Incredible Airmass Contrast

This is old news, but one of my students pointed out to me today that there was a mind-boggling contrast in airmass between Salt Lake (purple) and Elko (red/green) yesterday afternoon.

That's pretty much as large as they come around here with a surface temperature contrast of a whopping 27C and a 700-mb contrast of ~18C.
