  1. Wow! Nice blog Bill! The meso sectors are incredible. I could watch that all day long. So much going on in these satellite loops. I would love to see GLM overlaid onto meso sector too. With derechos the jet sometimes gets pulled close to the surface. I wonder if we can see a 3-D rendering of how the jet played a role in advecting the line’s forward motion then down to the surface. Wind gusts of 100mph+ remind me that it would be incredible to see the jet driving down within the derecho complex.

    • Thanks for the comment, Dave, always appreciate it. I added a long 1-min animation with GLM overlaid. Very neat to watch the evolution of lightning activity with respect to cloud top feature trends.
