Sky after Supercell


Shortly after a supercell thunderstorm chugged through Dallas County on Wednesday, the sky delighted us with golds, grays, bright white and clear blue hues.

We were able to follow the supercell on radar from its formation in east-central Mississippi through its quick progression across central Alabama. It spawned several rotations that led to tornado warnings and sporadic wind damage. Quarter to silver-dollar sized hail rained down at our house, but other nearby areas reported golf-ball to baseball-size ice.

Check out all the other skies participating in today's Skywatch Friday.

A cloudy day in Selma town,
Had me low, had me down,
Till I discovered the sky,
No lie, no lie!

Thanks for stopping by my blog for Skywatch Friday.

Hope to get to Selma this spring on way to Cleveland and Natchez, MS.
