Modis Satellite Picture

modis lake michigan  Here’s the Tues. PM Modis Satellite picture of Lake Michigan.  Click on the image or click here to enlarge.  Note the cumulus clouds from SW Lower Michigan around to Chicago.  They form from the edge of the lake breeze away from the lake, leaving the beach sunny.  There were some dissipating clouds over Lake Michigan.  There are cirrus clouds, a couple of jet contrails and my tornado “scar” visible near and northwest of Green Bay.  The land looks green and in the first week of September, that’s a good thing.   Here’s a MODIS picture of Lake Superior, Lake Huron, Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.   Also, a satellite view and a map of the RIM FIRE in California (now 75% contained), a satellite pic. of Typhoon Utor and the eruption of Mt. Sakurajima in Japan.

Also:  10 years of global weather in 3 minutes.

    Bill, We are back out in Yankee Springs for couple more nights. I had to turn on the heater to take out the chill. I think the fall colors will be near peak about the 5th or 7th of October. I am seeing alot of trees changing colors real fast. It will be interesting to see how the tropical storm season will be this month down along the gulf and east coast.

    Hey Bill how are ya! Summer time I got so busy haven’t been able to get on. I thought of ya because about ten minutes ago in my car I was picking up WGRD 97.9 from here in Escanaba like a local station! Also another rock station 106.1 Q 106 I found out from Charlotte Michigan is booming in as well! I love these lake inversions. Had one back in July where all Chicago FM’s were booming in as well.
