Satellite Image of the Week 2019 #36

This week’s image was taken a few days ago over the Caribbean.

I captured this image of Hurricane Dorian at its peak. It is was quite a storm, and it’s still doing damage, even though it has weakened considerably since this image was taken.

Notice the well-defined eye. At one point, it hovered in one spot so long that the 24 hour precipitation image had an “eye” where no precipitation fell.

Maybe next week, you’ll get a non-hurricane-related Satellite Image of the Week, but we will see. There are a few more systems developing over warm water.

Thank you for reading this post!
