A technique is described which enables the combination of high vertical resolution (1 to 2-km) JPSS hyper-spectral soundings and high horizontal (2-km) and temporal (15-min) resolution GOES multi-spectral imagery to be used for real-time regional intense weather forecasting. The technique provides sounding products with the highest possible spatial and temporal resolution afforded by the CrIS, IASI, and ABI operational satellite instruments. Examples of its application to the mid-Atlantic region are presented.
