The Majestic Supercell
Saint Jo Spinner
(Part 4 of 4) In the final daylight cycle of a long-lived supercell, wild striations arched from nearly overhead, southwestward to what was left of the storm's updraft base. The spectacular scene strongly resembled another strikingly banded, decaying storm I witnessed in the Nebraska Sandhills a few years before. The Nebraska storm was outflow-dominant and not an identifiable supercell at the time; but the visual resemblance is amazing, despite the differences in processes and geography. This storm seemed a far cry or a world away from the flatter, high based supercell of a mere couple of hours earlier!
