Super Cell Thunderstorm Crosses Star Valley Monday Afternoon

A supercell thunderstorm developed  in southeast Idaho and crossed Star Valley Monday afternoon.  While a tornado warning was issued for the storm ,the primary event was large hail.  Star Valley Ranch reported hail up to the size of golfballs.  A 2nd storm brought more wind and hail a couple hours later as it moved a little further south affecting as far south as Afton.

Here are a couple cam animations made for both storms.  The first is of the supercell that hit Star Valley Ranch and it can clearly be seen the rotating super cell  heading for the cam from Freedom to the Ranch

The second storm was caught on the recently added cam in the hills west of Afton.
