Summer Storm Cell 1

Storms 'n' Stars

The storm cell that approached from Cedar Rapids from the northwest on Tuesday evening, July 9, 2013 was so isolated it appeared as a stormy oasis in an otherwise clear night sky. These images look west from Bowman Woods Park from 10:32-10:41 PM. Note the "layered cake" or "flying saucer" updraft structure prominent in all three images.
