Windy launches Satellite layer

@idefix37 Unfortunately not, the color is based on temperature. So from this imagery it is not possible to determine clouds altitude. Also it is not possible to distinguish between snow and low clouds. It could be possible with some cloud mask products. To sum it up: this is challenge for future ;-)
Thank you for your answer.

As a short note, this was a marriage made in heaven! Thank you again, Windy.com, for delivering an innovative package that can easily display multiple real-time and near real-time content! You are an amateur meteorologist's dream.

In INFRA+, cloud top temperature given in Kelvin scale (K).
240K - 273.15 = -33.15°C
200K - 273.15 = -73.15°C
Looks spectacular, Love it

It will be exrtemely helpfull if there will acces for the different satelite channels (just HRV or IR) and RGB composition of channels like NHC RGB Dust Or Fog-and-Low-Clouds (FLC) Products!

It's another great addition to the most impressive, most comprehensive and most beautiful weather app and website ever created. Incredible engineers and designers on this team!

Hoping this will be coming to the iOS app soon, not just the web app

I think, cloud top temperature scale must be visible only in conjunction with INFRA+.
It has no use with VIS nor INFRA.
A few hours ago we could observe images of Ubinas volcano eruption in Peru.
To find the volcano, type « volcan Ubinas » in the search bar. The plume can be seen if you select 12h, both in VISIBLE and INFRA+
It seems that there is a small gap between the plume and the volcano itself, about 7km.

The projection seems very off with California's coast line. It appears you guys managed to finally sink Los Angeles #GlobalWarming
Great information and site improvement. Congrats, and keep it up. !

The Satellite layer is amazing. But i think you should put the true time the sattelite image was taken. I've seen a time in a down bar but the time that is been shown there is not correct. For example in this image of Brazil the down bar says 18:05 but this image was actually taken by the sattelite at 17:40.
