NASA's GPM finds Beryl's remnants raining on the Bahamas

July 11, 2018

The remnant thunderstorms from former Tropical Storm Beryl were bringing some areas of heavy rain to the Bahamas when the GPM satellite passed overhead.

The Global Precipitation Measurement mission or GPM core satellite provided a look at the rainfall being generated from Beryl's remnants on July 11 at 8:31 a.m. EDT (1231 UTC). GPM found two areas of heavy rain where rain was falling at more than 1.6 inches per hour. When GPM passed overhead, Crooked Island was experiencing the heaviest rainfall. The other area of heavy rainfall was over the Atlantic Ocean, northeast of Crooked Island.

GPM is a joint mission between NASA and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency known as JAXA.

On July 11 at 8 a.m. EDT, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said that the large area of cloudiness and disorganized thunderstorms associated with the remnants of Beryl was located over much of the Bahamas and extends northwestward over the western Atlantic for a few hundred miles.

NHC expects little or no development today, July 11, but conditions could become a little more favorable later in the week while the disturbance moves slowly northward over the western Atlantic.

The formation chance through 48 hours is low, but through five days, the chance for redevelopment back into a tropical depression increase.

#482 Body Builders
This week we explore how science and technology can help us walk when we've lost our legs, see when we've gone blind, explore unfriendly environments, and maybe even make our bodies better, stronger, and faster than ever before. We speak to Adam Piore, author of the book "The Body Builders: Inside the Science of the Engineered Human", about the increasingly amazing ways bioengineering is being used to reverse engineer, rebuild, and augment human beings. And we speak with Ken Thomas, spacesuit engineer and author of the book "The Journey to Moonwalking: The People That Enabled Footprints on the Moon" about...
