Astronauts aboard the International Space Station captured this photograph of Tropical Storm Halong as it moved across southern Japan on August 10.
- Genevieve (Eastern Pacific Ocean)
Cloud tops were warming and precipitation was waning in Tropical Depression Genevieve when NASA's Aqua satellite flew overhead.
- Bertha (Atlantic Ocean)
A visible satellite image from NOAA's GOES-East satellite shows that Post-Tropical Storm Bertha was merging with a frontal system in the North Atlantic Ocean.
- Nakri (Northwestern Pacific Ocean)
System 96W finally became Tropical Storm Nakri on August 2 as Suomi NPP passed overhead.
