Satellite Image of the Week #9

This week’s satellite images were taken this morning and this afternoon.

The first image shows some mountain waves coming from the Appalachian Mountains over West Virginia. There are cloud streets downstream from the mountain ranges. You can see the pattern; this pattern corresponds to the wind speed over the mountain range.

Early this afternoon, the cumulus clouds that formed from the mountain wave pattern have continued to grow, and will be today’s afternoon thunderstorms for West Virginia and western Virginia.

Thank you for reading this post!
