From The Weather Center:
WeatherBrains 101: This edition of the WeatherBrains 101 segment is more of a news item. NOAA’s newest satellite, GOES-16, has just sent the first high resolution images, so this seemed like a great topic to keep all you weather nerds, er, enthusiasts, up-to-date on great step forward in our satellite observation program.
Listener Surveys: Okay, we continue to drive this topic into the ground, but we really do like to hear from you. Many thanks to everyone who has taken the time to fill out the Listener Survey.
