Caption: The TRMM image taken on Sept. 24 at 4:49 p.m. EDT clearly showed Nadine's cyclonic circulation in the swirling cloud elements (visible in white) as they spiral in towards the center in a counter clockwise direction. Nadine's rainfall is very asymmetric with nearly all of the rain contained in a rainband north of the center (shown in green, indicating moderate rain). Right near the center, there were some smaller areas of rain present (shown in blue, indicating light rain).
