Zoom Earth

shows live weather satellite images of the Earth in a fast, zoomable map. Explore near real-time weather images, rainfall radar maps, and animated wind maps. Track tropical cyclones, severe storms, wildfires, natural hazards and more.

Live weather images are updated every 10 minutes fromNOAA GOESandJMA Himawari-8geostationary satellites.EUMETSAT Meteosatimages are updated every 15 minutes. Blueclouds at night represent low-lying clouds and fog.

Tropical cyclone tracks and forecast maps are created using the most recent data fromNHCJTWCNRLandIBTrACS.

Animated surface wind speed forecast maps are generated using the NOAA-NWSGFSmodel.

Rain radar maps are provided byRainViewer. Coverage is limited to areas with radar, and may show anomalies.

Heat maps show the locations of wildfires and sources of high temperature using data fromFIRMSandInciWeb.

Imagery at higher zoom levels is provided byMicrosoft.

HD weather satellite images are updated twice a day from NASA-NOAA polar-orbiting satellitesSuomi-NPP, and MODISAquaandTerra, using services fromGIBS, part ofEOSDIS. Imagery is captured at approximately 10:30 local time for AM and 13:30 local time for PM.
