Fine detail can be seen in all of the thunderstorm anvils, including overshooting tops and downstream cirrus plumes. The flanking lines of the Sheridan Lake and Rolla storms are visible since the satellite viewing angle sees beneath the anvils. Different appearances and patterns of the lower clouds can give an indication of the low-level flow and stability.
In particular, look at the north/south oriented lines of clouds in OK and KS. Here the cloud lines are oriented parallel to the low-level winds. Cloud lines oriented in this manner are known as cloud streets, and are indicative of a relatively unstable air mass.
