About Derived Motion Winds

Derived Motion Wind Vectors (DMW) are produced using sequential ABI images and as such they can provide important information about winds at different levels during asynoptic times. Areas of wind shear or jet maxima can be identified. Wind Vectors are computed using both visible and infrared (including water vapor) imagery. DMWs are used to identify regions of strong winds or wind shear to confirm model forecasts and/or to anticipate the result of strong winds or shear.
