This is cool to see thanks to GOES16.

From today April 17, 2018.

The snow melt caused surface to warm up and clouds to form.

For those of you not sure... High Pressure has sinking air with it. Hard for clouds and storms to happen because of it..

Ever hear the term thunderstorm "cap"?. Like a lid on a boiling pot. Need to lift it for clouds to billow up and form the thunderstorm. Warm air above is the lid.

Looking at the 5000' airmass allows us to see the pattern for surface temps. Here's a cool way to convert the 850mb level temps to figure out surface temps.

19C temp at 5000' is very hot for Northeast. Add 15 to that and it means the surface will be in the low 90s.

The 850mb level (and 500mb) is a good way to see whats coming up as well. Remember the Top down approach. Surface Weather happens because of Upper-Mid Levels

what was the setup midsummer for hot weather and incessant rains and storms. Just on the edge of the high pressure allowing for instability ?
