Image Caption:
Storm over Texas (S31-77-077). This view stretches from the Gulf
of California (near the horizon on the upper left) to the Texas
coast. The entire Texas coast is obscured by a large convective
complex which generated up to 11 inches of rain over north-
central Texas. This figure and the next (Figure 14) document on
successive days the movement and extent the storm. Parallel
flanking lines of thunderstorms are visible on the southern point
of the storm system. The thin linear clouds in advance of the
line indicate the strong low-level southeasterly wind flow which
was sustaining the thunderstorms. Also, the wave-like clouds
near the upper-center of the image indicate strong mid-level tur-
bulence behind the thunderstorms.
