Amazing 1 minute GOES Imagery of Hurricane Igor
Posted by Dan Satterfield
Tip of the hat to my friend and fellow meteorologist T.J. Malone for this incredible view of the eye of Hurricane Igor.
Igor is packing 150 mph winds and almost a cat 5 storm. Igor will not affect the U.S. and it’s unlikely to hit Canada either. Bermuda residents should keep an eye on it (Pardon the pun).
The first few frames are the usual every 30 minutes but then the GOES is switched to rapid scan mode.
