PHOTOGENIC WALL CLOUD RECENTLY OBSERVED JUST TO THE WEST OF ENID, OKLAHOMA! (credit: Extreme Chase Tours)
DISCUSSION: As the primary low-pressure system which has helped to trigger most of the strong thunderstorms across the Plains states continues this afternoon continues to slowly slide eastward with time, the severe weather threat will persist! As observed in the video below (courtesy of the Extreme Chase Group (@ExtrmChaseTours)), there appeared to be a distinctly rotating wall-cloud base only a few minutes ago. This is likely due to the close proximity of this convection to the triple point (i.e., the part of a given low-pressure system where there is an intersection of the associated warm, cold, and occluded front) of the aforementioned primary low-pressure system.
