Hot Lightning and Tornado

Hot Lightning and Tornado "Lookalike"

In New Mexico storms, the action can get wild and intense! I was glad to be sitting ringside, instead of in the ring getting pummeled. This supercell flung frequent, bright, hot lightning strikes, along with severe outflow and hail. The lower funnel-shaped cloud with apparent "debris" beneath actually was a non-rotating scud mass, situated behind a chaotic precipitation shaft. The storm not only survived its own outflow heaving, but developed spectacular vertical structure an hour later.
