Young Duke Wall Cloud

Along a persistent, ENE-WSW oriented convergence axis, the youngest occlusion of a cyclic, rather wet, classic supercell spun forth a small but vigorous mesocyclone, visually manifest in the form of this wall cloud. Although it displayed strong convergence and rising motions, only weak to moderate rotation appeared--never strong or tight enough for me to be concerned of imminent tornadogenesis. Still, throughout this cycle, the storm remained beautiful with a classically formed wall cloud.
