Caption: The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) image for June 30 shows areas of intense convection centered off the New Jersey coast and another, less intense, system over Iowa-Indiana-Ohio. The area off the New Jersey coast is no longer a rapidly moving linear front. The near-surface atmospheric temperatures over the South and Midwest have decreased by 10 to 15 F in most areas. AIRS is an instrument that flies aboard NASA's Aqua satellite.
