Thunderstorm Structure 101 | Weather
For those of you wondering what all that storm talk is about, well down below is what a t-storm is made of. It is simply an updraft that is tilted by the increase in wind speed as you go aloft. Once the storm hits the top of the atmosphere the clouds spread out away from the storm in what is known as the ANVIL. As that anvil spreads downstream from the top of the storm these crazy clouds form under it called MAMMATUS CLOUDS. Basically they are signs of extreme instability, just look at some of those pics down below!!!
We say a very nice anvil with partial mammatus earlier in midtown tonight, I took the picture down below.
Send me your photos to email@example.com and I will show them on the news at 10 and 11 tonight!!
