NASA’s Aqua satellite data showed wind shear was pushing Tropical Depression Lane’s strongest storms east of its center. For updated forecasts from the CPHC, visit: http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc. At that time the center of Jebi was located near latitude 38.9 degrees north and longitude 137.7 degrees east. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 130 miles (215 km) from the center. Lane became a tropical storm later that day. NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over Jebi on Aug. 29 at 11:53 p.m. EDT (Aug. 30 at 0353 UTC), the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument analyzed the storm in infrared and near visible light. The 2018 North Atlantic hurricane season had 15 named storms, 8 hurricanes, and two major hurricanes. It takes approximately seven minutes for all the cameras to observe the same location, and the motion of the clouds during that time is used to compute the wind speed at the cloudtops. At 6 a.m. EDT (2 a.m. HST/1200 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Lane was located near latitude 19.5 degrees north and longitude 158.4 degrees west. Lane is moving toward the north-northwest near 3 mph (6 kph), and this general motion is expected to continue through this morning. The List of Florida hurricanes encompasses approximately 500 tropical or subtropical cyclones that affected the state of Florida.More storms hit Florida than any other U.S. state, and since 1851 only eighteen hurricane seasons passed without a known storm impacting the state. A turn toward the west-northwest with a decrease in forward speed is expected by tonight, followed by a turn toward the northwest and north through Friday night. Sep. 01, 2020 – NASA’s IMERG Analyzed Heavy Rains from Hurricanes Laura and Marco The northern Gulf Coast, specifically Louisiana, saw two tropical cyclones make landfall in the same week just days apart. Enhanced infrared satellite image showed deepening convection and colder cloud tops encircling the eye. GPM’s radar measured rain falling at over 190 mm (7.5 inches) per hour in one powerful storm. The higher the cloud tops, the colder and the stronger they are. The depression is moving toward the west near 7 mph (11 kph). TD15E became better organized with increased banding later in the day and was upgraded by the National Hurricane Center (NHC) to tropical storm Miriam. On Aug. 30 at 11 a.m. EDT (5 a.m. HST/1500 UTC) NOAA’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center or CPHC noted the center of Hurricane Miriam was located near latitude 15.3 degrees north and longitude 141.6 degrees west. Credit: NASA/JAXA, Hal Pierce. Localized storm total amounts well in excess of 40 inches have already been observed along the windward side of the Big Island.”. NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over Norman on Aug. 30 at 5:29 a.m. EDT (0929 UTC). At 11 p.m. EDT on Aug. 28, Tropical Depression 16E strengthened into a tropical storm and was renamed Norman. For updated forecasts, visit: http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc. August 9, 2018, 11:17 AM EDT 2:37. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km) from the center. There was one preliminary report of more than 52 inches of rain. Jebi contributed much of the rainfall over Shikoku and most of the rainfall over the south central coastal regions of Honshu where it made landfall before adding to the rainfall amounts across central Honshu. Super Typhoon Jebi began as an area of low pressure that formed in the vicinity of Enewetak Atoll in the far western Marshall Islands. On Aug. 31 at 7:15 a.m. EDT (1150 UTC) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite found the coldest temperatures of the strongest thunderstorms around Jebi’s eye and west of the center. Some short-term weakening is forecast, and Lane is expected to become a post-tropical remnant low by Tuesday. Norman is a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. By Rob Gutro Some strengthening is possible during the next day or two, but Miriam is expected to begin weakening by Friday. This general motion is expected to continue through tonight. The storm’s intensity can fluctuate over this period, initially weakening as the inner eye wall fades before again strengthening as the outer eye wall contracts. NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over Hurricane Norman in the Central Pacific Ocean and found that the storm continued to maintain its structure. Little change in strength is forecast during the next 48 hours, with Norman forecast to remain a hurricane through Wednesday night. A Hurricane Watch is in effect for Kauai County, including the islands of Kauai and Niiha. Hurricane Lane was a powerful tropical cyclone that brought torrential rainfall and strong winds to Hawaii during late August 2018. On Aug. 24, NOAA’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center or CPHC noted that catastrophic flooding occurring on the big island of Hawaii. On Aug. 24 at 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC) the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued the final bulletin on Extratropical Storm Cimaron. At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC) on Aug. 24, the center of Tropical Storm Soulik was located near 41.0 degrees north latitude and 133.0 degrees east longitude. That’s about 1,480 miles (2,380 km) east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii. Infrared data provided cloud top temperatures. Storms with cloud top temperatures that cold have the capability to produce heavy rainfall. NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP analyzed Hurricane Norman in the Central Pacific Ocean as it was rapidly intensifying into a major hurricane. The GPM core observatory satellite passed above on August 28, 2018 at 2:16 p.m. EDT (1816 UTC) when Jebi was still a tropical storm. A few of these powerful storms were found by the satellite to reach heights above 13.4 km (8.3 miles). A turn toward the northwest and north-northwest is expected Thursday, Aug. 30 and Friday, Aug. 31. More information about MISR is available at these sites:  https://www-misr.jpl.nasa.gov/, https://eosweb.larc.nasa.gov/project/misr/misr_table, More information about AIRS is at: https://airs.jpl.nasa.gov/, Esprit Smith AIRS saw coldest cloud top temperatures being pushed slightly east of center by light vertical wind shear. This should become Kristy as it tracks west even if it's taking its sweet time now. NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over Miriam on Aug.30 at 7:05 a.m. EDT (1105 UTC) the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument analyzed the storm in infrared light which provides temperature information. The higher the cloud tops, the colder and the stronger they are. On Aug. 28, NOAA’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center or CPHC noted that there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect. On Aug. 23 at 4:15 a.m. EDT (0815 UTC) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA’s Terra satellite analyzed cloud top temperatures in infrared light. That liquid becomes clouds and thunderstorms that make up a tropical cyclone. August is traditionally the start of the "slow season", hurricane season one of the reasons. GPM found heavy rainfall occurring in a band of thunderstorms wrapping into the low-level center from the western quadrant where rain was falling at a rate of over 10 inches (263.3 mm/hour). At least one fatality was blamed on Hurricane Lane. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument analyzed the storm in infrared light which provides temperature information. Cloud top temperatures that cold indicate strong storms that have the capability to create heavy rain. Hurricane Lane’s cloud top temperatures were colder than that, meaning that the storm has a potential to drop even heavier rainfall. Lane crossed into the Central Pacific basin on the 19th and reached its peak intensity on the 22nd as a Category 5 storm with maximum sustained winds of 160 mph. After initially moving northwest, Jebi took a more westward track and continued to steadily intensify as it approached the Northern Mariana Islands, becoming a typhoon on the 29th, a Category 3 typhoon on the 30th, and finally a super typhoon on the 31st of August (local time) just after it passed between the islands of Pagan and Alamagan in the Northern Marianas. Just so you know, hurricanes hit Orlando in 2017, 2004, and 1960. As is often the case, the wind shear associated with the change in direction helped to weaken Jebi as it approached the southern part of Japan. NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Maximum sustained winds are near 110 mph (175 kph) with higher gusts. Water vapor analysis of tropical cyclones tells forecasters how much potential a storm has to develop. Lane is forecast to become a remnant low pressure area later in the day. NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. Some additional strengthening is forecast during the next 12 to 24 hours. AIRS saw coldest cloud top temperatures around the center and in a large band of thunderstorms extending east and south of the center. A Hurricane Watch is in effect for Kauai County…including the islands of Kauai and Niihau. Jebi then crossed the southern coast of the main island of Honshu near Kobe, bringing heavy rains and high winds to the region. The Aqua satellite image taken from the MODIS instrument showed the storm was being tilted from strong vertical wind shear. That happens when a new eyewall or ring of thunderstorms within the outer rain bands forms further out from the storm’s center, outside of the original eye wall. On the latest forecast track, the center of Lane will move dangerously close to portions of the central Hawaiian Islands later today, Aug. 24 and tonight. That’s about 630 miles (1,015 km) west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico. By Harold F. Pierce / Rob Gutro Maximum sustained winds have increased to 45 mph. NASA’s Aqua satellite looked at Cimaron in infrared light and saw cloud tops were warming as the elongated storm weakened. 818-354-4269 NASA’s Aqua satellite provided valuable infrared temperature data on Category 4 Hurricane Norman that showed its strongest storms were southeast of center. At 11 a.m.  EDT (5 a.m. HST/1500 UTC) maximum sustained winds have increased to near 115 mph (100 knots/185 kph) with higher gusts, and Norman is now a category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. On Aug. 28, wind shear was still affecting the storm. August 2018: Hurricane Hector passed about 200 miles (320 km) south of the Island of Hawaiʻi as a Category 3 hurricane, generating 20 foot high surf along the southern side of the island. That’s 290 miles (470 km) northeast of Hilo, Hawaii. Lane may strengthen as an extratropical low as it passes over portions of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands from Tuesday night through Thursday, Aug. 30. On Aug. 29 at 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), Jebi’s maximum sustained winds were near 80 mph (70 knots/129.6 kph). Lane is moving toward the north near 5 mph (7 kph), and this general motion is expected to continue through tonight. Tropical Depression 25W strengthened into a tropical storm on Aug. 28 and was renamed Jebi. NASA’s Aqua satellite passed Tropical Storm Miriam on Aug. 27 at 6:35 a.m. EDT (1035 UTC). On Aug. 29, microwave data showed the low-level center still slightly displaced from the deep convection due to about 11.5 mph (10 knots/18.5 kph) of northwesterly wind shear. In both of those areas, cloud top temperatures were as cold as minus 63 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 53 degrees Celsius). Aqua took a look at the storm in infrared light that provided temperature data to reveal the location of the most powerful thunderstorms that make up the tropical cyclone. Additional weakening is forecast through Sunday night. These agencies include the Tropical Storm Risk (TSR) Consortium of University College London, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Colorado State University(CSU). When NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over tropical cyclone Lane on Aug. 27 it had just regained tropical storm status and showed powerful thunderstorms around east of its center of circulation. That powerful band of thunderstorms showed coldest cloud tops had temperatures near minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius). Isolated tornados are possible through this morning across parts of the Big Island, Maui County and Oahu. At 5 a.m. EDT (2 a.m. PDT/0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Miriam was located near latitude 14.0 degrees north and longitude 133.5 degrees west. Some additional intensification is expected today, followed by fairly rapid weakening Friday through Saturday night, Sept. 1. Lane has ceased to be a tropical cyclone and will dissipate soon. On Aug. 29, microwave data showed the low-level center still slightly displaced from the deep convection due to about … That’s about 520 miles (835 km) west-southwest of Honolulu, Hawaii. Weakening is expected over the next couple of days. NOAA’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center or CPHC noted that interests in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands should continue to monitor the progress of Lane. Lane is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 10 to 20 inches, with localized amounts in excess of 30 inches over the Hawaiian Islands.”. At 11 a.m. EDT (5 a.m. HST/1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Norman was located near latitude 19.9 degrees north and longitude 143.4 degrees west. Jebi was moving toward the west near 14 mph (12 knots/22kph). In … Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 kph) with higher gusts. NASA’s Aqua satellite provided an infrared look at Norman as it continued weakening and moving northwest of the Hawaiian Islands. On Aug. 29 at 4:45 a.m. EDT (0845 UTC) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite found the coldest temperatures of the strongest thunderstorms in Tropical Storm Norman were north and south of the center and were as cold as or colder than minus 80 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 62.2 Celsius). We are now in the prime time period for tropical storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic basin, yet all is quiet. Rainfall is expected to be the biggest threat from Lane. The eye was covered by clouds which made the center difficult to locate. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) noted today, Aug. 29 that Norman is forecast to rapidly intensify and become a hurricane later today. When Terra passed over Super Typhoon Jebi it appeared to be undergoing eyewall replacement. Then, that outer ring of thunderstorms chokes off the original eye wall, starving it of moisture and momentum. Cimaron was moving to the north-northeast and had maximum sustained winds near 45 knots (52 mph/83 kph). On Aug. 31 at 6:10 a.m. EDT (1010 UTC) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite found the coldest temperatures of the strongest thunderstorms in Hurricane Norman were southeast of the center and were as cold as or colder than minus 80 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 62.2 Celsius). Jebi is forecast to pass to the south and west of Iwo To island on the way to the big island of Japan. Coldest cloud tops were near minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius). Weakening is forecast through Saturday. The estimated minimum central pressure is 999 millibars. The storm had crossed central Japan and was emerging into the Sea of Japan. Credit: NASA/JAXA, Hal Pierce. The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season was a Slightly Below Average to near normal hurricane season, primarily caused by Moderate El-Nino Conditions, this season spawned 12 Depressions, 10 Named Storms, 5 hurricanes and 1 Major.. Jebi is in the process of becoming extra-tropical over the Sea of Japan as its wind field expands. Norman is moving toward the northwest near 8 mph (13 km/h) and this motion is expected to continue through Saturday, remaining east of the main Hawaiian Islands. Overnight, Norman remained generally steady but had some recent development of new deep convection very close to the estimated low-level circulation center. The first three weeks of August have broken records for … It is not close enough to the islands to generate any watches or warnings, however, a large swell generated by Norman peaked across the main Hawaiian Islands overnight on Sept. 6, causing large and potentially dangerous surf along east facing shores. NASA’s Terra satellite passed over Jebi on Aug. 28 at 7:55 a.m. EDT (1155 UTC) and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument gathered water vapor content and temperature information. It is expected to make a turn toward the west with a slight increase in forward speed over the next 24 hours. Aqua data showed Norman was quickly intensifying. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) predicts that Miriam will intensify as it moves toward the west along the southern periphery of the strong ridge to its north. Maximum sustained winds are near 80 mph (130 kph) with higher gusts. Tropical Depression 25W is moving toward the north-northwest at 10 mph. NASA’s IMERG surface rainfall accumulations were calculated for the period 22 to 27 August 2020 for both Hurricanes Marco and Laura. AIRS saw coldest cloud top temperatures being pushed away from the center by strong vertical wind shear. August 29 2018. The Yongsan Garrison located in the Yongsan District of Seoul, South Korea. Satellite imagery showed a much more disorganized system with light to moderate rainfall. NOAAs National Hurricane Center said “Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 kph) with higher gusts. The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season was an event in the annual hurricane season in the north Atlantic Ocean.It as an above-average season for tropical cyclones for the third consecutive year. The National Weather Service (NWS) in Tiyan, Guam noted at 11 a.m. EDT (1 a.m. CHST local time/1500 UTC) on Aug. 27, the center of Tropical Depression 25W was located near Latitude 14.5 degrees North and Longitude 158.4 degrees East. Fortunately, Miriam is far from land, so there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect. NASA research has found that cloud top temperatures that cold have the capability to generate heavy rainfall. NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite flew over Post-Tropical Cyclone Lane on Aug. 28 at 7:54 p.m. EDT (2354 UTC).The  Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite provided a visible image that showed wind shear has taken its toll on the storm and pushed all of the clouds northeast of the cloud-less center of circulation. There is also some drier air working its way into the circulation. Lane is a powerful category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. However, CPHC cautioned that interests in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands should continue to monitor the progress of Lane. That heavy rain was falling over open ocean waters. Some fluctuations in intensity are possible today, followed by gradual weakening from tonight. Atlantic May Spawn Four to Seven Hurricanes in 2018 Storm Season By . Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 126.6 mph (110 knots/203.7 kph) with higher gusts. In the Aug. 22 image, a prominent eye is also visible. NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over Lane on Aug. 27 at 8:17 a.m. EDT (1217 UTC). Infrared satellite data at 7:25 a.m. EDT (1125 UTC) on Sept. 4, from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA’s Aqua satellite showed coldest cloud top temperatures in Norman were around the eye and southwest of the eye. Miriam is then forecast to weaken back to tropical storm intensity on September 1, 2018. When NASA’s Terra satellite analyzed water vapor within Tropical Storm Jebi in the Northwestern Pacific Ocean on Aug. 28 found the storm had taken on the classic comma-shape of an organized storm. This motion is expected to continue tonight, followed by a turn toward the northwest on Thursday. Soulik is located to the southwest of Cimaron, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Jebi (was 25W – Northwestern Pacific Ocean) 2018, https://forecast.weather.gov/product.php?issuedby=PQ1&product=HLS&site=nws&format=txt, https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2018/lane/, https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2018/soulik-northwestern-pacific, Cimaron (Northwestern Pacific Ocean) 2018, NASA Aids Disaster Response after Eta and Iota Hit Central America. It was located about 420 miles (675 km) south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico. On Friday, a turn toward the north is anticipated as Lane’s forward motion slows even more. At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC) on Sept. 4, the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued the final warning on Jebi. There were some major impacts associated with Lane including heavy rains and strong winds. Some additional weakening is forecast later today and tonight, but Lane is expected to remain a dangerous hurricane as it approaches the islands. On Aug. 24 at 12:40 a.m. EDT (0430 UTC) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard Aqua captured a visible light image of Soulik after it moved off the Korean Peninsula. At 8:15 a.m. EDT (1215 UTC) the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard Aqua measured cloud top temperatures in Lane when it was a depression. Hurricane Lane was a long-live tropical cyclone that tracked from the East Pacific basin into the Central Pacific basin between August 15th and 29th. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles (65 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles (220 km). NOAA’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center or CPHC noted that a Hurricane Warning is in effect for Oahu, Maui County including the islands of Maui, Lanai, Molokai and Kahoolawe and Hawaii County. Storms with cloud top temperatures that cold have the capability to produce heavy rainfall. A turn back toward the west is expected on Saturday. They were embedded in a large area or storms that circled the eye where cloud top temperatures were as cold as or colder than minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius). Credit: NASA/NRL. As Tropical Storm Miriam was developing, the GPM or Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite observed the rainfall happening within the storm. NWS said “Residents of the Northern Marianas Islands…including Agrihan, Pagan and Alamagan should carefully monitor the progress of Tropical Depression 25W.”. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center or JTWC expects Soulik to move rapidly across the Sea of Japan and will become extra-tropical before reaching Hokkaido. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 16:52, July 31, 2018 (UTC) On Tuesday, August 28, 2018, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) noted that Miriam’s cloud pattern had still not improved very much from Aug. 27. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) noted at 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), the eye of Hurricane Norman was located near latitude 16.7 degrees north and longitude 120.8 degrees west. Lane will pass dangerously close to the main Hawaiian Islands as a hurricane on Friday, and is expected to bring damaging winds. Large swells generated by Lane will impact the Hawaiian Islands. Jebi’s eye was centered near 18.8 degrees north latitude and 141.0 degrees east longitude, or about 316 nautical miles northwest of Saipan. Despite the wind shear, Lane strengthened back into a tropical storm on Aug. 27. Stronger thunderstorms circled Norman’s center in a thicker ring on Sept. 6 when NASA’s Terra satellite passed over the hurricane. The most powerful convective storms scanned by the satellite’s radar were found in an intense feeder band of thunderstorms south of Jebi’s center of circulation. NOAA’s CPHC said, “Lane is moving toward the northwest near 7 mph (11 kph). However, the early part of the season was unusually inactive, so most measures of seasonal activity remain in the bottom third of the last 40 years. Norman is moving toward the west-northwest near 8 mph. The strongest East Pacific hurricane in August was Hurricane Genevieve. Further weakening is expected on Saturday, Aug.25. History tells us that August is the second most active month for tropical systems, and peaking in the first two weeks of September. Tropical Storm Jebi is forecast to intensify through Thursday, Aug. 30. Purple shows very cold clouds high in the atmosphere above the center of the hurricane, while blue and green show the warmer temperatures of lower clouds surrounding the storm center. Jebi was centered near 17.4 degrees north latitude and 150.5 degrees east longitude. The Integrated Multi-satellitE Retrievals for GPM (the Global Precipitation Measurement mission) or IMERG is used to estimate precipitation from a combination of passive microwave sensors, including GPM’s GMI microwave sensor and geostationary IR (infrared) data. The higher the cloud tops, the colder and the stronger they are. Lane is expected to remain a hurricane as it approaches the islands.”, By Rob Gutro Bottom line is 2004 is the only year in recorded weather history when hurricanes hit Orlando in August. August 9, 2018 US forecasts even fewer hurricanes in Atlantic for 2018 ... NOAA had anticipated a "near-normal" year with 10 to 16 named storms, including five to nine of hurricanes in 2018. NASA research has shown that storms with cloud top temperatures that cold (that are very high in the troposphere) have the capability to generate heavy rain. NASA’s Aqua satellite obtained a visible image of Hurricane Norman northeast of the Hawaiian Islands and found the storm weakening and battling wind shear. That’s about 345 miles northwest of Enetewak, and about 525 miles north of Pohnpei. Answer 1 of 10: My fiance and I are trying to determine where to go on our honeymoon next August, and Bermuda is a possibility; however, we're worried about the chance of a hurricane in August. The slow movement of Lane also greatly increases the threat for prolonged heavy rainfall and extreme rainfall totals. Also included is a stereo anaglyph, which combines two of the MISR angles to show a three-dimensional view of Lane. When NASA’s Terra satellite passed over the Northwestern Pacific Ocean on Aug. 27 it analyzed water vapor within newly formed Tropical Depression 25W and revealed three areas of strong concentrations. Temperature is important when trying to understand how strong storms can be. Norman is moving toward the west near 12 mph (19 kph), and this general motion is expected to continue through this morning. Those winds are ripping away the cloud tops of strong storms near the low-level center and pushing them to the northeast. Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 kph) with higher gusts. The GPM satellite’s Microwave Imager (GMI) and Dual-Frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR) instruments collected data in a swath that was centered west of tropical storm Jebi’s center of circulation. When NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Storm Miriam Aug. 27 and infrared data showed slight improvement from the day before. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument analyzed the storm in infrared light which provides temperature information. 00:48. So infrared light as that gathered by the MODIS instrument can identify the strongest sides of a tropical cyclone. NASA’s Aqua satellite observed Hurricane Lane in infrared light to those temperatures. A turn toward the west and west-northwest with an increase in forward speed is expected over the weekend and into next week. 4) July 31 st –13 th: 155 mph : 936 mb: N/A: Tropical Storm Ileana : August 4 th –7 th: 65 mph : 998 mb: N/A: Hurricane John (Cat. Coldest cloud tops were near minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius), east of the center. That’s about 480 miles (775 km) southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico. Reuters / Freitag, August 24, 2018 Hurricane Andrew, 1992: The fourth-most intense hurricane to ever make landfall, Andrew left a trail of destruction across Florida and 23 deaths in the U.S. On Aug. 30 at 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), NOAA’s National Hurricane Center or NHC noted Norman had rapidly strengthened during the past 12 to 24 hours, with the development of a well-defined 20-nautical mile wide eye and a thick ring of cold cloud tops of minus 94 to minus 121 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 70 to minus 85 degrees Celsius) Storms with cloud top temperatures that cold have the capability to produce heavy rainfall. CPHC noted that large ocean swells generated by Norman will produce rough surf along east facing shores of the Hawaiian Islands beginning later today and continuing through at least Thursday night. NASA’s Terra satellite passed over 25W on Aug. 27 at 7:05 a.m. EDT (1105 UTC) and the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument gathered water vapor content and temperature information. At 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC) on Aug. 29, the center of Tropical Storm Miriam was located near latitude 14.2 degrees north and longitude 138.4 degrees west. GPM is a joint satellite mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA. The final warning came from NOAA’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center at 0300 UTC on Aug. 29 (11 p.m. EDT on Aug. 28) when Lane’s center was located near 19.5 degrees north latitude and 168.3 degrees west longitude.
