WIKIPEDIA DEFINITIONS: An MCC is a kind of MCS that might contain an MCV or DERECHOS.
Here's also an Enhanced Infrared Satellite animation from AccuWeather.com. Notice the colors turn to purple, meaning that the clouds have reached extreme heights and are below -100 degrees Fahrenheit.
At 1:15 in the morning, the MCC was at peak intensity with the cloud deck covering most of Kansas, Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle. (Reminder: MCC's are most powerful overnight thanks to energy from low-level jet streams which setup after sunset.)
Ain't she a beauty?

It's been a heck of a season, but winter is not over yet. Historic cold and snow is coming once again.
I was lucky enough again this year to have AccuWeather send me to Social Media Week in New York City and even luckier to get these awesome photos.
I'd like to present our latest promo video which explains what AccuWeather, the company, does.
Six states got socked with around two feet of snow -- or more, after the Pre-Valentine's Day Blizzard of 2014 was through.
