Nature's Show: A Visible image of Hurricane Bonnie, 08/23/98 @9:45am, 190 miles east of San Salvador Island, Bahamas. Bonnie was stationary and paused to recurve to the north--her central pressure had dropped to 957 mb, 28.29 inches. Yesterday at this time her central pressure was ~980mb, a remarkble drop! Outflow seems a little restricted on the west side of the storm.
I separated this site from the main weather site to make the info more accessible for Tropical Weather Lovers and hasten download time. It includes My Favorite Sources of Tropical Information, Reconnaissance Information, Buoy Data, Satellite Movies , Single Frame Satellite Imagery, Spectacular Imagery from Previous Years , Computer Models , Radar , Predictive Forecasting Tools, the Saffir-Simpson Scale of Hurricane Intensity and a Temperature and Pressure Conversion Chart. Thanks to all of the wonderful organizations and resources on the Net!
