Join us THIS MORNING, April 27 at 10 a.m. ET/ 9 a.m CT/ 7 a.m. PT for a Science "Ask Us Anything" Chat with 4 NOAA scientists: "Tornado! Talk Severe Weather Research & Prediction with NOAA" --> Spring has arrived -- and with it, efforts to study and learn to better predict severe weather like tornadoes. Severe weather touches every U.S. state. , severe thunderstorms, hail, strong winds and floods are real threats to lives and property. NOAA's Hazardous Weather Testbed and VORTEX-SE study are designed to learn more about storms, helping improve our prediction abilities and bring you better forecasts. * This live event is being hosted by the and the NOAA National Severe Storms Laboratory.

Happy Friday to all: Here's our -eve 'Moment of Zen': This video was taken by Lt. Nick Morgan, operations officer on NOAA Ship Ferdinand R. Hassler in September 2016. Dolphins caught up to the ship and swam alongside: “This was probably about 40 nautical miles off of Cape Fear, North Carolina ... They swam with us for just about 24 hours. The bulbous object is the bulbous bow of the ship.” – Lt. Morgan

NOAA's Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary is embarking on a research project to identify hidden shipwrecks within the sanctuary! From April through August, Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary will lead four different teams using advanced technologies to push the boundaries of underwater archaeological survey and seek yet-to-be-discovered shipwrecks within the sanctuary. > Learn more at (In this photo, a NOAA diver swims over the shipwreck site of the wooden two-masted schooner Portland within Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary.

Tornadoes, some of the most violent storms on the planet, kill more people in the southeastern United States than anywhere else in the country. This month, NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory kicked off the second year of VORTEX-SE, a research program designed to understand how environmental factors and terrain in the southeastern U.S. affect tornadoes in that region. VORTEX-SE, shorthand for Verification of the Origins of Rotation in Tornadoes EXperiment-Southeast, will also look at how people learn of the threats posed by these storms and how they respond to protect their lives and property. This study, which runs March 8 through May 8, brings together 40 physical and social science researchers from 20 research organizations. Scientists will deploy NOAA’s P-3 aircraft, 13 vehicles, five mobile radars, one fixed radar and other instruments in northern Alabama.

That's why this spring, NOAA scientists and partners are deploying instruments near , , as part of the VORTEX-SE research project.

On this St. Patrick's Day are you wearing green? This Taylor’s hare (Phyllaplysia taylori) does every day — and for good reason. Its distinctive green color and brown-black markings perfectly camouflage it from hungry predators in the eelgrass beds where it lives and grazes on algae. Also known as the green or eel grass sea hare, it can be found on the western coast of North America, from Nanaimo, British Columbia, to San Diego, California. This photo was taken at the Greater National Marine Sanctuary on Feb. 10, 2017 (Photo by Jennifer Stock/NOAA).

NOAA's newest geostationary , , captured this imagery of the winter that freezing rain and snow over a large portion of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern today, March 14, 2017. This imagery was created with the Advanced Baseline Imager's Band 2, or red-visible band, which capitalizes on the imager's enhanced resolution to offer meteorologists a closer, more detailed look at the structure of the and the near-storm environment. Note the formation of the low-level circulation just off the coast of Delaware, the shadows cast by the high clouds onto the lower clouds, and the wave features atop the cloud bands moving from the southwest to the northeast. *To see more imagery and animations from GOES-16, visit our image gallery at Note: GOES-16 data are currently experimental and undergoing testing and should not be used operationally.

Detecting and predicting lightning just got a lot easier. The first images from a new instrument onboard NOAA’s GOES-16 satellite are offering NOAA National Weather Service ( ) forecasters richer information about lightning that will help them alert the public to dangerous weather. The first lightning detector in a geostationary orbit, the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM), is transmitting data never before available to forecasters. Find out more at This GLM animation from and reveals lightning in clouds from a severe weather system that impacted on February 14, 2017, and also triggered several tornado reports.

Here comes the suns: These images of the sun were captured at the same time on January 29, 2017, by 's Solar Ultraviolet Imager (SUVI), a telescope that monitors the sun in ultraviolet wavelengths. As it does so, SUVI can compile full-disk solar images around the clock that scientists can use to enhance their forecasts of space weather. The SUVI offers six wavelength channels that allow for the observation of a range of solar phenomena. Learn more and download images from at s weather
