Abstract

Photographs are presented of wall clouds having holes or small regions of raised cloud base new the center. These eyelike features may be due to descending air (Lemon and Doswell) near the middle of the mesocyclone circulation or to the ingestion of relatively dry air into the updraft (Fankhauser et al.,).
