Actually Jimmy I would think that the shear was a more key ingredient here...its been missing for much of the season and every time it pops its head up suddenly there are supercells.

I never commented on the shear - my suggestion was that steep lapse rates led to disorganised storms to explode and rapidly become severe and I guess combined with shear was able to rotate quite quickly.

Im a space of 15 minutes, a right mover developed rapid organisation as shown in my series of photographs.

This is by far the supercell outbreak of the season.
