NASA Infrared View of Tropical Cyclone Peta

Caption: NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Western Australia on Jan. 23 at 0547 UTC (12:47 a.m. EST/U.S.) and AIRS instrument data revealed that cloud top temperatures have warmed which indicates the strength in the uplift of air (that helps form thunderstorms) has weakened.
