MODIS Satellite Picture of Lake MichiganJune 19th, 2013 at 8:39 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
This is the MODIS Lake Michigan Satellite Picture from this afternoon. Click on the image or click here to enlarge. With all the rain, there is a lot of deep, green color to the land. A lot of fields are somewhat bare, given that the corn and soybeans are pretty small here on June 19th. You can see the cumulus clouds didn’t form over Lake Michigan or in the “shadow” of the lake breezes. Yes, you can still see the tornado scar WNW of Green Bay from a twister that moved through a forested area in June 2007. Here’s pictures of Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. Also, check out this rare mostly clear view of Alaska (huge, warm ridge over Alaska now) and this cool picture of the volcano and it’s steam on the island of Guau in the South Pacific (part of Vanuatu). The volcano is 25 miles wide at it’s base underwater and rises 10,000 feet above the ocean floor. Most of the volcano is underwater. The island is about 12 miles across.
