Another big storm heading towards home yesterday
this tiny 800x600 size doesn't do it justice
Is this a hurricane level storm? in Sydney?
Wow, that's scary!
just a major thunderstorm :) several places had winds 75 - 100km/hr (40 - 60 miles/hr)
hi Evo ... yes WOW that was also the word out of the mouth of a lady that came out of the office block behind me I was standing in front of
she said " I saw you taking photo's and came outside to see what of ..... ( there was a pause, then I hear) ... WOW"
It also appears to have a funnel and then what we call a "skud" cloud to the left of the funnel.
they were both just skud cloud lowerings
OK Evo, now you have impressed me ;) you are a storm aficionado if you know the term skud cloud :)
non-stormchasers/met office people don't usually know that term
Gee.. like doors of hell opening
I live in Kansas, before I lived many years in Houston, TX, so, yes, I am into storms and tornadoes.
I just used that term, like 2 hours ago, looking out the office window, I described some clouds as scudding. I didn't know it was meteorological; I thought it was literary.
Haven't been in Kansas stormchasing since 2006, lack of funds have stopped more visits
cool, Dave ......
Over the years, there's been many a scud cloud mistaken as a tornadic funnel. People don't observe long enough to determine significant rotation etc
here's a crop of that area from the full sized image
