Low cloud/fog early detection over Lake Erie on 16 March 2011 from WFO BUF

The new CIRA stratus/fog IR satellite worked well late
afternoon/evening.  It clearly showed low stratus and fog developing
on Lake Erie, which was hardly visible on other products. It was useful because the new product captured the feature before sunset (after sunset the 11u-3.9u picked it up).
