June 23, 2006 Agate, NE supercell and mammatus
Wow, a beautiful supercell near Harrison, NE (in the extreme northwest corner of the Nebraska Panhandle) was photographed from the south, near Agate along Hwy 29. A weak tornado was even observed for a minute or so to our northeast. The cell was diving southeast, and we got behind it west of Hemingford, near the Box Butte/Sioux county line. The cell was weakening, but it left us gaping at a tremendous mammatus display. These weren’t the classic, smooth and extremely bubbly mammatus….but I wasn’t complaining.
