Event Narrative Shortly after 200 pm, a small thunderstorm developed 8 WNW of Belton, a few miles ahead of the rear flank downdraft gust front associated with the large supercell that was moving into the northern portion of the county at this time. The initial weak circulation associated with the small thunderstorm deepened and strengthened as it moved to the east-southeast. The storm produced a weak tornado which lasted about 10 minutes before it was undercut by the rear flank downdraft of the larger storm.
