This 3-D Flyby animation shows Ophelia’s storm tops heights on Oct. 10 from GPM radar data that remain after GOES satellite data are removed. The area covered by GPM’s 151.9 mile-wide (245 km) Ku band radar swath is shown in lighter shades. GPM’s radar (DPR Ku Band) showed that rain was falling at a rate of almost 3.2 inches (81 mm) per hour in the strongest band of showers located on the southern side of the tropical storm.
