TROPICAL CYCLONE 01B (FANI) WARNING NR 027 01 ACTIVE TROPICAL CYCLONE IN NORTHIO MAX SUSTAINED WINDS BASED ON ONE-MINUTE AVERAGE WIND RADII VALID OVER OPEN WATER ONLY --- WARNING POSITION: 031200Z --- NEAR 21.3N 86.2E MOVEMENT PAST SIX HOURS - 020 DEGREES AT 12 KTS POSITION ACCURATE TO WITHIN 020 NM POSITION BASED ON CENTER LOCATED BY SATELLITE PRESENT WIND DISTRIBUTION: MAX SUSTAINED WINDS - 070 KT, GUSTS 085 KT WIND RADII VALID OVER OPEN WATER ONLY DISSIPATING AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER LAND RADIUS OF 064 KT WINDS - 035 NM NORTHEAST QUADRANT 040 NM SOUTHEAST QUADRANT 030 NM SOUTHWEST QUADRANT 000 NM NORTHWEST QUADRANT RADIUS OF 050 KT WINDS - 070 NM NORTHEAST QUADRANT 075 NM SOUTHEAST QUADRANT 060 NM SOUTHWEST QUADRANT 040 NM NORTHWEST QUADRANT RADIUS OF 034 KT WINDS - 125 NM NORTHEAST QUADRANT 140 NM SOUTHEAST QUADRANT 115 NM SOUTHWEST QUADRANT 085 NM NORTHWEST QUADRANT REPEAT POSIT: 21.3N 86.2E --- FORECASTS: 12 HRS, VALID AT: 040000Z --- 23.2N 87.6E MAX SUSTAINED WINDS - 040 KT, GUSTS 050 KT WIND RADII VALID OVER OPEN WATER ONLY DISSIPATING AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER LAND VECTOR TO 24 HR POSIT: 045 DEG/ 14 KTS --- 24 HRS, VALID AT: 041200Z --- 25.2N 89.7E MAX SUSTAINED WINDS - 030 KT, GUSTS 040 KT WIND RADII VALID OVER OPEN WATER ONLY DISSIPATED AS A SIGNIFICANT TROPICAL CYCLONE OVER LAND --- REMARKS: 031500Z POSITION NEAR 21.8N 86.6E. TROPICAL CYCLONE (TC) 01B (FANI), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 145 NM WEST- SOUTHWEST OF KOLKATA, INDIA, HAS TRACKED NORTH-NORTHEASTWARD AT 12 KNOTS (KTS) OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. THERE IS FAIR CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION BASED ON ANIMATED ENHANCED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY WHICH SHOWS WARMING CLOUD TOPS AND SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED DEEP CONVECTION. THE INITIAL INTENSITY OF 70 KTS IS BASED ON THE DEGRADED CLOUD STRUCTURE. THE SYSTEM IS WEAKENING DUE TO LAND INTERACTION DESPITE OTHERWISE FAVORABLE ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS (5- 10 KTS OF VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND GOOD RADIAL OUTFLOW). TC 01B IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE GENERALLY TRACKING NORTHEASTWARD ALONG THE PERIPHERY OF A SUBTROPICAL RIDGE TO THE SOUTHEAST UNTIL DISSIPATING BY TAU 24. NUMERICAL MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN EXCELLENT AGREEMENT, LENDING TO HIGH CONFIDENCE IN THE JTWC TRACK FORECAST. THIS IS THE FINAL WARNING ON THIS SYSTEM BY THE JOINT TYPHOON WRNCEN PEARL HARBOR HI. THE SYSTEM WILL BE CLOSELY MONITORED FOR SIGNS OF REGENERATION.// NNNN
Tuesday Home school fun is a science project : April Rain as we celebrate Earth Day this week:
How much rain is really falling when you watch a heavy shower through the window of your home? How about on other days when it’s just a light shower?
Find out by making your own rain gauge, recording the results and studying your findings.
Homemade Rain Gage: Earth Science Project to make with your ki
- Straight-sided glass or plastic container, with a diameter of about two inches or less (such as an olive jar or mason jar)
- Coat hanger or wire bent to make a holding rack
- Measuring spoons: 1 teaspoon and 1/4 teaspoon
- Hammer and nails to secure the rack
- Felt tip marker for marking.
- Rain gauges measure the amount of rainfall in cubic inches. So your first task is to make a scale for your container that shows how…

The Apache Software Foundation has released Apache Tomcat versions 7.0.94 and 8.5.40 to address a vulnerability. A remote attacker could exploit this vulnerability to take control of an affected system.
The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages users and administrators to review the Apache security advisory for CVE-2019-0232 and apply the necessary updates.
Reporter Javier Mayorca wrote on Twitter on Saturday that the first plane carried Vasily Tonkoshkurov, chief of staff of the ground forces, adding the second was a cargo plane carrying 35 tonnes of material.
An Ilyushin IL-62 passenger jet and an Antonov AN-124 military cargo plane left for Caracas on Friday from Russian military airport Chkalovsky. The cargo plane left Caracas on Sunday afternoon.
The flights carried officials who arrived to “exchange consultations,” wrote Russian government-owned news agency Sputnik, which quoted an unnamed source at the Russian embassy.
A Reuters witness saw what appeared to be the passenger jet at the Maiquetia airport on Sunday.

CLEVELAND VOLCANO (VNUM #311240)
52°49’20” N 169°56’42” W, Summit Elevation 5676 ft (1730 m)
Current Volcano Alert Level: WATCH
Current Aviation Color Code: ORANGE
Weakly elevated surface temperatures observed in mostly cloudy satellite data over the past 24 hours. No activity was detected in regional seismic or infrasound data.
The most recent explosion of Cleveland Volcano occurred on January 9, 2019. Cleveland explosions are normally short duration and only present a hazard to aviation in the immediate vicinity of the volcano. Larger explosions that present a more widespread hazard to aviation are possible, but are less likely and occur less frequently.
Local seismic and infrasound data at Cleveland have been unavailable since January 26, 2019. This restricts AVO’s ability to rapidly detect an explosive eruption. AVO is able to monitor the volcano for signs of eruptive activity with satellite, lightning, and regional seismic and infrasound data.
- Cruise ship left stranded as Tropical Cyclone Oma causes chaos out at sea
- The weather system continues to whip up ferocious winds and huge waves
- It’s believed Oma will get within 500km of south-east Queensland by Saturday
- The weather system was downgraded to a Category One on Friday morning
- Conditions at sea remain concerning, with cruise liners having to change plans
- Dubbed ‘Omageddon’, the system remains highly unpredictable, experts say
