I posted 2 images from our incredible storm that blew though Frisco, TX yesterday. One I believed to be a tornado forming on the front edge of the wall cloud http://www.clouds365.com/year2/4-25-11 and in the middle of the storm, a very powerful Cumulonimbus wall cloud http://www.clouds365.com/year2/4-25-11-part-2. I watched the incoming wall cloud rotating and pick up speed as it approached. The temperature dropped about 20 degrees in only seconds and it started to rain large raindrops when I took the sequence below, right after I witnessed the funnel cloud. You can see remnants of it in the first 2 images. I wish now I would have filmed or shot a time lapse. This progression only took a couple of mins. I had to get out of there!
