Satellite Image of the Week #15

This week’s satellite image is a view of the sky over Texas a few days ago.  I liked this image as it shows a few stronger thunderstorm cells embedded in a Mesoscale Convective System (MCS).  Often, a large storm system like this will contain a rotating cell or two that can produce tornadoes.  These tornadoes are often harder to find than those associated with discrete supercells.

Thank you for reading this post!
