New weather satellite to be launched next month

NOAA will soon be launching a new weather satellite.

On March 1, NOAA will launch GOES-18 to monitor the western United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, Central America and the Pacific Ocean.

The satellite will be used to monitor weather systems and hazards that most affect this region of the Western Hemisphere, including weather, environmental hazard monitoring, ocean observations, and space weather.
