AWIPS images of the 1-km resolution MODIS 0.65 µm visible channel and the MODIS 11.0 µm IR channel data (below) showed Tropical Storm Hermine at 17:16 UTC (12:16 pm local time). The IR image depicted widespread areas with cloud top brightness temperatures of -75 º C to -85º C (purple color enhancement) around both the center of the storm and also the intense convective rain bands to the east. Very heavy rainfall amounts of 10-13 inches resulted from in inland passage of Hermine.
