On June 18, 2008 Mike Hollingshead from “Extreme Instability” documented the advent of the weirdest storm:giant waves of rolling thick fog, cresting over the landscape….
With his exclusive permission, here are some images of this unreal event.

Two weather fronts converging at the same time… coming in very fast, with a deafening wind:
Don’t miss another recent storm hunting by Mike Hollingshead. Here are some examples of extremely low-hanging shelf clouds, created by a monster supercell off Yankton, South Dakota. (it spawned a tornado, too) See more on this page.
