Storms are dynamic things! That is one of the most important lessons you can learn about storm observation.

This video follows the progress of storms over about 1 hour in Northeast New Mexico. We begin with a supercell that has begun to weaken and end with a developed line of storms.

That’s right, we go from a single rotating storm to wall of storms in this video! This is a pretty cool teaching lesson as we watch our initial storm shrivel but updrafts form everywhere and eventually organize into a line. And the bonus? THIS IS ALL IN 360 VIDEO!

Every storm will grow and change in time, nothing stays static forever! It is one of the draws to storm observation and photography — every moment is fleeting and you truly have to live in the moment to appreciate the scenes in front of you.
