(Three-picture sequence)

A towering cumulus which would eventually develop into a thunderstorm.  Looking north from Franklin, TN.  Early summer 2000
 


 The same cloud as seen in the picture above approximately 30 minutes later from a different location.  The storm is still developing. Cool Springs of Franklin, TN.


This is the mature stage of the same storm as seen above.
