Satellite images

  • RGB image, natural colours daytime RGB image (1.6 µm + 0.8 µm + 0.6 µm) is observable in daylight.
  • Infrared image (10.8 µm) is observable in day and night.

The legend of day natural colours imagery:

Paks jääpilvisus (Cb, paksemad Cs); lumikate, külmunud veekogud

Thick ice cloudiness (Cb, thick Cs). Colour of nontransparent cloudiness is determined by properties of its upper boundary and do not directly give information about cloud cover thickness

Õhuke jääpilvisus (Cs, Ci, Cc)

Thin ice cloudiness (Cs, Ci, Cc). Colours are strongly variable in dependence on solar illumination

Vee- ja segapilvisus (Ac, As, Cu, Sc, St), Madalamad, suurematest osakestest koosnevad pilved on tumedamad ja punakamad

Water and mixed-phase cloudiness (Ac, As, Cu, Sc, St). Cloudiness, which is lower and consists of larger droplets, is darker and more reddish

Rünkpilved (Cu)

Cumulus clouds (Cu)

Rünksajupilv (Cb)

Cumulonimbus cloud (Cb)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The legend of the satellite imagery above Estonia:

Thick ice cloudiness (Cb, thick Cs)

Thin ice cloudiness (Cs, Ci, Cc)

Thick intermediate cloudiness (As, Ac, Ns). The higher is the clouds’ upper boundary, the more reddish it is

Thin intermediate cloudiness (As, Ac)

Low cloudiness (St, Sc) or fog. The lower is clouds’ upper boundary, the more whitish it is

Low cloudiness (St, Sc) or fog. The lower is clouds’ upper boundary, the more whitish it is

Estonian Weather Service uses the data from EUMETSAT Meteosat satellite. Sattellite images are in local time.

NB! Fresh images appear to the web page with the delay of 25 minutes from real time.

Estonia is EUMETSAT (European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites) cooperative state from 2006 and member state from 2013. Satellite data is transferred through EUMETCast.
