There have been some amazing examples of "Tule Fog" in the valley in California this week. Meteorologist Alex Rabb explains the phenomenon in this video:

And yes, she said "Tule Frog" in the middle, but we'll forgive her. I meant to send her this extra high-res satellite image of the fog on Wednesday. This extreme resolution was captured by MODIS, which takes an extremely-high-res photo of the U.S. once a day.


Here's a full-res detail showing the southern end of the fog and some clouds. Wow.
