Marshall County, Alabama Meso

This is a brief time lapse video I took Friday April 11, 2008 of a mesocyclone that was producing two separate EF0 tornadoes 6-10 miles to the north of my location while I was filming. You cannot see them in this video due to the small size of the tornadoes, the distance, and the rain.

Great video, Mike! Was that wall cloud rotating in the wrong direction, or is that my imagination?? I love time lapse.

Part of it does look that way. I wonder if that is an illusion. Maybe it's some of the clouds on the outside edges moving along with the mean flow while the interior clouds are rotating counter clockwise?

Thanks for sharing Mike!

Doesn't seem like an illusion, Mike. Must be multidirectional shear, huh? Cool capture.

Mike?! Meso Mike?! Wow, he does know how to use a computer! Welcome. ;O)
