 Infrared Satellite
 
          
      
About this map:

Satellite images are measurements of the Earth taken from high in space by governmental satellites, and used to show clouds and cloud movement. 
The term "Infrared" means that the satellite is detecting the temperature of the clouds.
Infrared satellite senses radiant energy given off by the clouds. Warmer (lower in the atmosphere) clouds give off more energy than cold (higher) clouds.
Use this map, (during night time hours), to help predict when there is a strong probability of adverse weather heading your way.
