The synoptic situation and an analysis of the cloud cover as seen by Tiros III satellite is presented for a case study of 1800Z, 26 August 1961. Particular reference is made to the translational motion of precipitation echoes in the tropics, as determined by tracking selected small echoes and cells. Comparisons of these motions are made with winds aloft. The space smoothed translational motion of precipitation echoes in this case study most nearly represented the wind flow at 10,000 ft.
