Hurricanes Irma and Jose in the Atlantic Ocean

GOES-16 captured this geocolor image of Hurricanes Irma and Jose in the Atlantic Ocean on the evening of September 9, 2017.

According to the National Hurricane Center, Irma is expected to bring life-threatening wind and storm surge to the Florida Keys and southwestern Florida as an extremely dangerous major hurricane tonight, September 9, 2017, through Sunday 9/10.

Hurricane Jose is under a narrow zone of weak shear that appears to be moving westward in tandem with the hurricane. This should allow Jose to maintain its intensity in the short term, with gradual weakening expected thereafter.

Created by our partners at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, the experimental geocolor imagery enhancement shown here displays geostationary satellite data in different ways depending on whether it is day or night.
