Aug 13/08 Stormchase with Wall cloud near London
 
This chase took me to the NE Edge of the city then straight east almost after that.

Storms were coming in from Sarnia, they were in a mess as I arrived all jumbled together, isolated areas of rotation were occurring
though here and there.

As I first arrived looking south

small swirls were occurring all over

Growing base to my south

Small area of rotation overhead

Small RFD like clear slot cutting into the north side of the base to my south

Causes tightened area of rotation for a short while.

I now head east, the base to my south falls apart and something interesting happens to the east of me where I was headed very fast from a high rain free base

Out of nowhere this scud forms in seconds

In no time it looks like this

A large rain free base was building to my immediate NE it had some cool fingers forming and dissipating

I needed to get some distance

It began to go Hp sadly.... Here was a inflow tail on the southeast side of the base

Here's looking more north another core was crashing into the storm now you can see it on the left

Another shot of the inflow tail, Many red cg's were coming down nearby me between me and this view making picture taking a dangerous affair

The storm then lost all visibility so I decided to head back west and see whats going on with this messy cell, its midlevel was messy looking but the core had a decent rain foot. Soon some scud began pouring out

This is Looking NW roughly

It then formed into a rotating wall cloud, I was pretty surprised how fast it formed and dissipated all in about ten minutes

After the wall cloud fell apart I called it a day
