Satellite Image of the Week #43

This week’s image shows a large line of storms firing in the Enhanced Risk area over Kansas.  You can see multiple overshooting tops associated with these storms.

A strong trough and associated cold front are the forcing mechanisms with these storms, hence the speed at which they became linear.

Thank you for reading this post!
