Novice question about satellite imagery
I'm a novice user and just getting the hang of Windy. I want to make the most of it and have figured out most of it by just using it but there are still things that I couldn't find an answer to in the forums here, or in the app itself in the information buttons.
When I click satellite, why are some clouds yellow and some white? There is surprisingly little info about this on the web.
And what do the 'K' numbers in bottom right represent? (There is no 'i' button for this).
And what is 'Infra' 'Infra +' and 'Visible' on the bottom left?
Thank you in advance.
Brownish clouds are lower clouds, and blueish are those at higher level. This is not true colour, it is post-processed by Windy.
K is the brightness temperature of cloud tops in Kelvin.
INFRA is the image in infrared spectrum, INFRA + is the same but colorised.
