Ingesting dry air

19 Nov 2009 06:08 AM
The featured map is water vapor channel satellite imagery from Wednesday evening showing the impressive size of the slow moving storm system that has brought pesky showers to the southeast half of Iowa. Areas in orange and red indicate dry air aloft and you can see the storm system is now ingesting these pockets of dry air from both the east and west. This dry air has cut down on the amount of rainfall being produced and our system will finally pull away from the state today.

Good: 37
Bad: 5
