14 July 2000 | GOES-10 Visible/IR Image Fader

Hold the left mouse button down as you drag the slider above the image (or use the arrow buttons) to fade between the GOES-10 visible channel and the corresponding GOES-10 10.7 micrometer IR image at 00:46 UTC on 15 July (6:46 PM MDT on 14 July). To zoom, click on the "Zoom" button, and then click the "hand" cursor on the image where you want to center the zoom.

Note the appearance of shadowing and texture on the visible image, indicating regions of overshooting thunderstorm tops. On the IR image, an "Enhanced-V" cloud top signature is evident, which often indicates convection that is producing or soon will produce severe weather.
