New satellite map enhancements

Hello! I really like the new look for the satellite map but the animation seems to play less smoothly than the previous version. Thanks!

Very nice job! I was going to say keep the old color scale, but the new one is much easier on the eyes. The new animation seems to be loading less frames than the old one. Overall performance and quality is ok though.
The yellowish tone for low clouds/fog and also snow on the visible satellite still looks awkward to me. If a user is looking to distinguish the different levels of clouds, that's what the infrared is for.
From a retired Navy meteorologist, looks good so far.

This is an excellent upgrade, Tom! Very useful in areas with often out-of-business radar networks like Indonesia.
I love it. Looks beautiful. If you could add the "weather radar" doppler at about 15% visibility as an over/under lay... Just curious. I think both are valuable tools for the armchair weather forecaster like myself. I do a lot of traveling on my motorcycle. Not afraid of rain, but if I can plan...

@johnckealy I guess "infra+" means infrared+rain. It seems to be combined with radar detection data, since if you check "Radar" view on some rainy region you should see the matching of both views regarding rain clutter.
For me this is the best enhancement from Windy.com since my country Morocco was and still (for some dumb/incompetence reason) lacking Radar coverage for public use. Radar is the most vital feature in case of bad weather especially when you board the Atlantic! :)

Great layers, just looking over Cyclone Bulbul Warning
northwest and adjoining westcentral Bay of Bengal; from the start it was Typhoon Matmo....
![alt text]( image url)
Question is why it has different still old name Matmo on the Hurricane tracker...as it is already Bulbul...maybe to mention both...

Stunning and realistic colors., More level of details, New color scale and Data optimization. I Love Animated Maps as they allow me to plan my Day. There may be Gaps in Bad weather at times when it's best to get out shopping, errands, etc. Very Handy Maps! Thank-You Paul Forster

When looking at the visible layer, at a close zoom the terrain layer shows through the satellite layer and distorts the imagery. Is there a way to adjust the transparancy?
great jobs. you are the best!

@easy_rhino Hi, unfortunately infra+ does not mean infrared+rain. It just means that there is colorisation of the cold cloud tops. It can help to observe development of storm clouds.

Cyclone named "Bulbul" by India Meteo. Dept.
is the same with the one named "Matmo" by the Joint Typhoon Warning Center

@TomSlavkovsky – Tom, seems there's already some confusion about
INFRA+, even on this thread; labelling it as Cloud Top Temperature (or linking to a description of what it is) seems important to me. Clarity has always been Windy's strength.

Thank you all for your feedback. In the final release, the units will be in Celsius.
