The MODIS instrument onboard NASA Terra satellite captured this true-color image of Tropical Storm Bonnie on August 9th at 1:00 PM EDT (17:00 UTC). At the time this image was taken, Bonnie was just beginning to exhibit signs of tropical storm development and had maximum sustained winds around 40 mph.
The Tropical Rainfall Measuring
Mission (or TRMM) satellite has followed Bonnie's progress from a weak
tropical depression east of the Lesser Antilles to landfall as a tropical
storm along the northern coast of Florida.
