Tropical Storm Arlene never made to hurricane strength, but did become a strong tropical storm with maximum sustained winds near 65 mph. To be classified hurricane strength maximum winds need to be 74 mph or greater.

As a strong tropical storm, Arlene is creating a lot of problems with very heavy rainfall causing flash flooding and mudslides in mountainous areas. Arlene is dropping between 4 and 8 inches of rain as it tracks through northern Mexico with isolated amounts up to 15 inches falling in mountainous areas.Arlene made landfall near Cabo Rojo in northeastern Mexico this morning, June 30 at 7 a.m. EDT. It continues to move west through northern Mexico. By 11 a.m. EDT, Arlene's center was just west of Cabo Rojo as it tracks slowly to the west at 7 mph (11 kmh). It was centered near 21.6 North and 97.7 West. That's about 45 miles north-northwest of Tuxpan and the same distance from Tampico, although south-southeast of that city. Minimum central pressure is 994 millibars.
Both GOES-13 and GOES-11 are operated by NOAA. NASA's GOES Project creates images and animations from both satellites, and used the continuous data from GOES-13 to make a two-day movie showing Arlene's landfall today. NASA's GOES Project works out of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.
The animation shows Arlene from June 28 at 1415 (10:15 a.m. EDT) to June 30 at 1415. In those two days, the circulation of Arlene became more apparent as the center moved away from the Yucatan Peninsula and into the southwestern Gulf of Mexico. Satellite imagery also showed that eastern side of the storm contained more cloud cover when it was over open ocean.
The National Hurricane Center noted that the center of Arlene should continue moving inland over mainland Mexico today and will likely dissipate over the central Mexico mountains sometime on Friday, July 1.

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
