Wonder what Nida (2009) would have been for speed/pressure with recon. ADT gradient peaked at 105.7* C (yikes)

I’m guessing 165-175 kt and <890 mbar. Nida’s resemblance to Haiyan is uncanny — both have full CDG rings in Dvorak imagery, very warm eyes, and a large band of <-85 C convection on their left sides.

Current ADT would likely give Haiyan an 8.0 but probably only in raw, given how the ADT works on WPAC :P

Haiyan only reached 155 kt on ADT? Talk about ultra conservative.

Based on Yutu’s ADT numbers, I wouldn’t be surprised if it peaked at 160-165 kt. I don’t know why the JTWC lowered it to 150 kt in post-season analysis when it was much more impressive than Jebi, which was upgraded to 155 kt.

Current ADT would likely give Haiyan an 8.0 but probably only in raw, given how the ADT works on WPAC :P


Haiyan only reached 155 kt on ADT? Talk about ultra conservative.

Based on Yutu’s ADT numbers, I wouldn’t be surprised if it peaked at 160-165 kt. I don’t know why the JTWC lowered it to 150 kt in post-season analysis when it was much more impressive than Jebi, which was upgraded to 155 kt.

ADT version 8.1.5 is was consistently 0.5 T below the 8.1.4 version (archived by SSD) at the high intensities, not sure the reason why. Using ADT 8.1.4, Haiyan was the first case of a TC breaking the 8.0 ceiling with the raw numbers. If anything deserves >T8.0 from IR estimates, a clear >20ºC eye embedded over 1.5º (90 nm) in CDG gets my nod.

Image

Also, interesting to note that a temperature gradient in the eye due to parallax can be observed in Haiyan's case, which is actually rather impressive to see on geostationary imagery of this resolution. The eye is uniformly WMG, but the warmest portion of the eye seen by MTSAT is actually the southeastern portion. That's due to MTSAT viewing Haiyan from the southeast since the satellite was at approximately 0ºN/S, 145ºE. Even though MTSAT had a relatively good angle on Haiyan (VZA ~20º), the height of the eyewall combined with the angle actually means some of the eye was obscured by the SE eyewall (CIMSS the problem of parallax).

*Late Edit: I actually managed to dig up the ADT version 8.1.4 vs 8.1.5 graph for Haiyan. At the high intensities, 8.1.5 = 8.1.4 - 0.5T.

Might not be "clear" and "technical" like many of these posts. This one seems more towards being aesthetic, warming and somewhat "nostalgic" to look at based on the fuzziness, dreamy color scheme and graininess.

Which storm is this by the way? I can't seem to put a date or name on it. Seems like an East Coast or Bermuda storm to me. They seem to be similar but I forgot which one it is.

Could the top one be Bertha, Edouard or Fran 1996? Quality of the photo seems to be around that time methinks.

I think that’s Humberto ‘19

Sure? Yeah I reverse searched the top one and from where I'm from it returned with Bertha 1996 lol.
All of them Humberto or a few?

Never mind. Reverse searched the middle one and it came up with "Hurricane Humberto" as the search results. Not sure about the other two though, they failed. Bottom and middle seem to be the same storm. Only once the top one returned with "Hurricane Bertha" or something like that.

Another aesthetic photo of a small, cute-looking, rounded and well-defined storm, unknown name and date.
Image

It looks a bit like Dora (1999) but I could be absolutely wrong. Seems annular? Definitely has an EPac look to it but am not sure exactly which storm. They're just aesthetic photos of storms I found.

Which storm is it? Sorry, I'm not too well today, my mind is shutting down...

That would be Hurricane Edouard from 1996. The first image is from August 26, 1996, and the second from August 25, 1996. Both are of the system at Category 4 hurricane intensity.

How did you find that out? :O
I really mistook Edouard for an EPac system, actually looks the part! Tiny and rounded, like many annular EPac systems.

Also what's the other one I posted? The grainy looking photos before Edouard? Including the night one? They don't seem to have any names attached to them especially the night one.

I'm not sure why old-time grainy effects were added, but as aspen posted earlier, those other images are Hurricane Humberto from this year from September 16 and September 17. (Here are reference images: 1 2).

The South Pacific isn't typically very active in terms of sheer number of storms, but the very warm waters can provide an environment for some very strong systems. Here's Ului from March 2010:

I got the images from tumblr, I think? I believe there's a thing going on right now about making modern photos "look older"... I've seen many people try to do this trick with filters and all. Could you actually tell that the photos of Humberto were recent photos though and not taken in the 1980s as they look like? Hahaha
What do you think of the old time grainy effects on hurricane pictures?
