Hurricane Michael in Gulf of Mexico | NOAA

Oct. 9, 2018: Hurricane Michael, seen here by NOAA's GOES East weather satellite, is strengthening as it moves over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico. The center of the Category 2 storm is expected to move inland over the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday, October 10, 2018. Maximum sustained winds: 85 knots; 100 mph

GeoColor is a multispectral product composed of True Color (using a simulated green component) during the daytime, and an Infrared product that uses bands 7 and 13 at night. During the day, the imagery looks approximately as it would appear when viewed with human eyes from space.

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