“Zombie” satellite shuts down critical NOAA NWS systems overnight

“Zombie” satellite shuts down critical NOAA NWS systems overnight. A satellite malfunction triggered a temporary loss of satellite weather forecasting data, but a work-round is in place. Now weather forecasting is something Anthony Watts actually knows a little about!

Too bad, but not surprising, that his contribution is just to whine about how his inquiries weren’t answered fast enough.

  1. Does Watts know something about weather forecasting? A couple of months ago I found he didn’t even know the difference between polar lows, baroclinic disturbances and ordinary hurricanes.
