NASA's TRMM Satellite Passed over Tropical Depression 26W

Caption: NASA's TRMM satellite passed over Tropical Depression 26W on Nov. 26 at 0526 UTC. The data showed that the depression's low-level center was large, and it had some fragmented convective bands of thunderstorms wrapping around it that contained heavy rain (in red), falling at 2 inches/50 mm per hour. TRMM data also revealed tall convective towering thunderstorms about 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) high.
