GOES-14 has come out of storage and will be providing Super Rapid Scan Operations for GOES-R (SRSOR) 1-min data for the next 2 weeks. Forecasters at SPC have found operational value in this imagery in the past (see previous blog posts), and are once again taking advantage of its availability. Feedback from SPC forecasters is been helpful in assessing the operational utility of 1-min satellite imagery, a capability of the GOES-R Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) that will be routinely available. For more information, including links to the real-time 1-min imagery and past examples, please visit: http://cimss.ssec.wisc.edu/goes/srsor2014/GOES-14_SRSOR.html.
