This is a picture of the Hattiesburg supercell a while after it passed through the city.

 

One of the most well-defined boundary weak echo region (BWER) I have ever seen. Personally I'd say it tops the one associated with the supercell that spawned the EF4 Cullam, AL tornado back on April 27, 2011.

 

Smoothed the color table to make it more visually appealing:

A lot of supercells have that feature.  The only reason why you noted it on the Hattiesburg and Cullman supercells is because they were far from any radar, so the BWER was being detected at 0.5 deg because the beam was pretty high up.  If you look on other tilts of other supercells, you'll see similarly impressive BWERs.

Here's a TDWR Tilt 1 .gif of the 20 May 2013 storm evolution from TOKC.  Data compliments of Plymouth State.  Someone with better .gif editing skills can mess around with the dwell and repeat if you like.

What place file are you using for the roads? That looks nice.

What was the timestamp on that El Reno velocity image Disc?

 

I captured that just before 7:30 eastern time. I didn't save the whole window unfortunately.

They also have some other neat things for GR as well.

Here are the El Reno shots 

 

There's some data from the KOUN radar site floating around that I'll get my hands on soon. 

 

Both Level 2 shots have the correct storm motions set, so my final reading was about 295 knots

 

Strongest couplet I have ever seen 

 

(Ignore the MPH tag in the upper left) 

 

 

Level 3 

 

 

(Maxed out pallet)

Talk about looking like a mini hurricane with that first shot, wow.

Damn, look at that eye and the satellite nearby. Unreal.
