RGB Air Mass Product (Future Capability)

As the hurricane is approaching Cape Lookout, NC, the RGB product shows evidence of synoptic-scale dry air on the south-southeast side of the circulation. Synoptic –scale dry air is present to the northwest on the periphery of the storm. This dry air is caught in the southwest inflow channel, effectively cutting off convective development by introducing stably stratified air.
