Storm Anatomy Diagram: April 8, 2015 Supercell

0 60

Today’s storm anatomy diagram video takes us to April 8, 2015 near Seiling, Oklahoma as a supercell moved over the Oklahoma countryside.

There’s a few things we want to point out in this video, here’s a few of the highlights in text form:
-Not all lowered areas are necessarily tornadic, but should be watched closely.
-The low clouds make identifying the updraft hard to spot so following low level storm trends is important to noting if a storm is getting stronger or weaker.
-Transparent precip cores don’t mean anything is falling, big hail could be in there!
-Ultimately, a shrinking storm is typically a weakening storm.

Check out the full video! We’ll have a new storm anatomy diagram next week!
