Understanding Rapid Intensification

While meteorologists are getting better and better at projecting storms and helping us prepare for it’s landfall, it isn’t a perfect science. Rapid intensification is a meteorological condition that occurs when a tropical cyclone intensifies dramatically in a short period of time. Typically defined as an increase of 35 MPH or more in a 24hr time span. In recent years, we have seen this far more often than the past. Hurricane Michael’s wind-speeds increased by over 45 MPH in the final 24hrs prior to landfall. Hurricane Maria went from a Category 1 to a Category 5 in less than 18 hours.
