Only looks that way because the vertical shear is lifting it ahead of the base

Storm cell is unimpressive on radar but very unstable in the mid levels thus the loud thunder and lightning

Holyshit, if that is any indication of what is coming later, we are really in for it!!!

Wow, 60k feet? That rivals the best of the cells we saw back on the plains!!

Lightning must have struck a structure here, there are now several fire trucks passing by.

The cell approaching Stevens Pass has now officially been tagged as a Supercell, SPC was right in giving our locale' a severe tag for today and tonight, VERY RARE for us to have Supercells in this part of the country

Amazing. So I wonder why no severe thunderstorm watch for the area, given the obvious threat out there?

B/c NONE of the cells moving out over the lowlands are severe yet

That would explain why no severe warning, but I'd have thought there should have been a watch issued, since the ingredients seem to be in place for a few severe storms at some point.

Joos!!! First a disclaimer. I was skeptical yesterday... at least for t-storm development where I live on the coast. You think you all are deprived of lightning? We go years without a real storm. I think the WA coast is the least likely place for thunderstorms in the US (seriously, pretty sure I read that). But we got HAMMERED last night in Aberdeen. I've seen great storms in the midwest and mid-Atlantic, and last night rivaled all but the most impressive ( I was in the storm that spawned the Spencer, SD tornado. Google it.) All this to say great job, sir, and thanks for the headsup.

I drove from Capitol Hill to Bellingham yesterday. Once you got north of Skagit county, it was nice.
