Daily Eye Wonder June 2012

A collection of some beautiful, strange, interesting, whatever we find, weather, environment of just plain fascinating pictures that might let you wonder.

State of the Sea at the Start of Hurricane Season

Hurricane season starts June 1st. Sea surface temperatures are in the low 80s where you see the yellow and orange colors. The blue shading is where temperatures are below 80 degrees. Tropical development is best when SST are 80° or higher, but it's not out of the question for development to occur with lower temperatures. SST are near average to start the 2012 Hurricane Season.
