Re: ROUGH Weather Ahead?

Derechos are bow-echoes with plenty of rotation in supercells with rotating winds horizontally along the bow. They often spawn tornadoes with enough downward pressure to bend the rotating winds aloft. Microbursts on the other hand are straight downward wind from the chimney of the storm radiating outward in a straight line once the wind hits the ground. Not comparable at all.
