Tornadic supercell thunderstorm
Tornadic supercell thunderstorm. Bolts of cloud- to-cloud lightning in a supercell thunderstorm at sunset. A tornado is seen forming at bottom centre. A supercell thunderstorm is a severe long- lived storm within which the wind speed and direction changes with height. This produces a strong rotating updraft of warm air, known as a mesocyclone, and a separate downdraft of cold air. Tornadoes may form in the mesocyclone, in which case the storm is classified as a tornadic supercell thunderstorm. The storms also produce torrential rain and hail. Photographed on 10 June 2004 in Red Cloud, Nebraska, USA.
