Image Caption: Line of thunderstorms (squall line) over Louisiana

This low oblique view shows the Mississippi River Delta and squall line. In this case, the squall line is associated with local convective cells. The moist air necessary for these storms often results in the formation of haze as seen here. Organized clouds such as these are always of interest to meteorologists.
