Satellite Image of the Week #40

This week’s Satellite Image of the Week shows a few storms firing across Texas and New Mexico at sunset.  A few things are going on in this image.  First, there is an outflow boundary that stretches from Roswell, NM, to somewhere in central TX.  Convective fluffs are turning into cumulonimbus clouds as this boundary jogs south.  Also, notice how the low sun angle is casting long shadows from the tallest cumulonimbus clouds in eastern TX.

Thank you for reading this post!
