The Black Sea Breeze - as a trigger

Visible channel (sat24.com) from EUMETSAT. The sea breeze acts like a lifting mechanism for convection initiation in Dobrudja. The general circulation in SE Romania is from South, and will produce propagation toward the South, and there is a strong low level flux of moisture from the sea to Moldova. Severe weather is expected in the Eastern half of Romania, several supercells.

Later: a supercell splits: on satellite (two red circles), and radar (zoom on the SE part of Romania). Is nice to observe the huge dimensions of the anvil.
