Routing around storms

We had a line of storms move through and it just looked cool where the various aircraft flew around the cells. It looks like a couple of low SWA liners had to hold for a bit while a cell moved over KABQ.

This is what used to happen in Melbourne when rain or a storm slowed down the landings at YMML.

This was late morning on 2 Feb this year.

Since the pandemic and the borders being closed there aren’t enough arriving aircraft to form a queue.

Same view, same time of day today but no storm

I live closer to an airport served mostly by cargo flights (Amazon, FedEx). It is amazing sometimes what they land in. I am sure it is safe but with no one to complain in the back they land in storms that most passenger flights will avoid.
