Daily Satellite Analysis

Analysis is valid for 11Z on the 3rd of May 2012

Fig. 1.0 “Today’s latest Satellite Analysis looks pretty messed up as series of deep area of Low pressure accelerate towards Northern Hokkaido, running up the eastern Seaboard of Japan. The flooding rains have been widespread and reports have been coming in since last night that up to 500 mm of precipitation has already fallen in much of Central Japan. The Philippines tropics remain hot and dry, while convective thunderstorm activity has already brought in some welcome rains across Luzon this morning and the rest of Visayas and Mindanao will also be having continuous thunderstorm activity well into tomorrow as the heat and moisture combined, and a fresh weak Southwesterly flow from Sulu Sea have been bringing in some choppy seas and relatively cooler winds.
Take notice of a developing Low pressure system just to the West of Palawan, over to the Spratlys archipelago. We’ll continue to monitor the system in the next 12-24 hrs if it does intensify into a Tropical Depression.
Meantime, the ITCZ continues to kick up showers near the equator, where Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur for the most parts had its fair share of widespread flooding. Image Courtesy: MTSAT/EUMETSAT.”

  1. I find that using PowerPoint makes for smoother-looking graphics on the maps. It has drawing functions that allow for arcs and trough (dashed lines) indicators, as well as letters, arrows, triangles, semicircles and the like. 🙂

  2. I agree, plus powerpoint is a program everyone can get ahold of easily.

    I like it too, pretty simple to comprehend. Looked flashy enough than I previously thought. I’m good with the idea, Rob and Mike. =)
