High resolution Atlantic Hurricane Images
Welcome to Remote Imaging in West Sussex.
My name is Mike Jupp and this page is about my interest in Atlantic Hurricanes.
It will contain links to images that I have produced with data from the NOAA CLASS.
and METOP Data via EUMETCAST.
Images are made with David Taylor's HRPTReader.
what is a Hurricane
The term "hurricane" is a name for a strong "tropical cyclone" situated in the N. Atlantic Ocean. A tropical cyclone is the generic term for a non-frontal synoptic scale low-pressure system over tropical or sub-tropical waters with organized convection and definite cyclonic surface wind circulation.
"Major hurricane" is a term utilized by the National Hurricane Center for hurricanes that reach maximum sustained 1-minute surface winds of at least 50 m/s (96 kt, 111 mph). This is the equivalent of category 3, 4 and 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale.
1 74-95mph >980mb Surge 3-5ft
2 96-110mph 979-965mb Surge 6-8ft
3 111-130mph 964-945mb Surge 9-12ft
4 131-155mph 944-920mb Surge 13-18ft
5 156+mph <920mb Surge 19+ft

my weather station
Now have my Davis Vantage Pro Plus weather station hooked up to the internet.
It is now set to refresh the website data every 15 minutes and should be online 24/7.
Please do not rely on the weather information for scientific purposes,
although it should give a fair indication of the weather here in Steyning.
The station has all the usual sensors including sunshine and UV capability.
The station also produces NOAA daily, weekly, monthly and annual reports.
Weather station time is set to GMT/UTC so will differ local UK summer time by -1 hour.
