Satellite Image of the Week #16

This week’s Satellite Image of the Week shows a near cyclonic feature.  I’m honestly not sure about this, though there are several things happening.  First, we can see a long frontal boundary over the Atlantic.  We can also see that there are sea breezes moving onto the coast, leaving the area at the coast cloud-free.  There are some mountain-wave pattern clouds over North Carolina and Virginia, and pockets of snow in New England.

At first, I thought there was a mid-latitude cyclone over Maine, and we were seeing the warm sector over the ocean.  I don’t think that’s the case however.  I didn’t pay any attention to the weather in this area after I grabbed this image.

Feel free to weigh in on it and let me know what you see!

Thank you for reading this post!
