8 May 2013 Paducah, TX Storm

James Langford has been producing some stunning lapses lately. This one, captured in the northwest Texas plains, is a beautiful illustration of a storm, its updraft with tentacles beneath, exhaust, and intersecting flow traced by flat stratocu (heck, let's don't forget the rainbow!). From this perspective, anticyclonic circulation can be found due to the dynamical effects brought about by an updraft in a sheared environment. This is an atypical perspective, providing a great illustration of a storm from a potential left split view.
