GOES-16 1-min satellite imagery was available over the southern High Plains for monitoring of severe convection on 30 May 2018. One storm in particular displayed rapid intensification, as displayed in Figure 1 below. Using a 1-min updating sandwich image combo, rapid cooling and overshooting top development is easily diagnosed with the southernmost storm. The overlaid tracking meteogram trend graph is another way to show the rapid cooling/strengthening that occurred. The storm top cooled roughly 13C in 20 minutes! Severe wind damage and 2″ diameter hail were reported with this storm about 10 minutes after it was at its coolest.
