Striated Supercell, Bucklin, KS

A striated supercell over Bucklin, KS. May 9th, 2015.


After being relatively quiet for most of Saturday across western Kansas, thunderstorms finally began to reach severe limits shortly before midnight. This particular storm had a Tornado Warning issued for it at one point, but that was before I was able to catch up to the storm.

The storm was still rotating at this point, but the rotation was not strong or low enough to cause a tornado. Instead, I set up to photograph and intercept the storm as it passed by.
