Wild Wyoming Cloud Wows Weatherwatchers

A phenomenal shot of a massive cloud Sunday near Clareton, Wyo., has been making the rounds on social media.

The photo was taken by the Basehunters storm chasers group, who are "committed to capturing the most unique and close-up tornado footage on the market," according to their Facebook page.

It shows the rotating updraft of a supercell thunderstorm over eastern Wyoming, according to Weather Channel meteorologist Jon Erdman.

Supercells are the largest, strongest and longest-lasting thunderstorms. They are most common on the Great Plains.

Known as a "low-precipitation" supercell, these types of storms seldom produce heavy rain or tornadoes, though they can produce large hail, Erdman said.

Basehunters also shared on Facebook Monday this image of an amazing cloud structure near Gurley, Neb.

That’s amazing. I’ve never seen anything like that. It looks otherworldly.

More evidence that climate change may very well be occuring, but it's G-D made climate change.

Reminiscent of the Ivy Mike H-bomb test, with that stem.

yep, global warming is occurring. It will be much warmer the next few months than it was the previous few months.

That was not a weather cloud . . . that was the mother ship contacting Sheila Lee Jackson with further instructions. That is all . . .
