A perfect example of ingredients at work!

Satellite can give a great view about the ingredients needed for convection: instability, moisture, some lifting In the image there is an airmass of stratus clouds, with some inhibition (CIN) for convection. But there is a spot where some convergence at the surface (lifting) helped to overcome this CIN, a nice cell developed, and the outflow, symetric, produced some stable clear air around. Ian Bell found this great image in the internet.
