New satellite map enhancements

@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....

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
This is an amazing site.. Your new beta is beautiful. Thanks for all your efforts.

@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.
@Vandyj very good.
Thank you all for your feedback. In the final release, the units will be in Celsius.
Infra+ continental US view keeps crashing in Chrome.
... and the picker will indicate temperatures even higher than 240 K (-33 C) ?
In wx. radar you have not a dBZ limit (that's good!).
Why you use the 240 K limit in the picker for infra satellite images?
