The first tropical storm of the Eastern Pacific Ocean season was already losing steam when the Suomi NPP satellite passed overhead the day it formed. By the next day, May 11, Tropical Storm Adrian weakened to a remnant low pressure area. After Tropical Storm Adrian reached tropical storm stage on May 10 the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite provided a visible-light image of the storm. The VIIRS imagery showed a concentration of strong thunderstorms around the low-level circulation center. The center of Adrian was in the Gulf of Tehuantepec, off-shore from southwestern Mexico By 5 a.m. EDT on May 11, Adrian had weakened to a depression. At that time the depression was located about 385 miles (615 km) south-southeast of Salina Cruz Mexico. Five hours later, NOAA's National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued the final advisory on Adrian as the storm weakened even further into a remnant low pressure area. At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), NHC noted that the center of Post-Tropical Cyclone Adrian was located near latitude 11.3 North and longitude 93.8 West. The post-tropical cyclone was moving toward the northwest near 7 mph (11 kph) and a gradual turn toward the west-northwest is expected over the next 48 hours. Maximum sustained winds dropped to near 30 mph (45 kph) with higher gusts. Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1008 millibars. NHC forecaster Richard Pasch noted in a discussion that the "Adrian consists of a rather insignificant-looking swirl of low clouds with just a few isolated showers. The system has been devoid of significant deep convection since yesterday afternoon, so it is being declared a remnant low." Thus ends the life of the first tropical storm of the Eastern Pacific Ocean hurricane season, just one day after it formed.

The first tropical storm in the Eastern Pacific Ocean has formed west of Costa Rica as NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP Satellite passed overhead. Tropical Storm Adrian's formation has already made a mark in hurricane history. Although Eastern Pacific hurricane season doesn't start officially until May 15, it's just a marker. We've already seen the first tropical storm in the Atlantic Ocean form in early May. In the Eastern Pacific Ocean, that's unusual. The first Eastern Pacific Ocean tropical cyclone formed on Tuesday, May 9 around 4 p.m. EDT when the National Hurricane Center designated Tropical Depression 1E at about 335 miles (540 km) south-southwest of San Salvador, El Salvador Forecaster Stewart of NOAA's National Hurricane Center noted that when the depression strengthened into the first tropical storm of the season, it became the earliest tropical storm to ever form during the satellite era. On May 9 at 19:12 UTC 3:12 p.m. EDT) the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard the NASA-NOAA Suomi NPP satellite captured a visible light image of Tropical Depression 1E off the western coast of Central America. Strong thunderstorms appeared tightly wrapped around the center of circulation and in a thick band wrapping into the center from the north. At 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC) on May 10 the center of Tropical Storm Adrian was located near latitude 10.0 north and longitude 92.7 west. That's about 460 miles (740 km) south-southeast of Salina Cruz, Mexico. Maximum sustained winds were near 45 mph (75 kph) with higher gusts, and the National Hurricane Center noted that some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours. The estimated minimum central pressure is 1004 millibars. Adrian was moving toward the northwest near 7 mph (11 kph), and this general motion is expected during the next couple of days. Adrian is moving over warm waters and the shear is low, gradual strengthening is still forecast. Adrian is expected to move west-northwest and turn to the north where it is forecast to approach the Gulf of Tehuantepec after 5 days.


NEW ORLEANS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Travelers Institute, the public policy division of The Travelers Companies, Inc. (NYSE: TRV), will host its seventh annual “Kicking Off Hurricane Preparedness Season” symposium. The event will offer recommendations to help families and businesses get ready for the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season, which officially begins June 1. SBP, a national disaster recovery organization, and the New Orleans chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), will co-host the symposium. “Hurricanes and other severe weather can have a long-term impact on communities,” said Joan Woodward, President of the Travelers Institute and Executive Vice President of Public Policy at Travelers. “Properly preparing for storm season is critical to keeping your family safe, protecting your property and maintaining business operations.” During the symposium, the Lowlander Center, a Louisiana-based nonprofit organization that provides education, research and advocacy for the state’s coastal communities, will receive the Travelers Excellence in Community Resilience Award. The $100,000 grant is presented annually by the Travelers Institute and the Travelers Foundation to recognize organizations that are showing leadership in the field of community resiliency. Keynote speaker Brian Zachry, a storm surge specialist at the National Hurricane Center, will highlight changes the organization is making to better serve communities and its partners. “Beginning with the 2017 hurricane season, the National Weather Service will issue storm surge watches and warnings to highlight areas along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts of the continental United States that have a significant risk of life-threatening inundation from a tropical cyclone,” said Zachry. “This will advance our ability to communicate the storm surge hazard, which is often the greatest threat to life and property.” Zachry will participate in a panel discussion moderated by Woodward and will be joined by Shirley Laska, Co-Founder of the Lowlander Center; Tina Meilleur, Founder and CEO of Design Your Success, and incoming president of NAWBO New Orleans; and Zack Rosenburg, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of SBP.
