ES2013  Satellite Imagery Combined with Surface Analysis Data

This map combines a surface analysis map with a color-enhanced infrared image from a satellite. The locations of fronts are indicated with standard symbols. A key showing weather front symbols is located at: Weather Map Front Symbols .

The colored part of this image shows the temperature at the tops of the clouds. As temperature decreases with increasing height in the lower atmosphere, colder clouds indicate higher clouds.
