This week’s image was taken this morning over the Pacific, off the coast of South and Central America.
I don’t know much about what is happening here. I just liked this picture.
I have been playing around with weather-related websites from other countries. I would like to know what is happening to produce this pattern of clouds. The break in the clouds looks to be too sharp to be frontal boundaries, and it loosely follows the contours of the land, leading me to believe that it may be land breezes. Maybe the clouds are farther away from the shore due to the cold ocean current that runs along the South American coast. I’m not really sure, but I liked this image.
Thank you for reading this post!
