Traverse County Minnesota
|Initiation southwest of Wheaton, MN
|This was one on the most confusing
multi-cell storms I have ever been on.
Looks undercut and outflowish. We
have strong inflow at our backs at this
|Less than a minute and a half later, this
thing is spinning like a top and is tornado
warned by ABR now.
|7 minutes later it is undercut by the outflow
from a stronger cell to the west.
|It comes back to life once again with a
blockly lowering but notice the heavy
precip to the northwest.
|Starting to get ripped apart by outflow.
Notice the shelfy looking feature coming
into view. Best cell is just to the right.
|A minute and a half later it is ripped apart
for good this time.
|While we were watching the left cell, the
right spawned two landspout funnels which
never touched down. Lots of local on the
roads watching it.
|Lenticular looking shelf cloud as we call it a day. All of this action and not
one tornado or severe report for that matter. Just weird.
