near 50 knots (57 mph) and was moving west-northwest near 12 knots (14 mph). Conson is...

Imagine seeing a typhoon from space, and seeing it in three dimensions. That's what the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite can do with any typhoon, and just did with Typhoon Conson. TRMM's 3-D look at tropical cyclones provide scientists with information on the height of towering thunderstorms and the rate of rainfall in them, and Conson has high thunderstorms and heavy rainfall. The TRMM satellite got a good view of tropical storm Conson (known as "Basyang" in the...

Tropical Storm Conson became a typhoon overnight Monday with maximum sustained winds near 75 mph, and NASA's Aqua satellite captured an image of the storm as it was making landfall in Luzon, the Philippines. Conson is already moving into the South China Sea and headed for a landfall in south China. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument aboard NASA's Aqua satellite captured a visible image of Typhoon Conson at 04:55 UTC (12:55 a.m. EDT/12:55 p.m. local...

Tropical Storm Conson formed in the northwestern Pacific Ocean over the weekend, and is now poised to bring rainfall and gusty winds to the northern Philippines. NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Conson on July 12 at 12:14 p.m. (local Asia/Manila time) and showed a well-developed circulation. Conson, known locally in the Philippines as "Tropical Storm Basyang," was about 400 nautical miles east of Manila, Philippines, near 14.4 North and 127.1 East at 1500 UTC (11 a.m. EDT). Conson has...
