The use of satellites in meteorology started way back,  ok not that far back.  The first weather satellite, Vanguard 2, was launched on February 17, 1959.  This year GOES 16 has jumped the weather analysis into a new level.

I have shared some of the water vapor and visible tools today’s image is not a photo but a composite from  Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS).
