AccuWeather.com offers Standard Infrared satellite images for the entire world, including the United States. The term "Infrared" means that the satellite is detecting the temperature of the clouds. Standard Infrared satellites are grayscale; brighter clouds are colder, meaning higher and hence stronger storms.
