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!
