Ocean Surface Winds Around Katia

Ocean surface wind vectors from Windsat around 1100 UTC on September 4, 2011.

You don’t need a picture to see that Katia is lurking out in the Atlantic. The dcean surface wind vectors derived from Windsat on the Coriolis satellite show the counterclockwise winds on the east side of the hurricane. The wind vectors are derived from the Naval Research Lab in Monterey using an enhanced retrieval method and made available to SPoRT for dissemination in AWIPS.
