Kuigi püüame praegust aega nimetada esimeste öökülmade ajaks, peame endale aru andma, et miski on looduses nüüd pöördumatult muutunud. Just sellistel hommikutel, kui aknast idakaarde vaadates näeme imeilusat punase-kollase-oranži tulemöllu, tabab meid õue minnes ja murule astudes pikk jääliug. Talv on tulekul.
Puhtu mets sügisel
Yet another tropical system is bringing potential threat for damaging storm surge, winds and flooding this week. Tropical cyclone Luban has developed along the southeast Arabian peninsula and is heading towards SW Oman where it is expected to make landfall on Friday. This could become another potentially destructive cyclone with life-threatening flooding and winds during landfall. A 6-hour step sequence of the development of tropical cyclone nearing Oman on Thursday and Friday. The gradual strengthening on its way towards Oman is visible. Peak wind gusts and accumulated rainfall swaths along the cyclone’s track on its way towards landfall near Salalah city, southwest Oman. Peak wind gusts could exceed 170 km/h just in the last 18-24 hours prior to landfall when […]
Sügiseste linnuvaatluspäevadega lõppes ka suviste aialinnupäevikute täitmine. Vaatlusandmetelt pilku üle libistades tundub, et osalejaid oli umbes sama palju kui varasematel aastatel, kuid vaatluskirjeid on tänavu vist senisest enam. Ja see on väga tore, et iga aastaga aina rohkem vaatlusi kirja pannakse!
Strong hurricane Michael will cross the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to make landfall in Florida this week
The Gulf of Mexico will soon become active as new Tropical storm Michael has developed in the western Caribbean, east of the Yucatan peninsula, Mexico. Potential is increasing for a strong hurricane to develop in the coming days while the system will be moving across the Gulf. Landfall is currently expected in Florida on late Wednesday night. Latest satellite imagery indicates an organizing tropical storm in the western Caribbean, centered just SW of Cuba. A lot of very deep convection is visible around the centre of the low, pressure is near 985 mbar . Peak winds and accumulated rainfall swaths along currently forecast Michael’s path across the eastern Gulf of Mexico into southeast United States. HWRF and ECMWF model guidance, […]
Sookured „Soits 1“ ja „Soits 2“ lahkusid kodupaigast Elistveres 18.septembril, viibides hetkel Ida-Ungari Hortobagy Rahvuspargis
Meie seast hiljuti lahkunud Aivar Leito eestvedamisel Eestis aastatel 2016-2018 märgistatud ja praegu toimivaid satellitsaatjaid kandvad 9 sookurge on oma sügisrändel jõudnud kas Saksamaale, Poola või Ungarisse.
The general situation across Europe shows a dipole pattern with a powerful upper ridge across northeastern Europe and northwestern Russia while deep troughs and cyclones are expected over the northern Atlantic ocean. Such pattern will develop a late “heat wave”, a period of very warm weather across a large part of Europe through this week. An intense pressure and temperature gradient across western Europe will result in very dynamic weather – deep cyclones will affect British Isles and Ireland, where at least one severe windstorm is becoming increasingly likely on Friday. The pattern on Friday reveals an intense ridge over NE Europe with a very deep cyclone (even below 950 mbar) over the northern Atlantic, centered west of British Isles. […]
Eelmisel nädalal jõudsid valgepõsk-lagled Eestimaale ja ka Haeskasse kaamera ette – jäid selgelt hiljaks, paari nädala jagu või rohkemgi. Põhjas hoidis neid soe ilm viimase vindini paigas ja sestap septembris polnudki neid näha, kui välja arvata üksikud väikesed kohaliku päritoluga salgad.
Eilne radarivaatlus Esiveres näitas sel sügisel esimest korda nii suurt erinevate linnuliikide rännet artikast, mis ulatus suurusjärku sada tuhat isendit. Soodne õrn põhjatuul pani linnud liikvele.
Täna varahommikune hetk, kui temperatuur käis ära ka miinus poolel.
The now Tropical Storm Leslie remains a well-organized tropical system and is expected to become a hurricane again in two days. Leslie will then head towards Madeira island or midway between Azores and Canary islands before nearing west-southwest Europe this weekend. Potential exists for possible landfall in Portugal or even Ireland per global models, trends are being monitored. The future path of Leslie leads it towards southeast through the next 3 days, then it turns east-northeast and heads towards Azores and Madeira island later this week. The arrival time to the islands would be late Thursday or Friday morning. However, Leslie’s future track is still quite uncertain based on global models: here is an example of the latest GFS model […]
A shallow cyclone, designated #92L has developed midway between the Azores and the Canary Islands this past weekend. It is currently located just west of Madeira island, gradually moving east. This cyclone does not have tropical characteristics, but consists of widespread thunderstorms which could potentially result in flash floods across Madeira and possibly parts of the Canary Islands in the next few days. Infrared satellite image and water vapour satellite animation indicate cyclone’s centre just west of Madeira island, with some deep convection on its eastern part. The position of the cyclone today and accumulated precipitation until Wednesday. The future path of this cyclone will likely lead it between Madeira and Canary islands before turning NE towards NW Morocco, Gibraltar […]
