Watch this storm EVAPORATE right in front of storm chasers!

Sometimes when we are documenting storms, the atmosphere changes very quickly towards sunset to make conditions not as favorable for storm formation or sustenance. This is caused by what we call a capping inversion, or a layer of warmer and drier air aloft. Storms need warm and moist air to continually be lifted upwards to fuel their severe weather, but when that warm and moist air hits hotter and drier air, it quits rising. Visually the result is what you see in this video, a smoothing and narrowing storm updraft that eventually just disappears before our very eyes! #thunderstorm #weather #nature #science #Oklahoma #supercell #lpsupercell
