Extreme Mircroburst
associated with a supercell storm

Photograph by: Moller

This is an extreme microburst event in a supercell storm, looking west. Although no wall cloud was present, baseball hail was occurring in the precipitation shaft on the right, with a rotating updraft base in the center of the photograph. A very rapid right to left movement was visible with the rain foot. "Guesstimations" were that winds were above 80 MPH in the microburst.
