NASA's IMERG Used To Analyze Tropical Storm Usagi's Rainfall

Usagi strengthened to hurricane intensity as it approached Vietnam from the South China Sea but weakened to tropical storm intensity when coming ashore. Very heavy rainfall and damaging winds accompanied tropical storm Usagi when it hit Vietnam's southern coast. More than 350 mm (14 inches) of rainfall was reported causing widespread flooding around Ho Chi Minh City.

GPM Probes Tropical Storm ISAAC

Hurricane Florence, tropical storm ISAAC and hurricane Helene are currently active in the Atlantic Ocean. Tropical storm ISAAC is the next tropical cyclone to affect the western Atlantic. It is moving westward toward the Leeward and Windward Islands. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) predicts that ISAAC will pass through the Leeward and Windward Islands and move into the Caribbean Sea over the next few days. The NHC predicts that ISAAC will weaken as it encounters moderate vertical shear and nearby dry air.

Tropical Storm Gordon's Rainfall Measured With IMERG

Tropical Storm Gordon became the seventh named system of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season on Monday September 3, 2018. GORDON became more intense as it moved through the eastern Gulf Of Mexico but didn't quite make it to hurricane force before landfall. GORDON was a strong tropical storm with winds of about 70 mph (~ 61 kts) when it hit southeastern Mississippi on September 5, 2018. GORDON continued to produce rainfall as it moved inland. Weakening GORDON spawned a tornado near Picayune, Mississippi on Thursday September 6, 2018.

Tropical Storm Ampil's Rainfall Evaluated With GPM Satellite Data

Tropical storm AMPIL was moving toward the northwest with winds of about 50 kts (57.5 mph) when the GPM core observatory satellite flew above on July 20, 2018 at 0656 UTC. Data received by the satellite's Microwave Imager (GMI) and Dual-Frequency Precipitation Radar (DPR) instruments were used in this analysis of AMPIL's precipitation. GMI and DPR showed that the northern side of the tropical storm was nearly dry and that rain bands in that area were producing only light to moderate rainfall.

Tropical Storm Prapiroon Probed By GPM Core Observatory Satellite

Tropical depression 09W was located in the northwest Pacific east of the Philippines when it was upgraded today to tropical storm PRAPIROON. The tropical storm is in a favorable environment for intensification. Vertical wind shear is low above the tropical cyclone and sea surface temperatures are warm below.
