This week’s Satellite Image of the Week shows several thunderstorms scattered over the central part of the country.
The cluster over eastern Tennessee shows several stronger convective cells with overshooting tops. The cluster over Missouri does as well, but this cluster does not have the multiple strong updrafts that the Tennessee Cluster has. There are a few cells firing ahead of the cold pool in Illinois- in air that was not overturned by the Tennessee cluster, but is now along the outflow boundary of the Missouri cluster. Notice the crisp appearance of these young cells; they are developing strongly in this image.
Thank you for reading this post!
