Default July 11, 2010 Middlesex Wall cloud

This was around London and Dorchester, the wall cloud would have started around 6:15 or so. This was around the time I left, it was at 28,000ft and looked like it was finaly exploding visually outside as I got to watch the updraft build.



It was around this time the funnel formed so very annoying, here are shots of the tower building that caused it







Between now and the time it took for the next shot (not very long) it produced a tiny little funnel as the tower was in the early phases. Now the storm was larger and had a faded but nicely sheared anvil, this scan is around the time the wall cloud began to form







Now the wall cloud began to take shape matter of nothing to solid in less than 5 minutes!
One minute I'm driving through some trees looking at this


Few minutes later that





I then take some video and take some time to get closer, by then it had changed shape but had lots of motion still





This cool little thing had laminer sides and just hung around for a bit




Around now the storm began to die fast there was still some cool structure and motions going on underneath the base



The clouds on the right were intersecting with the ones on the left right above the base







After this image within ten minutes the storm had become an elevated junker and this base was gone!


Here is a video with my crummy point and shoot camera

Thanks! It was a surprising treat that's for sure, if If I had left 15 min sooner I would have quality shots of that little landspout funnel
