NOTE: We've guessed that you're not using a client that supports colored tables and have tried to compensate. Low graphics mode looks much better on clients that do... we recommend switching to Netscape 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Tornadic supercell thunderstorms can develop in squall lines. Tornadoes (non-supercell) can also appear in developing lines in which the parent storms exhibit little rotation.
