On Friday, May 12th, the 2017 Hurricane Awareness Tour wrapped up its week-long swing along the East Coast at the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station Miami. The Opa Locka airport facility hosted NOAA42 “Kermit” as well as two U.S. Air Force Reserve’s C-130s, from the 53rd Weather Reconnaissance Squadron “Hurricane Hunters.” Tours of the aircraft […]

May’s science meeting consisted of 3 presentations: Jonathan Zawislak: Validation of tropical cyclone precipitation in HWRF using satellite observations Hua Chen – Azimuthal distribution of deep convection, environmental factors, and tropical cyclone rapid intensification: A perspective from HWRF ensemble forecasts of Hurricane Edouard Stephanie Stevenson (University of Albany/SUNY): Understanding intensity changes signaled by tropical cyclone lightning […]
On September 2, 2007, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Hurricane Hunter airplane flew into Hurricane Felix when it was a category-5 hurricane north of Venezuela. The aircraft measured wind speed of 163 kt (188 mph) at the ocean surface and an upward wind speed of 60 kt (69 mph), the fastest upward wind ever […]
Summary: Observing tropical cyclones around the world can be very expensive because they occur over oceans where there are few observations. Hurricane Hunter aircraft can reach hurricanes only when they are close to land. Thunderstorms near the centers of tropical cyclones cause waves (called “gravity waves”) in the atmosphere that move outward in spiral […]
Warm water provides the energy for tropical cyclones to form and intensify, and knowing the temperature of the water is important in predicting how strong a hurricane will become. Dropwindsondes are instruments that measure air temperature, moisture, pressure, and wind velocity as they fall toward the ocean after release from Hurricane Hunter aircraft, but they […]
