Squall line in the Brunei skies
June 16, 2020
The weather phenomenon, squall line, was observed in Brunei last Sunday around 7.30am, stated the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department (BDMD) yesterday.
Squall line is a band of vigorous convective activity, often with heavy thunderstorms and strong wind. The leading edge of a squall line is often made of arcus cloud. Two common types of arcus cloud are shelf cloud and roll cloud. Shelf cloud is a supplementary feature of a cumulonimbus (thunderstorms) cloud.
