Caption: Supercell thunderstorm over fields. 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. This storm produced hail the size of softballs. Photographed near Bismark, North Dakota, USA, on 19th July 2008.
