GOES-16 captured this geocolor image of the remnants of Hurricane Irma -- now a post-tropical cyclone -- over a large area of the mid-western United States on September 12, 2017.
According to the National Weather Service, Irma has become a Post-Tropical Cyclone and will slowly wind down on Tuesday and Wednesday. The associated region of low pressure will move northwesterly to southern Illinois by Wednesday (9/13) evening, producing rain over parts of the Southern Ohio Valley and Tennessee/Lower Mississippi Valleys eastward to parts of the Southeast/Southern Mid-Atlantic.
Created by our partners at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere, the experimental geocolor imagery enhancement displays geostationary satellite data in different ways depending on whether it is day or night. In daytime imagery, shown here, land and shallow-water features appear as they do in true-color imagery.
