Killer Supercell

Uploaded by: Zormsk

Sunday April 2, 2006

Russellville, AR (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Many of you no doubt saw on the news the devastation wreaked by a supercell thunderstorm that spawned in Arkansas and then moved into Tennessee near Memphis unleashing tornados, levelng towns and killing several people. This storm formed to the east of us here in Russellville and by that time, we had entered the dry clear air behind the front. I was out and about and saw above Crow Mountain, the top of the supercell. Then, it was about halfway between Little Rock and Memphis TN, so I was viewing it from nearly 150 miles away. The supercell blew up high enough that its anvil top was clearly illuminated by the setting sun as it flattened out on reaching the lower stratosphere. This was an awesome storm that lit up our eastern horizon with lightning (but no thunder) well into the night, as it went about the tragic business of killing Tennesseeans.
