It’s Called A Haboob

Posted by Dan Satterfield

In case you have not seen the great haboob that hit Phoenix Tuesday night. It was caused by strong winds (over 55 knots) flowing out of thunderstorms . The video is pretty incredible. Scott Lindstrom has a great post showing the view from GOES of the Arizona storms as well with a nice MCV as a result. What’s an MCV? Read Scott’s post! Physicist Joe Romm has an interesting post (with more images) as well on Climate Progress.
