Satellite Image of the Week: #16

This week’s satellite image was taken this morning over Texas. This image shows a thin line of convection, where a dryline and a cold front were colinear over the Texas Panhandle. This often leads to squall lines as a preferred storm morphology over supercells, as the cold front provides a strong mechanical forcing mechanism for convective development.

Thank you for reading this post!
