Hurricane Barbara

Bill's Blog

Hurricane Barbara was a tropical storm (+40 mph) from June 30 – July 6. It formed well east of Mexico and moved west. It grew up to Category 4 intensity with winds of 155 mph, then slowly dissipated to a weak depression before dissipating shortly before reaching the Hawaiian Islands. Here’s a final path of the depression east of Hawaii:

Here’s the last Public Advisory, Public Storm Discussion and current weather observations in Hawaii. Here’s the Funktop Satellite Loop of the storm…a Visible/IR loop…and Hawaii Regional Radar. Here’s a satellite pic. of Barbara at maximum intensity:

Hurricane Barbara at maximum intencity

The storm at this point had a well defined eye and classic banding. There are no radar images here because we don’t have tadars over the ocean this far from land.
