Tropical Storm Claudette
July 12, 2003
The above image of Tropical Storm Claudette was taken Thursday morning (July 10) from the GOES-East satellite, 22,000 miles (35,200 km) above the Equator. At the time the image was taken, Claudette was in the Caribbean Sea, south of Cuba, with sustained winds of 60 mph -- it was moving toward the Yucatan Peninsula. Note that Claudette doesn't yet have an organized eye.
