Putting words and lines over the pictures of a supercell thunderstorm in the Wichita Mountains from last Spring.
This wet classic supercell was a cool one to witness and offers some items to look for when it comes to tornado formation.

This storm never produced, but its strongest low level rotation was much closer than initially thought.
Let’s dive in and explore this one together!
