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.
Dust Foot

Similar to the rain foot is a "dust foot," seen here spreading and curling upwards from left to right. An aircraft engaged in low-level operations should not venture into these rain or dust feet! Spotters should check out the area that has been affected (if possible) for any sign of damage. This was a multicell storm that also produced heavy rain and small hail.
