There are different breeds of thunderstorms each with their own characteristics There are single-celled storms often weak and short-lived Multi-celled storms sporadic and unorganized and and squalls organizing into dramatic lines they can stretch hundreds of miles But the mother of all thunder storms is the supercell Supercells are the least common mode of storms and Their defining character is a deep persistently rotating updraft called a mesocyclone Super cells are often referred to as rotating thunderstorms This rotating nature enables them to generate torrential rainfall and severe winds Intense and continuous lightning activity Enormous hail And it’s super cells that are responsible for producing the majority of the world’s violent tornadoes Supercells can occur all over the world but in one location they turn up with alarming frequency Tornado alley in the United States Fewer than 30 percent of super cells produce tornadoes And scientists are still trying to understand why one supercell produces violet tornadoes And another does not Supercells come in three different classifications. The low precipitation supercell or LP The classic supercell And the high precipitation supercell or HP where heavy rainfall shroud much of the internal storm structure They often form as one mode and transition to another Once a supercell is on the roll it can dominate the atmosphere persisting for hours and hours Sometimes the atmosphere generates mixed modes Storms with characteristics of other storm types Squalls with super cells embedded in their lines or hybrid cells with both the squall and supercell structures No two super cells are exactly the same With their explosive energy and wind shear sculpted beauty Being in their presence can be captivating or terrifying. Or both. They are a dream scenario for nature photographers And time-lapse photography truly captures their beauty the mesocyclone twists the supercell into dramatic sky scapes. A storm that resembles stacked plates With tiers like upside down wedding cake Or the alien invading mothership With the most powerful supercells time-lapse photography isn’t necessary to capture their intense churning The clouds move so fast the storm doesn’t appear from this world

    I’ve seen a super cell once it was gorgeous. Terrifying. But gorgeous.

  40. Some High Voltage Channel says:

    Not enough people respect the beauty and power of storms, big and small. I mean come on!! These are thousands and often MILLIONS of tons of water vapor, floating! And if the conditions are good, the friction can cause voltages of +1,000,000,000 and 40,000 amps! That's Gigawatts of power! And oh yeah, we can't forget, these can become beasts and drop down up to a recorded 8 INCH ICE BALLS AT +100 MILES PER HOUR! And sometimes, if they are feeling frisky, they can drop swirling tubes of condensate, drilling around into the ground like a blind construction worker with a saw.

  41. Ed Jimenez says:

    Terrifyingly beautiful. Jaw literally dropped during the first super cell examples!?

  42. Giacomo Rapuzzi says:

    so this is what i saw this year in august: first storm: august 2 green hell severe wind with little rain. next storm: august 7 big black cloud and all of the sudden you see only leaves and branches then its over and you see a supercell. damage was 4 trees down in my yard then hundreds more in the area a wind turbine exploded and an aqueduct collapsed. next storm: august 12 caught us while shopping green lightning hell and forced everyone around to stop, basically the same as august 7 but this time you could see more. damage was few trees down on the roads the rest was on farmland. the rest of the month was really quiet after that sudden spike of severe storms.

    My theory is the faster the cell is turning, the more likely the tornado. If you really look closely you can see storms with fast and destructive tornadoes are rotating at a faster pace.
