NASA Sees Talim Now Extra-Tropical

Tropical Storm Talim made landfall on Kyushu, the large island of southwestern Japan, where it weakened to an extra-tropical storm. NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured an image of the storm after its transition.

The Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument aboard NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite captured a visible light image of Talim on Sept. 18 at 0254 UTC (Sept. 17 at 10:54 p.m. EDT). The VIIRS image showed that Talim resembled a frontal system as the bulk of clouds were north and northeast of the center.
