AVHRR IR satellite image from 4:51 pm CDT on May 31, 2013

The above image is an AVHRR IR satellite capture from 4:51 pm CDT on May 31, 2013. IR satellite images are useful because they depict how cold cloud tops are. In this case, the deep reds, blacks, and grays represent very cold cloud tops associated with developing supercell thunderstorms. Other weaker storms are also noted across southwest Oklahoma, where more greens and yellows are noted. The other markers (light blue) on this map are surface plots, and indicate surface conditions at various locations across Oklahoma and north Texas.
