Summer Mid-Latitude Cyclone in Central Canada:

GOES East captured this image of a strong low pressure system moving through central Canada on July 15, 2018. The storm, which formed southwest of the Hudson Bay along the border of Canada's Manitoba and Saskatchewan provinces, brought rain to the Canadian prairies as well as cooler temperatures. In Winnipeg, Manitoba, temperatures reached 91°F (32.8°C) on July 14, but dropped to 77 degrees (25°C) the following day, according to data from Environment Canada. The leading edge of the storm also extended into the northern U.S., where a cold front in the Upper Midwest ushered in cooler, less humid air.

The comma-shaped cloud pattern in this satellite imagery is a classic example of a mid-latitude cyclone, which forms along the boundaries between warm and cold air masses. While this type of storm rarely forms over the continental U.S. in the middle of summer, we do see them at higher latitudes, including Canada, where polar air masses have more strength. An interesting feature of this image is the presence of smoke plumes south and east of the storm's center of circulation. The smoke is originating from wildfires burning in southeastern Manitoba and western Ontario. 

This geocolor enhanced imagery was created by NOAA's partners at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere. The GOES East geostationary satellite, also known as GOES-16, provides high-resolution imagery of major weather events, including mid-latitude cyclones, tropical storms, hurricanes, and wildfires.
