“On August 29, 2020 ESTOFEX issued a lvl 3 for northern Italy and it seemed that almost all of Europes storm chaser went to the Po valley. Well, except for Anton Kötsche and me. We decided to go to southern Czech Republic/Northeastern Austria, where ESTOFEX only marked a lvl 1, the parameter however looked very good for supercells as well. We were sure that this one would be the cell of the day so we finally went south into Hungary were we ended up near Lövö with a beautiful classic supercell coming its way towards us. It strengthened right in front of us, got a very strong inflow and made us speechless with its beautiful structure” by Sebastian Stöttinger
