Old Duke Wall Cloud

The young wall cloud quickly aged as precipitaiton from the rear of the hook began wrapping into the adjoining occlusion-downdraft surge, shooting stable air into a western and southern crescent of this circulation's inflow and eroding the wall cloud. In fact, a more ancient occlusion--manifest as a rain-wrapped wall cloud farther W (background), outlasted its successor. A mesocyclone never should witness the demise of its own descendents. The entire storm became infused with precip from its own cores, as well as from upshear mergers, and evovled rather quickly into a raging, HP wind and ice machine.
