Weather service explains storm cloud Print E-mail

Cloudy with a chance of…

     This unusual cloud formation was observed cruising through the region on Sunday evening, July17. This picture was taken from Kidder Ridge, looking toward Grangeville.

     According to satellite imagery, this storm was moving to the NNE around 20 to 30 mph in a fairly sheared environment where the winds affecting the upper part of the  storm were much stronger that the winds affecting the lower part of the storm, according to John Livingston of the NOAA in Spokane, Wash.

     “The cloud structure that dominates the photo is most likely the bottom of a thunderstorm. In the opinion of the majority of the staff on hand there is no rotation seen or implied,” he said. “The arching structure in the center of the photo is most likely produced by the strong updraft  feeding warm moist air into the storm.

     “So in conclusion I would say this is a photo of a developing thunderstorm in a fairly sheared environment and this shear accounts for the striated cloud formation. The other ragged low clouds closer to the photographer are obscuring the upper parts of the storm.”
