Detailed Satellite Imagery of Severe Storm

A powerful storm swept across the Midwestern U.S. late on June 12, 2012 and is continuing to move across the Mid-Atlantic. Around 0700z (3am EDT), the Suomi NPP satellite passed over the storm as the most intense areas were along the Ohio-West Virginia-Pennsylvania border.

The line of strong storm activity associated with this bow echo system is seen at the leading edge. Other pockets of convection and overshooting cloud tops can be seen across Pennsylvania and in southern Maryland.
