Wow, those pictures are amazing that wall cloud was one of the best I've seen. I bet you had some downbursts with that cloud. How big of hail did you get with this storm and how did you get so close?

Thanks for pointing that out diablo. I just saw them over the web...didn't really pay attention to where they came from but thought that the guys here would like them. I'll pay more attention next time... ;)

Very nice pics indeed... ;)
Yes Jason, there was a strong downdraft with the storm. The RFD(rear flank downdraft) was very strong. Radar in Omaha quite close to this storm was indicating 100mph winds for a good while before tornadogenisis. It's pretty common with tornadic storms. The most interesting thing about this storm was how quiet it seemed. Nearly all the lightning activity was well downstream in the anvil. Miles ahead of the storm lighting was popping away at the ground. This is likely due to the very strong winds aloft(100knts at 300mb) shearing the convection well downstream.

Don't supercell's form in a jet streak, because that's an area of sufficent mixing, especially on the right side because that's were upper level divergence is aloft as opposed to subsidence on the left side. Guess it depends on the way you orient yourself! You take great picture's that's for sure, I can't imagine experincing a downburst of a 100mph. Haven't even experinced a hurricane, I'm thinking that won't be to far off the way the season's going!
