Caption: Supercell thunderstorm and tornado over fields on the outskirts of a town. A supercell thunderstorm is a severe long-lived storm within which the wind speed and direction changes with height. This produces a strong rotating updraft of warm air, known as a mesocyclone, and a separate downdraft of cold air. Photographed near LaGrange, Wyoming, USA, on 5th June 2009.
