Caption: Supercell thunderstorm. This 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 (a mesocyclone) as well as a separate downdraft of cold air. Supercell thunderstorms are capable of producing tornadoes. This one produced baseball-sized hailstones. Photographed near Eads, Colorado, USA, on 15 July 2010.
