Weak triggered convection at John Amos

With a little instability and a weak cap Sunday afternoon, the John Amos plant was able to open a small hole in the cap to allow this narrow updraft to form. These views are from Dunbar and South Charleston looking west at the plant, about 8 miles away. Some storms fired up near Sutton, but weak upper flow kept anything from getting organized. If you remember from past blog posts, the John Amos plant has been known to trigger full-size, stationary showers and thunderstorms in similar atmospheric environments.
