>Weather Explained: Bow Echo

>

What is a Bow Echo?
A bow echo is a line of storms in a curve shape. Below is a picture.
It is a squall line that carries very intense winds.
What can a bow echo do?
Bow echoes are extremely windy. They are very similar to squall lines. They do have more potential to produce tornadoes, as the winds are higher and there is a curve in the line, which is conductive for tornado formation.
Are bow echoes dangerous?
Yes they are.
What can I do if I see a bow echo coming?
Take anything that can fly away outside inside. Bow echoes can topple trees and are associated with supercells, which will be in the next Weather Explained.
How will I see a bow echo on radar?
You will see a line of intense storms in a big curve.
