A 3-D NASA Flyover of Tropical Storm Nadine

Loading video...

Caption: On Oct. 2 at 11:43 p.m. EDT, heavy convective thunderstorms were found in Nadine's northeastern quadrant by NASA's Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) satellite. Wind shear had separated the center of circulation from this convective activity so, TRMM found virtually no rainfall near Nadine's center. TRMM's Precipitation Radar data reveal in this 3-D image that Nadine's vertical structure had changed significantly by wind shear since yesterday (Oct. 2, 2012). Powerful convective storms northeast of the center of circulation were still pushing to heights of about 12km (~7.5 miles).
