Yesterday the Daily Blither had a nearly full page photo of the funnel cloud seen near Bicester?
The newspaper then grandly announced that the 'giant hail and tornado' were from the supercell that was in the area and backed up the story with an alleged quote from a professional meteorologist wh supplied the sort of general info' you could get from Wikipeadia if you looked up 'tornado' or 'supercell
my question is - was this a supercell? because when the papers start producing such articles it's usually a load of tosh and I would like to know what actually was the situation on that day
Several things - Bren knows his stuff with regard to storms, and the quote was spot on. The info you can get on Wikipedia is excellent these days - well worth a read if you want to understand supercells. And yes, all the available evidence suggests it was a supercell.
