This week’s Satellite Image of the Week shows strong morning convection over much of Pennsylvania and Ohio.
Typically, this type of convection is seen a little later in the day. Notice how there were cloud streets, but a few dominant cumulus clouds have developed and, while still arranged in streets, show fewer cumulus clouds total. Some of the clouds are shadowing land in front of them. This limits diurnal heating in these areas, causing some of the cloud streets to disappear.
Thank you for reading this post!
