The Meteosat-10 enhanced infrared imagery, 15 October 00:00–09:00 UTC, shows Hurricane Gonzalo cross the Atlantic. The colours give an indication of cloud top temperature, with the coldest temperatures being the darkest red. The shape and extent of the coldest areas is used in estimating the intensity of the storm. The yellow to red regions are the areas with the most intense rainfall.
Watch an enhanced infrared animation of Gonzalo's transition from tropical depression (bottom left, off Venezuelan coast), to hurricane, to extra-tropical storm, Meteosat-10, 11 October 19:00 UTC–20 October 07:00 UTC.
