HRD marks the end of the 2013 hurricane season

The 2013 Atlantic hurricane season officially ends on Saturday, November 30.  The season was very inactive, having the fewest hurricanes since 1982, and ranks as the sixth-least-active Atlantic hurricane season since 1950.  Despite this, HRD had a very active year in gathering data for research and assimilation into numerical models to improve forecasts. Tail Doppler […]

Doppler radar quick-looks from 2:00 PM P-3 flight into Hurricane Ingrid, 15 September 2013

As Hurricane Ingrid continued to move westward in the Bay of Campeche toward a landfall in Mexico (the Mexican coast is visible as black line to the left in the images) a NOAA P-3 mission collected data to study the impact of shear on tropical cyclones. Included here you see images of the horizontal winds […]
