Notes on GOES and Himawari

The GOES data and imagery is a great resource
It also is a thing of beauty.

This is an image from Jan 15.
The Columbia Basin and northern interior valleys of Washington are filled with fog.
Snow covers parts of southwest Washington and the northern Willamette Valley.

The other side of the globe is covered by equally spectacular images from the new Japanese Himawari-9 satellite.
The Himawari-9 images of the Pacific should help with understanding how the weather systems that impact Washington State evolve.
