Outflow Spark

Most of my first-ever “monsoon chase” trip in 2017 was inactive storm-wise, save the first three and last three days.  However, the storms that did happen and the days between, spent in the amazing Utah and northern Arizona national parks, made it all worthwhile.   This final storm of the trip had been a photogenic supercell that became elevated atop outflow from a complex to the northeast.  That complex’s  core partly is visible at distant right.   Still, as it had a few hours before and a hundred miles farther northwest, this storm was good for some daytime lightning, and a blast of its own outflow that was refreshingly cooling for August in New Mexico’s High Plains mesa country.
