Abstract:  On 12th March 2003 a very severe thunderstorm traversed across the Gangetic West Bengal in India and adjoining areas of Bangladesh. Documentation and analysis of the thermodynamic condition of the atmosphere and evolution, structure and movement of the storm as tracked by the Doppler radar is presented in this paper. One particular cell of the system lasted for over 12 h. Based on the internal structure, reflectivity, duration and weather pattern on the ground, it has been concluded that the particular cell was a supercell.
