[small_button text="Follow Andy" title="Cool Button" url="https://www.facebook.com/SevereWeatherAustralia" align="left" target="_blank"] The smallest most discrete LP Supercell Thunderstorm I've chased over the years. This from November 25th 2013 near Stapylton, Queensland Australia. Brisbane's doppler radar is located on the hill in the distance beneath the rotation/base in this photo.  This thunderstorm lasted over an hour and was still producing 2cm hailstones (pictured right) at the time of the image. So small.. yet so beautiful.

This is from the same series i posted last time. This one i think it shows the main lightning cell but more importantly the rotating cell to the bottom right that generated strong winds. And it almost appears the top of the rotating cell is being sucked into the larger one. 25th Jan 2014 facing Boonah Australia in Queensland.

This was the second low-precipitation supercell of that day, which shortly after taking this photo, produced a brief rope tornado right before the sun set. Best structure I have personally seen in my six years of chasing.

Lightning Storm from yesterday morning 29/01/15. Taken up on the roof of house with a Canon 650 SLR with 30 second exposure. What a storm!

On August 4, 2013 a trailing stratiform MCS moved hundreds of kilometers from Switzerland, southern Germany into Czechia. We achieved this MCS near Amberg in eastern Bavaria with some strong wind gusts and heavy rain.
