Abstract
Satellite-based brightness temperature observations are used in a wide range of applications for monitoring weather systems over land and especially over water, including short-term prediction of the evolution of weather systems. Results are presented from an evaluation of three extrapolation-based nowcasting procedures to predict satellitebased brightness temperatures up to 3 hours into the future. Analyses are based on using METEOSAT-8 Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) data as a proxy for the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) to be flown on the next-generation National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES)-R series.
