Satellite Image of the Week 2019 #18

This week’s Satellite Image of the Week shows a building squall line across northeastern Kansas.

The storms are firing near a boundary that runs through the central part of the state from east to west.  New cells are adding themselves to the squall line at the intersection between the existing line and the boundary that is drifting southward.

The Magdalena High School Storm Chase Team was on this boundary, waiting for the next cell to form. However, we ran out of daylight, and ended up dodging the squall line.  These cells were never really isolated, and were always part of the squall line along the boundary.

Thank you for reading this post!
