A Diverse Pattern

There's a lot to love in the latest satellite loop for North America:

  • Ridging over the western US with some afternoon convection mainly over the high terrain
  • A Mesoscale Convective System (MCS) forming from convection over the high terrain of New Mexico and the flatlands of central Texas that drifts eastward to the Texarkana area (I've always wanted to say Texarkana!).
  • Tropical Storm Andrea making landfall in what I'll call the Bight of Florida.  
  • And, way up in the upper right hand corner, one can find an extratropical cyclone that is bringing some snow to NewFoundland and Labrador.  

Yup, there's something here for just about everyone except perhaps severe convection aficionados, although there is a tornado watch in place for much of Florida due to the effects of Andrea.
