Tropics

Tropical Storm Isaias is closing in on the US coastline. The storm is expected to make landfall near the North/South Carolina border later tonight. The storm could reach minimal hurricane strength over the warm waters of the Gulf Stream Current before making landfall. Heavy rainfall and gusty winds are the main threats. The storm will then hug the East Coast as we go through the week.

Another area of low pressure may become Tropical Storm Josephine in the coming days. That storm is currently expected to steer clear of the US.

Weather Shot

Satellites captured this phenomenal view of Nishinoshima erupting in the Pacific Ocean late last week. The volcano is located about 600 miles southeast of Tokyo, Japan. Pretty neat, right?

NASA Nerdology

What a relief it must have been for Behnken and Hurley when that hatch door was opened after splashdown and they knew they were safely home. I’d definitely call this a “thumbs up” kinda moment.
