March 20

Spring arrived in style today with a nice little convective explosion east of Red Deer this afternoon. Conditions came together suddenly at 1pm, with a few nice aggressive towering cumulus going up just east of Red Deer, then slowly moving east over the next few hours. By 3pm a line of 3 cells had begun to look like supercells with Anvil tops, some overshooting, even a back-sheared anvil. Not sure what was falling out of them as they are a good 30 miles away in these photos. A pretty nice display for June, nevermind March.

    Nice photos Pat. Looks like areas around Red deer or south of Edmonton had the best convection. I got a few towers, but nothing cool like this. I can’t wait for storm season to roll in.
