Supercells are rotating updrafts within severe thunderstorms; they’re big, and scary. They can appear anywhere in the world given the right meteorological conditions, but most times they appear in the Great Plains of the US, last generally 2-3 hours and they sometimes split in 2, with the two resulting storms going in opposite directions. The supercells usually produce huge amounts of hail, torrential rainfall, strong winds, and substantial downbursts and are often carriers of giant hail.
So scary yet unbelievably fascinating

Funnel clouds are so fun. I have a very interesting childhood story to go along with an image like this. Short version, my friends and I came so close to having it touchdown on our heads. I was about 9 maybe. Not sure. Too tired to go into detail but wow, what a sight to look up and see this right on top of you.
