As 2016 gets under way, the weather patterns seem a lot like 2015, with a little rain around the turn of the year, with a drier than usual January and especially February, which is normally our rainiest month. Once again we see that the high pressure area over the pacific has broken down towards the end of this video, allowing the jetstream to drop lower and hopefully direct another series of storms our way...
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.
