The Redevelopment of a Warm-Core Structure in Erin: A Case of Inland Tropical Storm Formation

December 2010

Remarkable radar and satellite images are presented to illustrate the unusual inland reintensification of Tropical Storm Erin over Oklahoma during the evening of 18 August 2007 to the early morning hours of the 19th. Using a blend of objectively and subjectively produced analyses, the authors document the warm-core nature of the disturbance as it reorganized. The evidence presented suggests that attention on such disturbances should remain under tropical forecasting domains, even though presently accepted conventions preclude assigning tropical storm nomenclature to such a system.

    Data assimilation is used among other things to constrain the initial conditions of weather forecasting models by fitting the model fields to observations made over a certain time interval. In particular, it tries to tie incomplete data with model constraints to detect and correct for initial...

    Weather forecasting has become an indispensable application to predict the state of the atmosphere for a future time based on cloud cover identification. But it generally needs the experience of a well-trained meteorologist. In this paper, a novel method is proposed for automatic cloud cover...
