If there’s one thing 2018 seems to be doing right, its storm structure. After a year where it seemed like it was nearly impossible to get good storm structure (2017), 2018 has really delivered with some really good storm structure as we moved into May.
The sad reality is that the bases of all of these supercells are pretty high due to some meager moisture, so we aren’t exactly seeing tornado threats go up, but the storms themselves certainly look good for the camera.
This cell formed in a pretty decently sheared environment in the Northeast Texas Panhandle. We followed it from Miami to Canadian, Texas over an hour or so before the cap took it down into the early evening.
Oh and nothing bad actually happened. So that’s a positive.
