Luckily, I have both those color scales, and I am actually planning on getting satellite views with the color scales to be generated automatically and released for anybody to access

The old SSD floaters are back on tap at http://www.ssd.noaa.gov/PS/TROP/floaters-old.html

They appear to use GOES-13, but glad they're back

The ultimate would be if they released that same set of enhanced IR products but with GOES-16 or 17.

I think they're GOES-16 actually. You can tell because the interval on the images is 15 minutes. The old generation of GOES didn't do that for floaters.

If they're GOES-16, shouldn't they be 5-minute intervals, and with better resolution? That's really what I want, as @SconnieCane said, the old product with the new data.

Thanks to all of you for the responses.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the SSD site has that 5-minute interval, but part of the reason is that GOES-16 only takes pictures every 5-minutes for the United States (also known as the 'CONUS sector'), while it takes a full disk image every 15 minutes so it would be more reliable to stick with the global 15 minute interval. I think TropicalTidbits detects when a storm moves into the CONUS sector and switches then, but I don't think SSD does that.

The SSD floaters seem to have stopped working for this current Atlantic batch.

...but still, though, a lot more interesting than the 2013 season.

Not a meteorologist, in fact more of an idiot than anything. You should probably check with the NHC or a local NWS office for official information.
