SatFC-G: Tropical to Extratropical Transition

SatFC-G: Tropical to Extratropical Transition

This lesson uses water vapor satellite imagery from Himawari-8 to describe the typical extratropical transition of a tropical cyclone. The Himawari-8 imager previews comparable capabilities coming online with the GOES-R ABI imager. The lesson also provides a brief overview of subtropical cyclones and their transition to tropical cyclones.

This lesson is a part of the NWS Satellite Foundation GOES-R Course.
