Live weather images are updated every 10 minutes from NOAA GOES and JMA Himawari-8 geostationary satellites.
EUMETSAT Meteosat images are updated every 15 minutes.
Blue clouds at night represent low-lying clouds and fog.
Tropical cyclone tracks and forecast maps are created using the most recent data from NHC, JTWC, NRL and IBTrACS.
Animated surface wind speed forecast maps are generated using the NOAA-NWS GFS model.
Rain radar maps are provided by RainViewer.
Coverage is limited to areas with radar, and may show anomalies.
Heat maps show the locations of wildfires and sources of high temperature using data from FIRMS and InciWeb.
Imagery at higher zoom levels is provided by Microsoft.
HD weather satellite images are updated twice a day from NASA-NOAA polar-orbiting satellites Suomi-NPP, and MODIS Aqua and Terra, using services from GIBS, part of EOSDIS.
Imagery is captured at approximately 10:30 local time for “AM” and 13:30 local time for “PM”.
