TRS Anatomy MET
A TRSTRS —Tropical Revolving Storm can be thought of as a donut. In the centre (the hole) the air is descending, hence warming and moving further from its dew point. Hence, there are no clouds, and this eye is readily observable via satellites. Surrounding the eye, however, is the destructive area of the TRSTRS —Tropical Revolving Storm - the ascending, spiralling air given extreme winds and thunderstorm conditions, with clouds extending all the way up to a stable layer - in this case, usually the tropopause. The most destructive winds are in the wall of cloud immediately surrounding the eye.
