Satellite Image of the Week #16

This week’s satellite image is a view of the sky over Louisiana a few days ago.  You can see the cloud streets moving in off the Gulf Coast into Louisiana and Arkansas.

These are different than mountain-wave pattern clouds, even though both of them form lines of clouds.  When this loop is set into motion (unfortunately, I did not capture those photos), the clouds’ motion is north, moving inland.  With mountain-wave patterns, clouds are either stationary, or drift away from the mountains (from the Rockies or Appalachians, this normally looks like an eastward motion).

Thank you for reading this post!
