NASA's TRMM spacecraft observed this view of Tropical Cyclone Larry on March 19, 2006 at 1812Z. At this time the storm was classified as a dangerous category four with sustained winds of 100 knots (115 mph) and a pressure reading of 944mb. The cloud cover is taken by TRMM's Visible and Infrared Scanner(VIRS). The rain structure is taken by TRMM's Tropical Microwave Imager (TMI) and TRMM's Precitation Radar(PR) instruments. TRMM looks underneath of the storm's clouds to reveal the underlying rain structure. Blue represents areas with at least 0.25 inches of rain per hour. Green shows at least 0.5 inches of rain per hour. Yellow is at least 1.0 inches of rain and red is at least 2.0 inches of rain per hour.
