Watch a cold front push November’s warmth out

The UW-Madison Space Science and Engineering Center has long been a pioneer in the science (and art) of satellite imaging. SSEC is actually celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

One of their satellite images caught our eye today. The meteorological GOES-East satellite (one of the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites) shows the Midwest’s current bout of warm November weather being pushed out by a cold front moving in. See it here.

*Note: Once the cold front is out of the area, the satellite image will no longer reflect what the picture above depicts. However, it will show whatever climate and cloud phenomenon is taking place currently.
