Roll Clouds

AWIPS animation of visible satellite on Friday, December 16.
AWIPS animation of GOES-East visible imagery on December 16, 2016. Roll clouds are very evident in this imagery. Also note the hard edge of the cloud canopy of the cool air wedge in place around Lumber City, GA.

Yesterday’s skies were particularly awesome, with lots of roll clouds on display. Shea Gibson of WeatherFlow shared some photos from the ground as well as a great explainer on how the clouds ended up like they did over on Facebook.

Timelapse: One Storm Dies, Another’s Born

A severe-warned thunderstorm that produced quarter-size hail in Hanahan missed my part of West Ashley to the northeast this afternoon. However, this thunderstorm produced an outflow boundary which intersected with the seabreeze over the Charleston/Dorchester county line to generate new showers and thunderstorms. These thunderstorms pushed east and dropped a brief amount of rain and a little wind before moving on to the southeast.

Summer is the best.
