Storm Photo of the Day 10/26/14

Alfalfa Funnel  Storms began to develop over SC and WC Oklahoma around noon March 21, 2012 as clear skies allowed for low level heating under cold air aloft.  The storm that produced this funnel organized SSW of Alfalfa, Oklahoma and as it strengthened organized a rather well-defined mesocyclone.  Shortly after 1:30 pm about 5 miles W of Alfalfa it produced this funnel which lasted 10 minutes or so and appeared to touch down briefly.  The ground was very wet, so there wasn't much dust, but I observed weeds, grass and other debris in a ground circulation even though the tornado never fully condensed.
