The TRMM satellite had an early morning view of tropical storm Kong-Rey on August 27, 2013 at 2203 UTC (~6:03 AM local time). A precipitation analysis from TRMM’s Microwave Imager (TMI) and Precipitation Radar (PR) instruments is shown on the left above overlaid on an enhanced visible/infrared image from TRMM’s Visible and InfraRed Scanner (VIRS). This analysis shows that Kong-Rey contains a large area of heavy rainfall. Some storms within Kong-Rey were found by TRMM PR to be dropping rain at the extreme rate of over 156mm/hr (~6.14 inches). A 3-D view on the right above using TRMM PR data found that a few very intense storms near Kong-Rey’s center were reaching heights above 15km (~9.3 miles).
