    GOES R IFR probability product can help determine how likely IFR conditions are This product is currently produced from MODIS data and from GOES East and GOES West data The product uses both the brightness temperature difference field and Rapid Refresh moisture profiles to assign probabilities of IFR conditions MODIS IFR Probabilities are highest along the Chemung and Susquehanna Rivers in southern Upstate NY at 0700 UTC Elmira NY was reporting visibility of 1 4 mile in Fog No other stations in the Susquehanna River watershed had visibilities that low Note that the character of the IFR Probability field is different over Steuben County compared to elsewhere High clouds that are apparent in the brightness temperature difference field and in the longwave infrared radiation field mean that satellite data cannot be used to compute IFR probabilities so only model fields are used and the model fields have lower resolution than the MODIS data The 0700 UTC GOES R IFR Probability field computed using GOES East imager data is shown below Because of the coarser resolution of the GOES Imager pixel the small valleys cannot be resolved Nevertheless higher probabilities are present near the valleys because sub pixel scale cloud features do have an impact on the emitted shortwave and longwave radiation GOES R IFR Probabilities increased over the course of the night so that by 1100 UTC there were signals over most of north central Pennsylvania and in most river valleys of central Pennsylvania and airports in those valleys Williamsport KIPT Selinsgrove KSEG Clearfield KFIG for example all reported IFR conditions GOES Imager based GOES R IFR Probabilities Note that these products are available in WFOs From the 0958 UTC AFD in State College PA NEAR TERM UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING EARLY AM MODIS 11 3 7UM IMAGERY SHOWING DENDRITIC PATTERN OF FOG IN THE VALLEYS THE RESULT OF A COOL CALM MORNING AND RELATIVELY WARM RIVER STREAM WATERS LATEST 3KM HRRR SFC RH FIELDS SUGGEST THE MOST PERSISTENT FOG WILL BE UNDER SFC RIDGE AXIS ACROSS THE SUSQ VALLEY WHERE PATCHES COULD LINGER UNTIL 14Z 15Z Posted in Fog detection General interpretation GOES 13 GOES R MODIS Suomi NPP VIIRS No Comments Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Webmaster Follow us on Search for Pages About this site CIMSS Satellite Proving Ground Contact us Mobile users POES AVHRR in AWIPS SatePedia Suomi NPP JPSS Proving Ground VISIT SHyMet Training Topics November 2012 M T W T F S S Oct 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 Categories Air quality Antarctic Arctic AVHRR Aviation AWIPS II Calibration Anomalies Cloud Top Cooling Convective Initiation Fire detection Fog detection General interpretation GOES sounder GOES 10 GOES 11 GOES 12 GOES 13 GOES 14 GOES 15 GOES R Google Earth Heavy rain flooding Historical Hydrology Lightning Marine
