NOAA's National Weather Service - Satellite Images

We use this free service just about everyday, and thought we'd share it with you. The tabbed interface gives you all kinds of weather data, but the main page is stunning. It shows you precipitation for the entire US.

This shows the most recent image of the United States, taken from a NOAA satellite. This image is taken in the infrared band of light and show relative warmth of objects. Colder objects are brighter and warmer objects are darker. Lower layers of clouds, generally warmer and lower in altitude, are colored gray. Colder and generally higher clouds tops are highlighted in colors. IR imagery is useful for determining cloud features both at day and night.
