Two Funnels

(Part 3 of 3) As the original condensation funnel lifted, another formed separately to its north, but from the same rain-wrapped mesocyclone. The second funnel cloud (at right) lasted several more minutes after the first one disappeared; but it got no lower than this and had no evidence of debris. Within half an hour, the HP (heavy precipitation) storm had merged into a dense line of thunderstorms, losing visual supercell characteristics.
