NASA AIRS Images Show Changes in Florence in 2 Days

Caption: The AIRS instrument that flies on NASA's Aqua satellite captured these infrared images of Florence on Aug. 4-5. The AIRS image from Aug. 4 showed a larger spiraled storm. By Aug. 5 when dry air started interacting with the system the area of stronger thunderstorms had diminished and the storm had a tight, small area of strong, high, cold cloud tops of thunderstorms around the center of circulation.
