Hurricane Dorian, still a powerful Category 5 hurricane, tracked extremely slowly across the eastern half of the Great Bahama island, before grinding to a virtual standstill and beginning a slow turn towards the north. CAT5 Hurricane Dorian in local morning light, revealing exceptionally symmetric structure with a large central dense overcast and impressive eye. September 2, 11:47 UTC. Image: GOES-16 / Tropical Tidbits. Peak sustained wind speed has dropped somewhat from yesterday’s peak of 185 mph (298 km/h) to 165 mph (265 km/h), still well withing Category 5. Any slight respite the minor drop in wind speed brought was offset by the exceedingly slow motion of the system, tracking westwards at virtually a snail’s pace, before coming to a standstill […]

Explanations for abbreviations (TSTM, SLGT, ENH, etc.) SYNOPSIS Strong upper ridge persists over the N Atlantic and W Europe while a short-wave crosses central Europe with an associated surface cold front. The main deep trough remains over the Arctic region and N Europe while to the east, another strong ridge is located over E Europe and NW Russia. An upper low is located over NW Africa, effecting Iberian peninsula as well. DISCUSSION ENH risk has been issued for NE Italy, N Adriatic into WNW Slovenia and NW Croatia with threat for severe storms, capable of producing severe winds, large hail and torrential / excessive rainfall. Widespread activity is expected along and ahead of the moving cold front with organized storms […]
Tänavune putuka-aasta on kummaline. Herilasi lihtsalt pole. Pole juba teist aastat ja seda kummalisem on lehest lugeda, et rulluisumaratonil Tartus tuli nii mõnelegi osalisele arstiabi anda, sest nad said herilastelt nõelata! Ju oli kuskil üks maaherilaste pesa. Ometi on nii, et võid terve suure potitäie moosiõunu rõdul ära puhastada, enne kui kaks õnnetut herilast asja uudistama tulevad.
Pigem tulevad mesilased magusa vastu huvi tundma, sest õietoit on otsas.
Hurricane Dorian is a monster, no doubt about that. It packs intense Category 5 winds and a massive storm surge, producing devastation as it tracks over the northern Bahamas. But where does Dorian fit in the larger picture – how does it compare with other great Atlantic hurricanes and other great tropical cyclones? CAT5 Hurricane Dorian approaching the Bahamas on September 1, 2019. Image: NOAA GOES-16 IR / Vis. There have been five Category 5 hurricanes in four years – Dorian being the latest There have been 5 CAT5 hurricanes in the last four years. Hurricane Matthew was the first Atlantic CAT5 since 2007, peaking at 165 mph and 934 mbar on October 1st, 2016. Hurricane Irma pushed to 180 […]
Vaatame Eesti loodusrekordeid.
Aasta 2013 Postimehe Arteri jõulunumbris esitlesin 25 loodusrekordit, seda artiklis „Rekordid otse loodusest“. Aasta 2014 kevadeks oli sellest välja kasvanud idee, et hakata koguma üldse Eesti loodusrekordeid ja hakkasingi siis ka pihta. Nüüd on nad kõik koos ja kokku sadade kaupa. Selles rubriigis saab neist nüüd lugeda.

Category 5 Hurricane Dorian is tracking across the northern Bahamas.It has weakened very slightly over the past several hours, but remains an extremely powerful hurricane. There is still uncertainty on the effects it will bring to Florida as it approaches. Hurricane Dorian over the eastern half of Grand Bahama at 6:42 UTC this morning, September 2nd. The CDO cloud top temperature has increased from nearly -80 °C to about -70 °C, likely indicating slight weakening of the hurricane. The eye remains well-defined and round. Image: GOES-16 IR / Tropical Tidbits. Latest recon data indicates hurricane Dorian has weakened very slightly as it very slowly pushes west across the northern Bahamas. At 175 mph (282 km/h) peak sustained winds and 916 […]

It takes guts and a special breed of airmen and meteorologists – to fly directly into a hurricane. A Category 5 major hurricane, no less. Riding out the roughest winds and turbulence to gather critical data on the ongoing storm that feed models and forecasts which save lives. And the views are out of this world! Imagine punching through the eyewall into the clear hurricane eye: the eyewall rising towards the tropopause all around you, with the sky overhead completely clear. Resembling the view from inside a stadium – this is called the stadium effect. Only Hurricane Hunters quite regularly see this exceptional sight. It can be seen from the ground if the eye is very clear, also of low […]
After explosively strengthening to a powerful CAT5 hurricane, Dorian is now tracking west, bringing extremely severe winds, torrential rainfall and major storm surge to the Bahamas. We take a look at its future track and which are it will likely affect. Cameras outside the station captured views of #HurricaneDorian at 12:16 p.m. ET on Sept. 1 as it churned over the northern Bahamas. The storm is a dangerous Category 5 hurricane, carrying the strongest winds in recorded history for the northwestern Bahamas. #Hurricane #Dorian pic.twitter.com/ug0sdD5JOj — Intl. Space Station (@Space_Station) September 1, 2019 The future track of Dorian is now generally well defined: it is expected to track due west across the northern Bahamas for the next 24 hours, until […]
The extremely powerful hurricane Dorian made first landfall in the northeastern Bahamas. Hurricane Hunter aircraft recon indicated rapid strengthening of the hurricane, with peak sustained wind speeds of 185 mph (298 km/h) and a central pressure down to ~910 mbar. *Tropical* Exceptional view of CAT5 Hurricane #Dorian as it approaches landfall on Abaco Islands, Bahamas right now – note how clear and symmetric the eye is! 30-sec (!!), 500 m GOES East imagery. Video via @bill_line pic.twitter.com/WqdkLeiA5e — severe-weather.EU (@severeweatherEU) September 1, 2019 Indeed the satellite presentation of hurricane Dorian just before landfall was by far the most impressive so far, displaying a symmetric eyewall and a massive central dense overcast, with a thick, complete eyewall. In addition to extremely […]
*UPDATE* Category 5 hurricane Dorian now at central pressure of 909 mbar with sustained winds of 180 mph, Abaco islands (Bahamas) under a destructive threat today
The exceptionally powerful hurricane Dorian continues deepening as seen by the latest NOAA Hurricane Hunters data and satellite imagery. Very impressive data has been collected on the latest recon flights, Dorian is packing sustained winds of 180 mph (= 290 km/h) and gusts well above 200 mph (330 km/h). The central pressure has dropped even more and is, based on the dropsonde observations, now at 909 mbar. National Hurricane Center (NHC) has updated the latest advisory. Here is some strong wording from the latest forecast discussion: Air Force and NOAA reconnaissance planes penetrated the distinct eye of Dorian and found that the hurricane has become extremely intense with a stadium effect in the eye. The NOAA plane reported a peak […]
Potentially catastrophic Category 5 hurricane Dorian is bearing down on the Bahamas today, but there is more activity in the tropical Atlantic. Potentially catastrophic CAT 5 hurricane Dorian in GOES-16 visual imagery as it grinds towards the Bahamas. September 1, 14:12 UTC. Image: Tropical Tidbits. Three additional area of potential imminent tropical development are being monitored in the tropical Atlantic. Five-day graphical tropical weather outlook indicating three additional disturbances / areas of potential imminent tropical development. Map: NOAA NWS National Hurricane Center. A significant tropical disturbance, a broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave, is located just south of the Cape Verde islands off the western coast of Africa. NOAA National Hurricane Center estimates 70% chance of […]
