That heavy rain was falling over open ocean waters. Those cloud top temperatures were as cold as minus 63 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 53 degrees Celsius). 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. That’s 290 miles (470 km) northeast of Hilo, Hawaii. NASA’s Aqua satellite saw the sixteenth tropical depression of the Eastern Pacific Ocean come together on Aug. 28. A decrease in forward speed is expected tonight as Lane makes a turn toward the northwest. That’s about 520 miles (835 km) west-southwest of Honolulu, Hawaii. 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. Temperature is important when trying to understand how strong storms can be. On Aug. 26, there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect. Since the AIRS overpass, however, cloud tops have been warming in the southeast. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC) predicts that yet another typhoon called Jebi will be approaching the main islands of Japan early next week. 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 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. 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. Mature, intense tropical cyclones can and often undergo an eyewall replacement cycle. The Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) noted at 11 a.m. EDT (5 a.m. HST/1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Miriam was located near latitude 18.3 degrees north and longitude 141.2 degrees west. So infrared light as that gathered by the MODIS instrument can identify the strongest sides of a tropical cyclone. Lane may strengthen as an extratropical low as it passes over portions of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands from Tuesday night through Thursday, Aug. 30. NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. AIRS saw coldest cloud top temperatures around the center and in a large band of thunderstorms extending east and south of the center. Maximum sustained winds were near 63 mph (55 knots/102 kph) with higher gusts. Jebi is forecast to move west and stay well north of Guam then curve to the west of Iwo To and head north toward Japan. On the 24th the storm turned more northward and headed towards the Hawaiian Islands, but wind shear caused the storm to weaken. NASA’s Aqua satellite observed Cimaron in infrared light that revealed cloud top temperatures on Aug. 24 at 12:40 a.m. EDT (4:40 UTC) were coldest (yellow) and as cold as minus 50 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 45.5 degrees Celsius) in west central Japan. Maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 kph) with higher gusts. 00:48. Hurricane Miriam continues to track north through the Central Pacific Ocean and NASA’s Aqua satellite analyzed the storm infrared imagery. On Monday, August 27, 2018 there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect. At that time the center of Jebi was located near latitude 38.9 degrees north and longitude 137.7 degrees east. NASA’s Aqua satellite looked at Cimaron in infrared light and saw cloud tops were warming as the elongated storm weakened. Jebi was moving toward the north-northeast at 45 mph (39 knots/72kph). That’s about 590 miles east of Alamagan and 600 miles east of Pagan. A Hurricane Watch is in effect for Kauai County, including the islands of Kauai and Niiha. NOAA’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center or CPHC said at 8 a.m. EDT (2 a.m. HST) today, Saturday, August 25, 2018, “Lane’s outer rain bands producing severe flooding across parts of the Hawaiian Islands.”. Jebi was centered near 17.4 degrees north latitude and 150.5 degrees east longitude. 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. Tropical Depression 25W is forecast to intensify through Wednesday possibly becoming a tropical storm. Tropical cyclones continue to regularly develop in the Eastern Pacific Ocean. Norman is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale. Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Lane is expected to become a post-tropical remnant low later today or tonight. Miriam was moving toward the west near 12 mph (19 kph), and the NHC said this motion is expected to continue through Wednesday. In both of those areas, cloud top temperatures were as cold as minus 63 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 53 degrees Celsius). That’s 330 miles south-southwest of French Frigate Shoals, Hawaii. The environment remains favorable for continued intensification with warm sea surface temperatures, low vertical wind shear, and radial outflow.”. 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. By Rob Gutro The eye was covered by clouds which made the center difficult to locate. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 kph) with higher gusts. Norman is forecast to continue to move toward the northwest on Friday and Saturday, and along the forecast track, the center of Norman is expected to pass 200 to 300 miles to the northeast of the main Hawaiian Islands. 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. This view looking toward the southwest, reveals that downpours in the feeder band south of Jebi’s center were found by the satellite to reach heights above 13.4 km (8.3 miles). NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over Norman on Aug. 30 at 5:29 a.m. EDT (0929 UTC). They were embedded in a large area of storms   where cloud top temperatures were as cold as or colder than minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius). NASA’s Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR) captured images of Lane on just before noon local time on Aug. 24. 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. Large swells generated by Lane will impact the Hawaiian Islands. The coldest clouds were the strongest storms. 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. Those storms were being pushed there by strong westerly winds. Terra found powerful storms around the 15 nautical-mile wide eye in this Category 5 storm. 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. Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. Terra data showed a large ring of coldest and most powerful storms around Hurricane Lane’s eye on Aug. 23. Temperature is important when trying to understand how strong storms can be. GPM analyzed Typhoon Jebi as it was making its way toward Japan. NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP analyzed Hurricane Norman in the Central Pacific Ocean as it was rapidly intensifying into a major hurricane. Although the official forecast does not explicitly indicate Lane’s center making landfall over any of the islands, this remains a very real possibility. A Hurricane Watch is in effect for Kauai County…including the islands of Kauai and Niihau. At 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC) on Aug. 28 (11 p.m. HST, Aug. 27) the center of Tropical Depression Lane was located near latitude 18.4 degrees north and longitude 167.4 degrees west. 818-354-4269 Large and damaging surf can be expected along exposed shorelines, especially along south and west facing coasts, with localized storm surge exacerbating the impacts of a prolonged period of damaging surf. August is not typically the height of hurricane season but Charley and Frances did hit in 2004. MODIS saw coldest cloud top temperatures were as cold as minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius) around the center of circulation and in a thick band of thunderstorms spiraling into the center from the east and southeast. The storm had crossed central Japan and was emerging into the Sea of Japan. 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). 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. Cimaron has crossed the big island of Japan and became an extra-tropical cyclone. NOAA’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center or CPHC noted that interests in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands should continue to monitor the progress of Lane. MODIS saw coldest cloud top temperatures were as cold as minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius) in three areas around the center of circulation. Gradual weakening is anticipated to begin by Friday night or Saturday, however, Norman is expected to remain a very powerful hurricane during the next few days. NASA’s Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) captured Hurricane Lane when the Aqua satellite passed overhead on Aug. 22 and 23. Typhoon Jebi brought flooding to Japan and NASA’s IMERG estimated rainfall over the country and the surrounding region for a one-week period. Tropical Depression 25W is moving toward the north-northwest at 10 mph. 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. The MISR data were obtained from the NASA Langley Research Center Atmospheric Science Data Center in Hampton, Virginia. 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. Soulik is speeding to the northeast at 36 knots (41 mph/67 kph) and maximum sustained winds are near 35 knots (40 mph/62 kph) with higher gusts. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles (130 km) from the center. NASA’s Aqua satellite provided an infrared look at Norman as it continued weakening and moving northwest of the Hawaiian Islands. Maximum sustained winds are near 120 mph (195 kph) with higher gusts. Lane formed from a weak low pressure system off the southwest coast of Mexico, reaching tropical depression strength on the 15th. 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. Norman is moving toward the west near 17 mph (28 kph). Cimaron was moving to the north-northeast and had maximum sustained winds near 45 knots (52 mph/83 kph). Infrared data provided cloud top temperatures. Atlantic May Spawn Four to Seven Hurricanes in 2018 Storm Season By . Wherever cloud top temperatures are as cold as or colder than minus 63 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 53 degrees Celsius), those storms have the potential to drop heavy rain. The GPM was coupled with an infrared image from NOAA’s GOES-West satellite to show the clouds of the tropical storm and form and entire picture. They were embedded in a large area of storms   where cloud top temperatures were as cold as or colder than minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius). On Aug. 29, microwave data showed the low-level center still slightly displaced from the deep convection due to about … There were some major impacts associated with Lane including heavy rains and strong winds. The area of stronger storms in Hurricane Norman have expanded over the last several day in infrared NASA imagery as the storm intensified. The higher the cloud tops, the colder and the stronger they are. Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 kph) with higher gusts. So far, the storm is being blamed for 11 fatalities and as many as 300 injuries in Japan. Anonymous 2.0 (talk) 16:52, July 31, 2018 (UTC) 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. Fortunately, that heavy rain is falling over open ocean waters. Miriam is expected to become a post-tropical remnant low pressure area on Sunday, Sept. 2. 2) August 5 th –10 th: 105 mph : 969 mb: N/A: Tropical Storm Kristy : August 7 th –11 th: 70 mph : 991 mb: N/A MISR, flying onboard NASA’s Terra satellite, carries nine cameras that observe Earth at different angles. At least one fatality was blamed on Hurricane Lane. A recent microwave image showed a rather well-defined eye. Water vapor releases latent heat as it condenses into liquid. Working in tandem, the two instruments make simultaneous observations all the way down to Earth’s surface, even in the presence of heavy clouds. That’s about 345 miles northwest of Enetewak, and about 525 miles north of Pohnpei. 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. This general motion is expected to continue through tonight. A turn toward the northwest is expected Thursday and Thursday night. Temperature is important when trying to understand how strong storms can be. On Sept. 4 at 7:24 p.m. EDT (2324 UTC) the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard NASA-NOAA’s Suomi NPP satellite captured a visible image of Hurricane Norman. At 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Norman was located near latitude 17.5 degrees north and longitude 114.6 degrees west. NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, For earlier information on Lane go to:  https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2018/lane/, Aug. 24, 2018 – NASA Tracks Tropical Storm Soulik into the Sea of Japan. Lane is then expected to accelerate northwestward by Tuesday as it transitions to an extratropical low. That powerful band of thunderstorms showed coldest cloud tops had temperatures near minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius). A turn toward the west and west-northwest with an increase in forward speed is expected over the weekend and into next week. 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. The higher the cloud tops, the colder and the stronger they are. The surf is forecast to diminish on Friday, Sept. 7. Cimaron was moving northeast and has become extra-tropical and asymmetric. On Aug. 28, NOAA’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center or CPHC noted that there were no coastal watches or warnings in effect. They were embedded in a large area of storms   where cloud top temperatures were as cold as or colder than minus 70 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 56.6 degrees Celsius). Over 30 inches of rain has already fallen at a couple locations on the windward side of the Big Island.”. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect as Norman is far from land. 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. Warm ocean temperatures and low vertical wind shear are providing a favorable environment for Jebi’s intensification. A Hurricane Warning is in effect for Oahu, Maui County…including the islands of Maui, Lanai, Molokai and Kahoolawe. 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. The heavy rains mostly impacted the Big Island and Kauai, with widespread reports of more than 40 inches of rain causing flooding and mudslides on the Big Island. August 9, 2018 - NOAA lowers its 2018 forecast to a 30% chance for an above-normal season, with a total of nine to 13 named storms, including zero to two major hurricanes. The strongest East Pacific hurricane in August was Hurricane Genevieve. Those winds are ripping away the cloud tops of strong storms near the low-level center and pushing them to the northeast. A turn toward the west is anticipated on Saturday, with an increase in forward speed. The tropical storm was about 185 nautical miles west-southwest of Misawa, Japan. Further weakening is expected on Saturday, Aug.25. On Aug. 28, wind shear was still affecting the storm. 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. Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (140 kph) with higher gusts. The Season had a Semi-Late Start, with Tropical Storm Alberto forming on June 30th.. It was located about 420 miles (675 km) south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico. CPHC said, “Some weakening is forecast during the next day or so, with more significant weakening thereafter. The JTWC predicts that the typhoon will have peak sustained winds of 115 knots (132 mph) as it moves over the northern Pacific Ocean toward Japan next week. 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. CPHC said those were located from 50 nautical miles northwest to over 100 nautical miles northeast and east of the center. Aqua observed fragmented bands of thunderstorms circling a low-level center of circulation and some stronger storms within them. 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. Temperature is important when trying to understand how strong storms can be. A west-southwestward motion is forecast on Friday, followed by a turn back toward the west and west-northwest over the weekend. Lane is moving toward the west near 8 mph (13 km/h), and this motion is expected to continue today. Some additional strengthening is forecast during the next 12 to 24 hours. 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. Miriam is moving toward the west near 14 mph (22 kph), and this general motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days. 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.. 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. By 11 a.m. EDT (5 a.m. HST/1500 UTC), NOAA’s CPHC said that Lane regained strength and was upgraded from a tropical depression to a tropical storm. It was centered near 40.8 degrees north latitude and 137.7 degrees east longitude, about 161 miles west of Misawa, Japan. 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. (MORE: Atlantic Basin Could Have Zero Hurricanes in August 2018) The year with the fewest number of named storms, four, and the lowest ACE, 17 units, is … A satellite image that combines infrared data from NOAA’s GOES-West satellite to show clouds with rainfall data from NASA/JAXA’s GPM satellite. Accumulated IMERG rainfall estimates over Japan and the surrounding region for the 1-week period from August 29 to Sept. 5, 2018 show rainfall amounts on the order of 100 mm (~4 inches) or more covering much of the main island of Honshu and Shikoku in the south. Then, that outer ring of thunderstorms chokes off the original eye wall, starving it of moisture and momentum. Ahead of and during the season, several national meteorological services and scientific agencies forecast how many named storms, hurricanes, and major hurricanes will form during a season or how many tropical cyclones will affect a particular country. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument analyzed the storm in infrared light which provides temperature information. NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over Hurricane Norman in the Central Pacific Ocean and found that the storm continued to maintain its structure. Lane then took a more westward turn, away from the islands and dissipated by the 29th. Lane is expected to remain a hurricane as it approaches the islands.”, By Rob Gutro Jebi was moving toward the west near 14 mph (12 knots/22kph). 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. GPM is a joint mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, JAXA. Credit: NASA/JAXA, Hal Pierce. Computer forecast models show that Soulik and Cimaron would remain two separate systems. NASA’s Aqua satellite data showed wind shear was pushing Tropical Depression Lane’s strongest storms east of its center. AIRS saw coldest cloud top temperatures being pushed east of center by strong vertical wind shear. On Friday, a turn toward the north is anticipated as Lane’s forward motion slows even more. It is 825 miles (1,330 km) west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. 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. At the time of the Aqua satellite overpass, Miriam’s cloud pattern and overall convective organization had improved from earlier in the day. Aqua data showed Norman was quickly intensifying. 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 NASA’s IMERG surface rainfall accumulations were calculated for the period 22 to 27 August 2020 for both Hurricanes Marco and Laura. The infrared imagery represents the temperatures of cloud tops and the ocean surface. The University of Wisconsin- Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies or UW-CIMSS diagnosed vertical wind shear of over 69 mph (60 knots/111 kph) were affecting Tropical Depression Lane. The image has been rotated in such a way that north is at the bottom. For updated forecasts, visit: http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc. As Norman intensified, the stronger storms expanded further out from the eye. As the Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite passed over Tropical Storm Miriam on Aug. 28 at 9:39 a.m. EDT (1339 UTC) it continued to strengthen. This motion is expected to continue tonight, followed by a turn toward the northwest on Thursday. The higher the cloud tops, the colder and the stronger they are. In … Credit: NASA/JAXA, Hal Pierce. For updates on Norman, visit:  http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc, By Rob Gutro   NOAAs National Hurricane Center said “Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 kph) with higher gusts. For updated forecasts on Norman, visit:  http://www.prh.noaa.gov/cphc. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 60 mph (95 kph) with higher gusts. The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder or AIRS instrument analyzed the storm in infrared light which provides temperature information. For updated forecasts on Miriam, visit: www.nhc.noaa.gov, By  Rob Gutro / Hal Pierce Jebi then crossed the southern coast of the main island of Honshu near Kobe, bringing heavy rains and high winds to the region. Storms with cloud top temperatures that cold have the capability to produce heavy rainfall. Weakening is expected over the next couple of days. Rapid strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Norman is expected to become a hurricane later today, and possibly a major hurricane on Thursday, Aug. 30. Rainfall is the biggest threat from Lane. AIRS saw coldest cloud top temperatures being pushed slightly east of center by light vertical wind shear. Storms with cloud top temperatures that cold have the capability to produce heavy rainfall. NASA found heavy rainfall occurring in Tropical Storm Miriam as it continued moving through the Eastern Pacific Ocean. The number of named storms ranked as a tie for the tenth most on record. Jebi’s center crossed near Kyoto before it emerged into the Sea of Japan where it is getting caught up in the mid-latitude westerly jet stream. There are no watches or warnings in effect. Two days later on the 27th of August the system was upgraded to a tropical depression, which continued to intensify, becoming a named tropical storm, the 21st of  the season, the following day. Storms with cloud top temperatures that cold have the capability to produce heavy rainfall. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 65 mph (100 kph) with higher gusts. Forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center noted “While the structure continues to improve, winds will lag slightly as the primary circulation catches up to the secondary circulation represented by convection. A Typhoon Watch means destructive winds of 74 mph or more are possible within the next 48 hours. Tropical Activity on Record Pace in Northeast Pacific. Overnight, Norman remained generally steady but had some recent development of new deep convection very close to the estimated low-level circulation center. NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. In the Aug. 22 image, a prominent eye is also visible. Bottom line is 2004 is the only year in recorded weather history when hurricanes hit Orlando in August.
