GOES-R IFR Probabilities with the new GOES-East (GOES-14)

GOES-R IFR Probabilities computed using GOES-14, 2045 UTC 23 May 2013

GOES-R IFR Probabilities computed using the ‘new’ GOES-East, GOES-14, are now available in AWIPS.  Note that GOES-14 is positioned over 105.5 W, versus 75 W for GOES-13.  The most likely region for fog, over the shelf waters of the Atlantic Ocean off the mid-Atlantic Coast and in the Gulf of Maine, corresponds to regions where air with dewpoints in the 60s is moving over still-cold ocean waters.  Advection fog results. 

As above, but with visibilities/ceilings over New York and surroundings.
