GOES-16 (GOES-East) “Red” Visible (0.64 µm), Low-level Water Vapor (7.3 µm), Mid-level Water Vapor (6.9 µm) and Upper-level Water Vapor (6.2 µm) images (above) showed the southward propagation of an undular bore across Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas on 10 July 2019. This feature appeared to play a role in convective initiation over the Texas Panhandle — and this thunderstorm produced hail and strong winds (SPC storm reports).
