While heading west towards a distant supercell we encountered a newly developing storm near Lamesa that we followed for just over an hour.
The storm had several updraft bases that merged into one strong updraft
As we followed the storm, it produced a microburst
As the storm transformed it developed a striated base with a large inflow tail
as the inflow tail dissipated the storm began to look like a flying saucer and began to take on high precipitation characteristics.
