Residual rotation in the clouds above Central New York


Residual rotation left in a cloud after a funnel cloud broke up.
Cloud rotation

As my family was driving down one of the local roads I looked up at the storm clouds and noticed a funnel cloud trying to form right above us. We were stopped and stuck in traffic so we couldn't quickly drive and get away. I kept watching it and, thankfully, the funnel cloud quickly broke apart. This photograph shows the residual rotation left in the cloud after the funnel cloud broke up. 

What a welcome to New York!
