YESTERDAY'S SEVERE WEATHER VIA GOES-14 SUPER-RAPID SCANS, RADAR COMPOSITES, AND WPC SURFACE ANALYSES! (credit: NWS Weather Prediction Center)
DISCUSSION: In light of the recent severe weather outbreak, here is a truly photogenic example of multiple forms of imagery from which many different perspectives of this recent severe weather can be observed. Note in the first portion, how you can clearly denote the regions of deeper (and rapidly developing) convection by way of the quickly bubbling areas of brighter white clouds via visible satellite imagery. In addition, you are also able to identify many different outflow boundaries which can be identified as thin white lines moving away from the brightest cloud development across nearly all of the region shown in the animation below! Note the incredible complexity associated with this convection as it developed through the afternoon and evening hours in accordance with the diurnal heating through the course of the day!
