The Leoti supercell is well known amongst chasers for its various photogenic qualities. This storm formed in an environment just supportive of supercells. It maximized the shear available by turning right against the mean flow, increasing helicity and producing tornadoes along with some incredible structure. The directional shear on this day was pretty intense, so a few small enhancements to the wind field with deviant motion was all it took to really make this day shine.
