Atmosphere:

GOES 17 infrared from Wednesday evening.

NOAA’s newest geostationary satellite, GOES 17 (GOES West), positioned over the pacific ocean, is not officially operational, but has been providing images during its testing period. I am now getting hourly infrared images relayed through my GOES East feed.

Sunny and 31 today. The pros say we may get a few inches of snow starting tomorrow night and lasting into Sunday.
