Short summary
Satellite radiance observations have only recently become usable in conditions of cloud and precipitation for the initialization of weather forecasts. The move to all-sky assimilation started with data from the microwave part of the spectrum, with substantial benefit to the quality of operational forecasts. The current work shows a framework in which cloudy infrared data, with its stronger and more non-linear sensitivity, can also benefit operational-quality forecasts.
