[Part 3 of 4] A relative gap in the near-ground precipitation curtains certainly was convenient for continued monitoring of the Slapout tornado's surface whereabouts. Its condensation form began to look rather tubular, its visible form stretched vertically and still bending with height back into the mid-level mesocyclone, as the moat of occlusion-downdraft scouring of surrounding clouds continued. Make all the jokes you wish about the tornado's apparent shape at this stage, but don't blame the photographer. Actually, the tip more truly resembled a real funnel.
