This week’s image was taken this afternoon over Texas.
A low pressure system over northeastern Texas is pulling moisture from the Gulf of Mexico up the TX/LA border, firing a few storms along this boundary. Based on the location of the front and the center of circulation (near Dallas), I think this mid-latitude cyclone is beginning to occlude.
Storms are firing on the cold front that has not yet occluded. In central Texas, clouds are mixing out due to the subsiding air, which is visible on the loop, but not so much in this still image.
Thank you for reading this post!
