SAWDIS:  Now this is a very interesting satellite image captured by Nic Cronje of Nelspruit at 01h43 this morning. Five individual thunderstorms are visible on this image.  I am hesitant to call it spotty "convection" storms as I have no detailed infrared satellite image to confirm this. However cumulonimbus clouds (thunderstorms) with possible cirrus blowoff is visible. It also appears that there could be strong upper level winds (Not confirmed.)  Thanks Nic, for this very interesting satellite image.  This is surely a rare satellite image.
