Squall Line in the Wichita Mountains

Squall Line in the Wichita Mountains

Outflow is supposed to be the ultimate enemy of the storm chaser; but it can be quite beautiful! Here, the turbulent underside of an arcus cloud passes over the Wichita Mountains of southwest Oklahoma, with the precipitation core of a squall line visible in the background. The bright green fields of early May and the brown granite of the mountains contrast the roiling slate-blue underbelly of the arcus.
