During some Winters, a band of clouds to the south becomes the predominant 
feature.  Check out today's IR image.

As of just before noon, the time-lapse animation shows very gradual motion 
of the entire thing to the north, so I'm not so sure anymore that it's 
going to be photometric tonight as you head into the southern part of the 
state.

This one shows just how far the subtropical jet clouds extend to the west.
