Many types of satellite imagery are available to help
predict the weather. Satellites can provide information
about temperature, the amount of water vapor in the
air, cloud height, and wind speed.
Animating a series of satellite images is particularly
useful in weather prediction. The pattern and direction
of weather movement over time become obvious, and forecasters
can project observed patterns into the future.
