The Wall Cloud Wall


Bifurcated Wall Cloud

Several in a series of rapidly-rotating but short-lived wall clouds formed in this northern part of a merged supercell pair, each one undercut by precipitation before it could produce a tornado. In this case, the occlusion downdraft cut the wall cloud nearly in half (bifurcation), though more wall clouds would form shortly. Diffused sunset light from the distance cast the background downdraft precipitation a warm bronze tone.
