Infrared Imagery 


Satellites equipped with infrared sensors take images of clouds and Earth's surface. The Day 1, 2, and 3 links on this page give you infrared radiation (IR) satellite images taken at the same time as your maps.

Infrared radiation is an invisible form of radiation given off by all objects both day and night. These IR images show information about cloud top temperature. The darker colors indicate lower, warmer cloud tops. The brighter colors indicate higher, colder cloud tops. This information might help you make your forecasts.
