Finally catching up on this series - here is the third installment which by now is more of a POST 2015/2016 El Nino season - GOES weather satellite infra-red still image time lapse sequences. While the southwestern U.S. is still getting baked, after a short spell in the 110+ degree range the high temperatures have let up quite a bit. Fortunately we DID get a decent share of the excess rain from up north, and several of our local reservoirs are looking nearly full for a change.
Over 2000 still images were collected every 20 minutes for 2-months to make this video. Time lapse sequence made from original Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) still images, courtesy of NOAA.GOV (public domain data). This view shows the northern hemisphere (United States) in an infra-red wavelength that is sensitive to water vapor in Earth's atmosphere (light areas are moist and dark is more dry) which is good for showing where storms/rain may be more likely as well as being visible in both day and night.
The term "El Nino" refers to an event of warmer than normal pacific ocean surface temperatures along the equator and west coast of the Americas, which can't be seen in these images. However, the El Nino event is believed change and enhance storm patterns in the northeastern pacific, which may turn-up as more active than normal weather in the video.
