Hurricanes Michael and Willa of 2018 were both storms that intensified rapidly, one in the Gulf of Mexico and the other in the Eastern Pacific Ocean. Hurricane Michael was one of strongest storms (peak winds of 155 mph) to make landfall in the continental United States, devastating the Florida panhandle. Here we focus on examining the sea surface temperature (SST) response associated with these hurricanes, specifically their cold wakes, using the NASA Multi-Scale Ultra-High Resolution (MUR) SST dataset (doi: 10.5067/GHGMR-4FJ04). Cold wakes are trails of cold subsurface water that have been brought to the surface as a result of wind-induced mixing and....
