Cool Images, Videos Of Some Of This Week's Weather: Wild Sunsets And Tornadoes

Storm chaser Daniel Shaw captured this image of an
immense supercells thunderstorm east of Roswell, New
Mexico earlier this week. 
The nation's weather has calmed down somewhat from last week's super active weather, but things are still going on, which of course gives us cool weather images and videos.

Videos are at the bottom of this post.  

One thing all of us weather geeks have been talking about this week is the evening supercell thunderstorm east of Roswell, New Mexico.

Several storm chasers captured the huge amount of mammatus clouds on the rear flake of the immense storm's anvil at sunset. Quite an otherworldly scene.

Also this week, tornadoes and severe weather struck across the south. Tornadoes caused damage in Texas, Georgia and North Carolina, where one tornado blew a fire station apart while firefighters huddled beneath fire trucks.

More tornadoes and severe weather is already spinning up in the Southeast today, and is expected to continue the rest of the day.

Here's the video of the New Mexico sunset supercell:

Here's a family's view of a close encounter with a scary tornado in Autryville, North Carolina on Tuesday.
