Mesoscale Vortex

There were lots of "critters in the woods" last night.  Regular readers David Yorty and Warren Weston sent me the radar imagery below which shows a nice mesoscale vortex in the radar echoes just west of Brigham City.  Click on the image below to access the radar loop and see the rotation and pronounced hook in the radar reflectivity pattern.

FYI that the hook echo in this case should not be confused with the hook echo associated with supercells, but it is quite fascinating.
