Gnarly Sky Telegraphs Meteorological Air “Bombs.”
Posted this on Tumblr. Sharing here, too. Hey, WordPress, Yahoo is easier:
Gnarly sky under a T-storm.
Rain evaporating in dry air on the way down.
Dramatic, ragged cloud structures.
Violent wind “air bombs,” gusty downbursts up to 60mph or more possible.
Same pic using photoshop feature “inverted.”
But evaporating rain on the way down rocked my house, like an air bomb.
Airplane travel impacted into Denver International Airport, where a Severe Weather Warning was issued by the National Weather Service.
Air “bombs” – downbursts – are both gnarly and dangerous.
A sight to see.
So, now: seeing is knowing.
