Caption: Timelapse footage of a developing supercell system, showing inflow of low-level clouds and a developing thunderhead (anvil) seen through the clouds. Supercell thunderstorms are characterised by a rotating cyclonic updraft, and they frequently produce hail and heavy rain, lightning and sometimes tornadoes. Filmed in the USA on a spring afternoon.
