Outflow!

LaCrosse, WI NEXRAD imagery indicates a strong line of thunderstorms that is putting out a nice outflow boundary (blue line). Surface observations agree nicely with the location of the boundary, notice the southerly wind to the south of the boundary.

This morning's RADAR is showing an outflow boundary (the thin blue line, note the wind shift). An outflow boundary is the furthest extent that thunderstorm processed air has been pushed away from the storm. These boundaries are important focusing mechanisms for further thunderstorm development.
