NOAA's GOES-West satellite saw the remnants of former Tropical Storm Linda begin to spread inland over the northern Baja Peninsula of Mexico, and they are expected to affect the southwestern U.S. over the next couple of days.
An image of the remnants of Tropical Storm Linda was taken from NOAA's GOES-West satellite on Sept. 11 at 10:15 a.m. EDT and showed the eastern side its associated clouds over the northern Baja peninsula.
The last advisory issued on Linda from the National Hurricane Center came on September 10 at 2100 UTC (5 p.m. EDT). At that time, Post-tropical cyclone Linda was located near 26.0 North and 118.6 West, about 260 nautical miles west-southwest of Punta Eugenia, Mexico and moving northwest at 6 knots. Maximum sustained winds were near 40 knots at the time. The NHC noted that Linda had ceased to qualify as a tropical cyclone.
By September 11 at 1005 UTC (7:05 a.m. EDT), Linda's remnants were centered near
26.5 North latitude and 119.5 West longitude. Winds of 20 to 30 knots were still occurring up to 150 nautical miles northeast of the center and out to 90 nautical miles southwest of the center.
The National Hurricane Center noted that moisture associated with the remnant low of Linda is spreading northward into northern Baja California and portions of the southwestern U.S., which could trigger some shower and thunderstorm activity.
In addition to the showers the Linda can bring inland, ocean swells are still affecting the Baja California peninsula, and continue to propagate toward the U.S. southern California coastline. These swells will result in an increased risk of rip currents and dangerous high surf through at least through September 11.
NHC noted that the low will continue to gradually spin down during the next few days with winds diminishing to 20 knots or less and seas subsiding to less than 8 feet by Saturday morning, September 12.

Scientists at the University Würzburg and University Hospital of Würzburg found that megakaryocytes act as “bouncers” and thus modulate bone marrow niche properties and cell migration dynamics. The study was published in July in the Journal “Haematologica”.
Hematopoiesis is the process of forming blood cells, which occurs predominantly in the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces all types of blood cells: red...
For some phenomena in quantum many-body physics several competing theories exist. But which of them describes a quantum phenomenon best? A team of researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harvard University in the United States has now successfully deployed artificial neural networks for image analysis of quantum systems.
Is that a dog or a cat? Such a classification is a prime example of machine learning: artificial neural networks can be trained to analyze images by looking...
An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bayreuth has produced a previously unknown material: Rhenium nitride pernitride. Thanks to combining properties that were previously considered incompatible, it looks set to become highly attractive for technological applications. Indeed, it is a super-hard metallic conductor that can withstand extremely high pressures like a diamond. A process now developed in Bayreuth opens up the possibility of producing rhenium nitride pernitride and other technologically interesting materials in sufficiently large quantity for their properties characterisation. The new findings are presented in "Nature Communications".
The possibility of finding a compound that was metallically conductive, super-hard, and ultra-incompressible was long considered unlikely in science. It was...
An interdisciplinary research team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has built platinum nanoparticles for catalysis in fuel cells: The new size-optimized catalysts are twice as good as the best process commercially available today.
Fuel cells may well replace batteries as the power source for electric cars. They consume hydrogen, a gas which could be produced for example using surplus...
