" Unstable over Burks Falls"

Some cumulus clouds developed with daytime heating in a westerly flow aloft. I presume this flow was associated with the katabatic (inactive) portion of the warm front. There were some floccus clouds as well revealing the instability present in the warm air mass. The warm front was evidently very close to Burks Falls! The surface air certainly felt hot and sticky. The weather was setting up to turn cooler with the arrival of a cold front and thunderstorms.
