This week’s satellite image was taken this morning over the Gulf Coast. Notice the cloud streets forming over eastern Texas- that is a good indication that moisture is advecting from the Gulf of Mexico onto land. Notice a few storms fired near the TX/LA border, and their anvils were blown east; an indication that the upper level winds were west to east, versus the surface winds from the southeast.
Thank you for reading this post!
