    DisclaimerI'm not responsible for any system calibration inaccuracies and timeliness of my satellite images is not guaranteed, although they are usually posted within 15 minutes of acquisition. Please check the date and time (GMT) at the bottom of the displayed image; this corresponds to the start of the spacecraft's imager scan. Flight levels (FL) are in hundreds of feet; Temperature to Height correlation is based on a standard lapse rate of 2 deg C per 1,000 feet. International Standar d Atmosphere (ISA) lapse rate is 1.98 deg C per 1,000 feet starting from 15 deg C at sea level. Actual temperature height varies according to the moisture content, instability and other factors.
