GOES-West Satellite shows shear in Tropical Depression 15E

September 14, 2017

NOAA's GOES-West satellite revealed that vertical wind shear is affecting Tropical Depression 15E in the Eastern Pacific Ocean.

NOAA's GOES-West satellite captured an infrared image of Tropical Depression 15E on Sept. 14 at 10:01 a.m. EDT (1401 UTC). The image revealed the storm remains disorganized as a result of wind shear. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said "The depression continues to be disorganized with the low- and middle-level centers well separated due to vertical wind shear."

On Sept. 14 at 5 a.m. EDT (At 200 AM PDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression 15E was located near 15.3 degrees north latitude and 122.2 degrees west longitude. The depression was far from land areas and about 960 miles (1,540 km) west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico.

The depression was moving toward the west-northwest near 5 mph (7 kph), but a slow westward motion is expected during the next day or so. Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph (55 kph) with higher gusts. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 millibars.

The National Hurricane Center expects no change in strength on Sept. 14, but the depression still has a chance to become a tropical storm in a couple of days.

Radiolab Presents: Anna in Somalia
This week, we are presenting a story from NPR foreign correspondent Gregory Warner and his new globe-trotting podcast Rough Translation. Mohammed was having the best six months of his life - working a job he loved, making mixtapes for his sweetheart - when the communist Somali regime perp-walked him out of his own home, and sentenced him to a lifetime of solitary confinement.  With only concrete walls and cockroaches to keep him company, Mohammed felt miserable, alone, despondent.  But then one day, eight months into his sentence, he heard a whisper, a whisper that would open up a portal to - of all places and times - 19th century Russia, and that would teach him how to live and love again.
