A strong anticyclone extended over northern parts of Russia and Europe, bringing cold and dry wintry weather.
22 October 2020
20 January 2013
The skies were mainly clear, but a wide area of low cloudiness extended over northwest Russia during the evening of 20 January. The thin low-level cloudiness was clearly visible in the 24-hour Microphysics RGB.
However, the performance of Night Microphysics RGB was not as good. Due to the specifics of channel 4, it is difficult to detect thin low-level clouds in cold wintertime conditions.
The colour-enhanced IR3.9 image is very useful to see the surface (skin) temperatures of the snow-covered ground in Russia.
