A two-channel temporal updating system is presented, which accounts for feature changes in the visible and infrared satellite images. The system uses two probabilistic neural network classifiers and a context-based predictor to perform continuous cloud classification during the day and night. Test results for 27 h of continuous classification and updating are presented on a sequence of Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite 8 images. Further test results of the system on two new sets of data with 1-2 weeks time difference are also presented that show the potential of this system as an operational continuous cloud classification system.
