I have a forecaster that would like to know if there is any new information on the Sept 26 session " Can total lightning help with warnings for non-supercell tornadoes?". When was the last time...

RE: GOES-16 Color Tables

The easiest way to ensure you have the correct color tables is to edit the colormap, if the default is greater than 256 colors than it is GOES-16.  This would be true of any of the GOES-16...

GOES-16 Color Tables

  Although it appears that we have Goes-16 color tables in our Awips, installed back in February, they look like 8 bit tables with a wrap-around from the high values back to low.  ...
