The GOES-16 Day Cloud Distinction (RGB) sampled high clouds (shown in an orange color in this imagery) over the Florida Keys this afternoon. Our 12z sounding (from the weather balloon we launched this morning) depicted this occurrence when it sampled temperature and dew point lines close together in the upper layers of the atmosphere. Bottom line, expect another beautiful afternoon in the Keys!

If you see a distressed or deceased manatee in the wild, it is important to report it by calling the FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute's Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922).Tip saves manatee calf
When a family on vacation observed a little lone manatee calf in shallow water, they called our Wildlife Alert Hotline and stayed with the manatee until rescuers arrived. The very young manatee calf had not nursed in several days and was very dehydrated. Thanks to this caring family from Ohio, the male calf was rescued and is now being bottle-fed around the clock at the Miami Seaquarium. It is rare to have a manatee at this young age survive, but we hope he is on the road to growth and recovery. Find the original story on our FWC Fish and Wildlife Research Institute page: bit.ly/2GKi8ML. To report a distressed or dead manatee, call our Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922).

Rescues were conducted under permit: MA770191
