National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) provides the following explanation of a supercell thunderstorm:
“Supercell thunderstorms are a special kind of single cell thunderstorm that can persist for many hours.
They are responsible for nearly all of the significant tornadoes produced in the U.S. and for most of the hailstones larger than golf ball size. Supercells are also known to produce extreme winds and flash flooding.
Supercells are highly organized storms characterized updrafts that can attain speeds over 100 miles per hour, able to produce extremely large hail and strong and/or violent tornadoes, downdrafts that can produce damaging outflow winds in excess of 100 mph – all of which pose a high threat to life and property.”
