Satellite Image of the Week #24

This week’s Satellite Image of the Week shows the weakening Hurricane Bud soon after it made landfall.  You can see the center of circulation and the long spiral rain bands.

Here in New Mexico, we are receiving the precipitation from the remnants of this system.  It rained quite a bit today, for New Mexico, and we welcome it!  We have been under wildfire threats for several weeks, and several are burning as we speak.  My house received over a quarter of an inch of rain, and my garden is happy about that!

Thank you for reading this post!
