GLM MFA for Storm re-generation

GLM Minimum Flash Area showed some utility in boosting lead time for storm re-generation. The storm in the center of the first image had started to weaken a bit after moving off of the outflow boundary that initiated it.

The storm continues to show no new updraft development in the sat imagery as well as MFA product.

At 20:29 GLM MFA begins to indicate that there may be a new updraft forming as it interacts with a differential heating boundary/outflow from the leading storm.

Over the next 20 minutes the updraft continues to strengthen as the storm becomes more robust. The MFA led the visible satellite depiction of the new updraft by 2-4 min. This could be useful when trying to decide whether to continue warnings or not.
