GOES-8 6.7 Micron IR (Water Vapor)
(this 17-image Java animation sequence will take a minute or two to load...)
This loop of 15-minute GOES-8 water vapor imagery shows the progression of the tornadic convection that moved rapidly east-northeastward across central Florida. Note the pronounced warming/drying that occurred in the wake of the convection.
A similar Java animation of 10.7 micron IR images is also available.
