Tempest continued

Michael Milligan gave me a great site for the NOAA GOES weather satellite images and merged a few for a look at the low-pressure system that gave us a windy day Friday. What's great about the GOES site is you can get full-resolution 16-bit TIFFs from the site. I took the East Coast selection, cropped it, resized, edited the histogram, scaled it to account for its equatorial perspective, and redid the tempest:

Reasonably (640x480) sized image of the above.

Nicely done. And way to work with the good source material. I didn't feel up to slurping quite that many pixels into memory, so I stuck to the medium res files.
