Gorgeous Perspective of Shelf Cloud over Rovigio, Italy (credit: Tornado in Italia via Meteo Europe)
DISCUSSION: Only just a few days ago, there was a weak area of low pressure which moved through portions of very impressive thunderstorm developed and through areas in and around the city of Rovigio, Italy. As it progressed through this part of Italy, it did not disappoint all of the people who had the privilege of watching it evolve during the course of it's lifetime. As seen in the time-lapsed storm footage attached above, this storm quickly developed a shelf cloud as denoted by the lowering of the cloud deck near the center of the image. You can also note how there were multiple instances in which rain shafts revolved around the center point of rotation associated with this particular storm. Although this particular storm is shown from a time-lapsed perspective, you can still clearly denote the layered structure of the outflow associated with this storm. Hence, it was certainly quite the site for all people who had the opportunity to witness this intense convective storm.
