Atlantic Hurricane Season Satellite and Radar Imagery Animations

Prepared by:
Donovan Landreneau, Meteorologist (Senior Forecaster)

This webpage contains all the Atlantic Tropical Storms and Hurricanes Affecting the United States and seasonal Atlantic Hurricane Season GOES Satellite Imagery animations available.  Also included are radar animations of select United States landfalling hurricanes from 1979-1992 and early radar animations of Hurricane Audrey: June 26-27, 1957.

This webpage provides the links of the animations organized by year, and individual storm’s satellite and radar animations. These animations are available through the National Weather Service Lake Charles, Louisiana YouTube  page.

Atlantic Hurricane Season GOES Infrared Satellite Imagery
These animations present a chronological succession of GOES Infrared Satellite Imagery for the Atlantic, Caribbean, and Gulf of Mexico. Within these animations, the names of all the tropical cyclones appear near the formation location. Being only an image animation, no audio was created.

Atlantic Tropical Storms and Hurricanes Affecting the United States: A Satellite and Radar Study
These animations chronicle the tropical cyclones that affected the United States each season, using GOES satellite imagery and land based National Weather Service WSR-88D radar imagery in the areas affected. Being only an image animation, no audio was created.

The tables below show all the satellite and radar animations available, one table per yearly Atlantic Hurricane Season. The first title "Atlantic Hurricane Season GOES Infrared Satellite Imagery" links to the complete GOES infrared satellite imagery animation for that season. The next title "Atlantic Tropical Storms and Hurricanes Affecting the United States" links to the yearly YouTube playlist. Then the individual satellite and radar animations are linked to the corresponding YouTube animations. The storm names are linked to the National Hurricane Center's Tropical Cyclone Reports for further information on that particular storm.

*Unable to make animation due to data integrity issues with most of the dataset. 
**The years 1978-1982 are in production and will be added once complete.

Early SMS 2, GOES 2, 5, 6, 7 CLASS satellite imagery archive has the following limitations:
- Data integrity issues, with black or white lines across some of the frames.
- Data gaps in archive left intermittent gaps in the animations, or in some cases, not enough data to create an animation for a particular storm.

The GOES 6-7 satellites had a history of being moved to a central U.S. location. This was due to failures of the cloud imagers of GOES 5 (GOES East) on July 30, 1984 and GOES 6 (GOES West) on January  21, 1989. GOES 6 positions ranged from 98° to 107° West Longitude from August 1984-April 1987. GOES 7 positions ranged from 98° to 107° West Longitude from January 1989-December 1991, but stayed at 112° West Longitude from January 1992-November 1994 due to being low on fuel for yearly maneuvers. The following website has a great summary of all the GOES Satellites, dates of operations, and positions:
