Finger Lakes Weather regional satellite imagery

About this image

This is a GeoColor Satellite Image taken from the GOES-East satellite.

GeoColor is comprised of True Color during the daylight hours and infrared imagery during the night. During the day, the image appears approximately as the Earth would if viewed from space with the naked eye. At night, clouds are shaded either white or blue. White clouds are high in the atmosphere made of ice. Blue clouds are lower in the atmosphere and comprised of water droplets. These are overlayed on a static image of city lights.

Geocolor was developed at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) and STAR’s Regional and Mesoscale Meteorology Branch (RAMMB).

Data is derived from the Star NESDIS NOAA website. Since this data originates from outside of, Finger Lakes Weather has no control on its availability, style, or reliability.

The image should update every 15 minutes. If the image timestamp in the lower left corner is older than 15 minutes, attempt to clear your cache by pressing cntl-F5 (PC) or cmd-R (mac). If this does not work, the data source may be unavailable.
