20, 2014 Memphis Supercell
Storm over Memphis, TN
Juston Drake and Simon Brewer
documented a tornado-warned supercell thunderstorm over Memphis, TN. This
day had an obvious forecast, but with two targets hundreds of miles apart.
One region expected to get supercells and possibly tornadoes was over Illinois,
the other over the southern Mississippi Valley. It was a difficult decision,
but we decided to go after the southern target. We took a position in Northwest
Mississippi. A line of cells fired to our west over Northeast LA and eastern
AR, some of the cells were developing short-lived mesocyclones. We intercepted
a more isolated supercell with a wall cloud over Memphis, TN. The storm
showed decent structure, but was having problems with instability. Several
tornadoes developed in the northern target. A supercell and wall cloud wasnt
too bad of a severe storm chase to begin 2014.
