Tropical Storm Nate Ashore over Nicaragua

GOES-16 captured this geocolor image of Tropical Storm Nate on October 5, 2017. The center of Nate is inland over northeastern Nicaragua, and little change in strength is expected until the center moves over the northwestern Caribbean Sea. After that, a combination of warm sea surface temperatures and light shear should allow for at least steady strengthening.

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. Please note: GOES-16 data are currently experimental and under going testing and should not be used operationally.
