This week’s image was taken this evening over the south Pacific
This image shows a few, small low pressure circulations over the open ocean. I think what I found the most interesting about this image is that the upper-level winds were providing some ventilation for the heaviest circulation, the center closest to New Zealand. There is a “smudge” pointing towards the east and venting a few of the convective cells in the circulation. Also notice that the low is spinning the opposite direction (clockwise) as compared to the United States (counter clockwise), as this one is in the southern hemisphere.
Thank you for reading this post!
