Metop-C weather satellite...
is scheduled to launch in a few hours (7 November 2018 / 00:47 UTC).
Data from Metop satellites have high impact
on the accuracy of weather forecasting.
That's all very complex.
For live streaming from Guiana Space Center

Metop-C was successfully launched from the European Space Port in Kourou, French Guiana.
"...Metop-C provides vital observations for weather forecasts up to 10 days ahead ...
... carries nine instruments measuring mainly vertical profiles of temperature
and humidity, cloud properties, atmospheric composition,
sea surface temperature, wind at the ocean surface, sea ice parameters,
vegetation parameters and soil moisture.
... data has the highest positive impact on global numerical weather prediction,
in terms of reducing forecast errors one day ahead.
In addition, supports operational oceanography, marine meteorology,
air quality forecasting and climate monitoring ...".
