Not much happening storm chase wise, with just  a chance of garden variety thunderstorms tomorrow and not much else this week.  So, in the interest of keeping my sanity I’m noticing other features such as the surface observation map above.  The blue line – which I inserted – is roughly the position of the Chesapeake Bay breeze front as it moves westward from the cooler water over the warmer land.  Visual evidence of this is shown on this visible satellite shot:

Such features have been known to fire off convection in our area when the synoptic conditions are right (light winds, plenty of instability, etc.).  Unfortunately the convective conditions aren’t ripe at the moment so this is just a noticeable curiosity.
