An Interesting View of the Atlantic (and the storms)

Click the image below for a larger view.

I know most of you don’t obsess over hurricanes as much as I do. (Aside from those of you in Florida, that is.)

This is an interesting view of the Caribbean and a good portion of the Atlantic from GOES 16. Florence looks to be about the size of Georgia. (More below the image.)

I like how you can see the blue of the water in the Bahamas, and the cities come to life as the nightfall terminator passes and cities light up.

Florence is the circulation in the upper left-hand corner. The circulation in the upper right, which is clearly disintegrating is what is left of Hurricane Helene tropical storm Joyce. And that in the lower right corner is Tropical Storm Isaac. (It was downgraded from Hurricane Isaac a day or 2 ago.)
