Kintyre through a le… on October 4, 2007

Great mood in this vista-regards mossip

K.Csaba on October 4, 2007

Was a beginning of big storm in my city and the clouds was very low and very scary,moving very very fast.Thanks for your comments.


Dann Cianca on November 2, 2007

Were the clouds rotating? That looks like the bottom of good healthy updraft and maybe even mesocyclone.


K.Csaba on November 5, 2007

Hello Dann.This clouds isnt rotating,only the edge of the clouds was moving very fast and changing his shape.This clouds was very close to the ground and without precipitation.I think this was an LP supercells,bacause this type of supercell may be easily identifiable with "sculpted" cloud striations in the updraft base...etc.Looks you have some experience,I dont have,maybe because this is the first of this kind of storm in this region and I think we are lucky because this storm wasnt go in tornado.Thank you for the comment and for the visit.Greetings from Romania.

Hard to tell from the picture whether the storm was LP (low precipitation) or not. They are generally characterized by higher cloudbases and not a lot of precipitation reaching the ground. I would presume that the storm was a supercell based on the turbulence in the updraft ... guess it could be a squall line if taken from the right angle. You said the clouds were very close to the ground, so I'll wager that it wasn't an LP supercell and maybe more of a classic structure with a strong updraft. You can see very large hail out of such storms. Was this the case?

My experience comes from school (I'm a senior this year studying my meteorology major) and I also chase such storms as a hobby.

Thanks for sharing!

In a few minute I will post the first pictures,what I took before this pics,maybe that will help you and me,to understand what is this.In this storm wasn`t rain or hail,only a north side of storm was some precipitation and hail,from my city aprox 50 km.I will keep that pics only for a few hours and only for you.Cheers,Csaba.

The other pictures you have are of a shelf cloud which would be more likely with a squall line. As the line passed, you should have seen wind and rain, however.

Thanks Dann.Good luck in your study and good luck chasing storms,have funn.Cheers,Csaba.
