GOES-13 sees new Tropical Storm Bonnie raining on south Florida

26.07.2010
Tropical Depression 3 strengthened into tropical storm Bonnie at 6:15pm EDT on July 22, when it was centered about 200 miles southeast of Nassau, Bahamas. At 5 a.m. EDT today, July 23, Bonnie was 155 miles southeast of Miami and the GOES-13 satellite has been providing forecasters a visible image of Bonnie continually.

The visible image on July 23 at 1140 UTC (7:40 a.m.) EDT) from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite called GOES-13 satellite showed Tropical Storm Bonnie's cloud-covered center south of Miami, Fla. GOES satellites are operated by NOAA. The NASA GOES Project, located in Greenbelt, Md. creates imagery and animations of GOES imagery.

Tropical storm watch is in effect for the east coast of Florida north of Deerfield Beach to Jupiter Inlet including Lake Okeechobee, and the Northern Gulf Coast from Destin, Florida to Morgan City, Louisiana. Tropical storm warnings are in effect for the Northwestern Bahamas, the Florida east coast from Deerfield Beach southward, including all of the Florida Keys, Florida Bay and along the Florida west coast northward to Englewood.

At 5 a.m. EDT, Bonnie's center was located near latitude 24.1 north and longitude 78.6 west, which is about 155 miles southeast of Miami, Fla. and about 165 miles east-southeast of Marathon, Florida. Maximum sustained winds were near 40 mph. Bonnie is moving toward the west- northwest near 18 mph and the National Hurricane Center expects it to continue moving in this direction over the next day or two. Bonnie is expected to pass near the Florida Keys and southern Florida then move over the eastern Gulf of Mexico tonight. Tropical storm watches issued for southern Mississippi and southeast Louisiana as Bonnie is forecast to move that way this weekend.

Miami is under a tropical storm warning today. This morning at 8:05 a.m. EDT, a large area of moderate to heavy rainfall was moving over Miami north to West Palm Beach. A flood watch is in effect through the afternoon of July 23 for all of South Florida.

The National Hurricane Center noted that tropical storm conditions will continue of parts of the northwestern Bahamas this morning and then spread over southern Florida, including the Keys. Bonnie is expected to produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 3 inches over south Florida with possible isolated maximum amounts of 5 inches. Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are possible over the northwestern Bahamas. Isolated tornadoes are possible over extreme southern Florida later today.

GOES-13 will continue to provide coverage in visible images during the daytime and infrared images over night-time hours and will watch Bonnie as she moves into the Gulf of Mexico this weekend.

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
