Figure 18b: KVNX WSR-88D Reflectivity cross section image at 1204 UTC from the Gibson Ridge GR2AE radar software. The Wichita supercell is again in the front center of the image. The image shows a large red reflectivity core (50 dBZ) extending to near 40,000 ft AGL, with overhang above a tight reflectivity gradient at the low-level inflow notch region. Also notated in the image are cloud droplets (light bluish tinge color) which stretch out from west to east across the equilibrium level (approximately 40,000 ft AGL for a most unstable parcel), and an overshooting top to approximately 50,000 ft AGL. These features were indicative of not only supercellular structure, but also very large hail potential.
