Hybrid Visible Convective Comparison

On July 11th at 2115 UTC the hybrid visible captured a stunning comparison of monsoon convective activity over New Mexico.  Note the extraordinary detail of the cloud structures over western NM compared to the more smoothed look to the convective clouds over eastern NM.   The convective development over western NM in this image follows our topographical features very well as expected during the early to mid afternoon period.

  1. Great example of how the higher reslution imagery on the future GOES-R satellite will help weather forecasters.
    Thanks for the post.
