Weather Patterns We’re Watching
No big storms for the rest of the week. The quiet pattern will last into the middle of next week. The end of next week could lead to more storms. So enjoy the dry weather!
Over the course of 48 hours from Dec. 30, 2020, to Jan. 1, 2021, the Himawari-8 satellite, operated by the Japan Meteorological Agency, watched a powerful low-pressure system intensify and move across the northern Pacific Ocean toward Alaska. Winds were recorded at more than 100 mph and some wave estimates were possibly higher than 45 feet over the open water. This storm not only underwent bombogenesis, dropping nearly 60 mbar in 24 hours and 75 mbar in 36 hours, but also set a record for the lowest central pressure of an extratropical storm—921 mbar—on New Year’s Eve. In 2020, only two Atlantic hurricanes had lower pressure readings: Hurricane Eta and Iota. However, hurricanes gain strength from warm ocean waters rather than extreme temperature gradients in the mid-latitudes, which fuel these storm systems.
