Satellite Image of the Week 2020 #26

I didn’t post a Satellite Image of the Week last week because I was out chasing storms in KS/OK/TX and eastern NM.

This week’s image was taken this morning over the southwest.

There is a frontal boundary draped over southeastern Arizona, as shown by the nearly-perfectly straight line of clouds in this region.

Is there just a front in this area, of does it extend farther northeast?  Hard to say.  I didn’t run any sort of full analysis on it.  It could be that the front extends and the moisture is low enough to prevent cloud formation.  Part of the fun of meteorology is learning what to look for and learning what you missed.

Thank you for reading this post!
