  1. Is the circulation at different levels noticeable by the Cloud Tops product (CTTH)?
  2. Are the model fields consistent with the observed winds from satellite (HRW)?
  3. Is the moisture river confirmed from satellite (iSHAI bl)? Is it consistent with the model?
  4. The precipitation observed from the satellite (CRR-Ph): does it match what the model predicted? Is it consistent with rain gauges?
