DTN Weather, December 28, 2017 Turbulence Forecasting Turbulence forecasting when not backed by years of research can leave aviation-related businesses vulnerable to operational issues. Although “shaking” in the wind may be the end result when businesses lack the most accurate turbulence forecasting, dealing with the repercussions of inadequate turbulence forecasting certainly leaves them abandoned to a bad situation – or twisting in the wind. What Is Harmattan. DTN Weather & new acquisition Wilkens Weather Technologies, February 2, 2018 It’s that time of year again when cold air from the mid-latitudes surges into the tropics.

The effect in Africa is a strong east to northeast wind from the Chad basin to Mauritania and northern Gabon called the Harmattan. Harmattan winds blow west to southwestward from the Sahara, with enough strength to carry desert sand and dust to the Atlantic Ocean. This occurs during the boreal winter as deep-layer troughs move across southern Europe and the Mediterranean, penetrating the Sahara. The preceding cold front often loses its identity over the desert due to intense surface heating and mixing. Harmattan winds become amplified as strong high pressure builds behind these troughs. Super Typhoon Wutip Sets February Records. DTN Weather, February 26, 2019 Super Typhoon Wutip Super Typhoon Wutip peaked as a Category Five storm on Monday morning, the first ever for the Northern Hemisphere in the month of February and the first February Super Typhoon since 1911.

Although sea-surface temperatures in the region were not particularly impressive (~81-82°F), Wutip’s rapid intensification is attributed to a period of nearly non-existent upper-level wind shear and a pair of impressive upper-level outflow channels.
