Satellite Image of the Week 2019 #32

This week’s image was taken a few days ago over the southern Great Plains.

This satellite image shows a line of storms that are embedded in the cloud cover over these states. The severe storms have overshooting tops, shown as the crisp bubbles on the western edge of these clouds. The severe storms are likely ahead of a frontal boundary passing through the region.

I did not save any data from this time period, so I can’t comment on them any more than that. In terms of storm chasing, if you weren’t on these storms by the time this satellite image was captured, you won’t catch them.

Thank you for reading this post!
