The Majestic Supercell
Gotebo Supercell Sunset
A March splendor, this supercell moved slowly ENE from near Rocky OK to N of Gotebo and beyond, almost reaching Oklahoma City well after dark, then being entrained around another, later-developing supercell. The relatively slow storm motion and outstanding cloud definitions reminded us of a June storm, and was a welcome break from the frantic chases and brief observing stops that typically characterize this time of year. During the daylight hours, it kept spinning along with occasional hail and non-tornadic wall clouds like the one shown here. The setting sun splashed a dollop of color to the scene, on what was becomng an excellent season for southern Plains storm-structure aficionados.
