Tornado near Ballarat – 20th April 2011

Tags:

I observed a persistant and somewhat organised cell north of Melbourne late yesterday arvo with a consolidated base, multi-directional inflow bands in the low and mid levels, some mid-level striations and the occasional short lived horizontal funnel from the mid-levels, especially in the early stages of development.  Took some pics and posted a few here:

Then this morning I was sent this link to images and report of a tornado near Ballarat:

I note that some of the pics appear to have been photoshopped.
