Infrared imagery is useful for determining cloud features both at day and night. The temperature is interpreted by grayscale values. You can also get the latest temperature, weather and wind observations from actual weather stations under the live weather section. Water vapor imagery is useful for both determining locations of moisture and atmospheric circulations. Even having two monsoons as well as two inter monsoons, the Island has good weather and sunshine in some part of the island most of the time. Dragon will return to Earth Jan.
Wind Shear 150-300mb layer mean minus 700-925mb layer mean Wind Shear charts come in handy when there is Tropical Cyclone activity in the region. Yellow contours indicate the corresponding numerical value in Knots of Wind Shear in that area. Coming closer to a common point can be explained simply as Convergence. India Weather Map The India Weather Map below shows the weather forecast for the next 10 days. Wind Shear is the net result of the change of speed or direction of wind speed along a straight route of its travel and the result is given in Knots. View of wind, precipitation, temperature and cloud. The system will be available for a fee to the central government, local governments and private companies, to improve their disaster prevention measures.
Control the animation using the slide bar found beneath the weather map. Learn to self analyze a Satellite Weather Map quickly to obtain an accurate Weather Report by yourself, just by going through this tutorial. . Here the Upper Wind is taken at a range of 150-300 mb range which corresponds to an average of about 40,000 feet above sea level and the Lower Wind is taken at a range of 700-925 mb range which corresponds to an average of about 5000 feet above sea level. Colder objects are brighter and warmer objects are darker. High clouds as thin cirrus or deep convection, for example towering thunderstorm cells, appear bright white.
Anyone like to study the topic in detail can visit the Web sites of University of Wisconsin-Madison Space Science and Engineering Center and Indian Meteorological Department's web sites which opens up for Weather maps linked here. Select from the other forecast maps on the right to view the temperature, cloud cover, wind and precipitation for this country on a large scale with animation. There is a Z behind the 24 hour time stamp of Kalpana-1 images. You can also get the latest temperature, weather and wind observations from actual weather stations under the live weather section. These meteorological satellites, however, see more than clouds and cloud systems. For DigitalGlobe, the loss was brutal: an Earth-imaging satellite called WorldView-4, which had clients that include Google Maps. It is an Infra Red Image of the major area of the region.
A basic knowledge on how to identify the rain clouds on a map showing Sri Lanka and the Indian Ocean, will enable the visitor to know exact weather conditions at the moment and the possible weather pattern for the next day or may be more. The high-resolution satellite images, captured by Planet Labs on January 4, 6 and 7, show activity at the Imam Khomeini Space Center consistent with steps that were taken prior to a previous launch in 2017, according to researchers at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey. Infra Red images can be taken any time of the day. Example maps with readings are given for easy understanding. Here the Upper Wind is taken at a range of 150-300 mb range which corresponds to an average of about 40,000 feet above sea level and the Lower Wind is taken at a range of 700-925 mb range which corresponds to an average of about 5000 feet above sea level.
Looking carefully at the Chart will show you the land mass demarcated in White which shows, Sri Lanka, India, South East region ,the Gulf and a part of Africa. During the day, the imagery looks approximately as it would appear when viewed with human eyes from space. So are cold land surfaces and most ocean areas. The images are taken on a half-hourly basis. Colder objects are brighter and warmer objects are darker. Wind Shear is the net result of the change of speed or direction of wind speed along a straight route of its travel and the result is given in Knots.
A bigger cloud formation is already at the southern section of the island so the rain cloud activity will be there for the southern part of the island for few more hours. Colder and generally higher clouds tops are highlighted in colors. Example reading from an enlarged Sri Lanka map obtained from a Satellite Weather Image The enlarged Sri Lanka map can be seen here with India in the north west direction and blue coloured Indian Ocean surrounding the island. The traveller will be counting on good weather for sight seeing and travelling , as good weather will make him stick to his travel plans and the travelling to be more pleasurable. The 'beauty' of thermal infrared images is that they provide information on cloud cover and the temperature of air masses even during night-time, while visible satellite imagery is restricted to daylight hours. Control the animation using the slide bar found beneath the weather map.
Add 5 Hours and 30 Minutes to the stamped Zulu Time to get the Sri Lankan time of the image. The Long March-3B carrier rocket blasted off from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in the southern province of Sichuan at 01:11 local time on Friday 10:11 Moscow time on Thursday. Another link also is available for Indian Insat 3D satellite weather imaging which also gives InfraRed and Water Vapor Weather maps of the region which gets updated every half an hour. In the Lower layer , if there are concentrated rings like contours, which also in the same placement of a concentrated Upper Level Divergence, then there is a possibility of a formation of a Tropical Storm or a Hurricane. Map overlays available for display: India Pressure, Wind, Wind+pressure, India Freezing level. The minister said Iran would launch another satellite soon.
Red and yellow areas indicate little or no moisture present. These satellite weather maps gets updated once in every three hours. The 229-foot-tall 70-meter Falcon 9 rocket lit its nine Merlin 1D main engines and climbed away from Space Launch Complex 4-East at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, at 7:31:33 a. The images are taken on a half-hourly basis. They are equipped with modern Ka and Q-band transponders and support high-speed Internet, telephony and other broadcasting services.
