The cold front in northern MB of May 31, 2005

What happened

On May 31, 2005, a cold front was slumping slowly southward through northern Manitoba. The cold front in this case is marked by cool, dry air, and is easy to find on the visible satellite animation. As soon as cumulus clouds develop, it is clear where the cold front boundary is; the cumulus become a bit more congested along the front, and behind (north of) it there are no cumuli whatsoever.
