This week’s image was taken this afternoon over the High Plains.
I figure I owe at least one post to the massive amounts of cloud cover that have limited the diurnal heating and therefore have limited the storm chasing potential.
The cloud cover isn’t the only thing to blame, but it has been limiting the heating. We’ve had weak capping inversions as well, meaning every bubble of convection has access to the meager Convective Available Potential Energy (CAPE), causing clusters and lines of storms to form instead of discrete supercells.
Thank you for reading this post!
