At 800 UTC/3 a.m. EST, the center of System 91S was located near 18.2 south latitude and 39.1 east longitude, about 370 nautical miles northeast of Maputo, Mozambique (which is in the southernmost part of the country).
TRMM passed over System 91S on Jan. 30 at 0820 UTC/3:20 a.m. EST and captured rainfall data on the low. The heaviest rainfall rates were occurring over the waters of the Mozambique Channel (yellow/orange).
TRMM passed over System 91S on January 30 at 0820 UTC/3:20 a.m. EST and captured rainfall data on the low. The heaviest rainfall rates were occurring over the waters of the Mozambique Channel, where rain was falling in one area at about 1 inch/25 mm per hour.
Other rainfall from the system was light. The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory overlaid TRMM rainfall imagery on top of visible imagery from Europe's METEO-7 satellite to provide a full picture of the low. The center appeared to be in the western Channel, while the heaviest rainfall was occurring in the eastern Channel.
Animated multispectral satellite imagery shows that the low-level center is elongating as a result of wind shear. A ridge of high pressure located southwest of System 91S is creating moderate wind shear (20 to 25 knots/37.0 to 46.3 kph/23.0 to 28.7 mph) hampering development.
Forecasters at the Joint Typhoon Warning Center have dropped the chances for System 91S to a low chance for potential for tropical development in the next day or two.

Researchers in the Cockrell School of Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin are one step closer to delivering smart windows with a new level of energy efficiency, engineering materials that allow windows to reveal light without transferring heat and, conversely, to block light while allowing heat transmission, as described in two new research papers.
By allowing indoor occupants to more precisely control the energy and sunlight passing through a window, the new materials could significantly reduce costs for...
Argonne scientists used Mira to identify and improve a new mechanism for eliminating friction, which fed into the development of a hybrid material that exhibited superlubricity at the macroscale for the first time. Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) researchers helped enable the groundbreaking simulations by overcoming a performance bottleneck that doubled the speed of the team's code.
While reviewing the simulation results of a promising new lubricant material, Argonne researcher Sanket Deshmukh stumbled upon a phenomenon that had never been...
