A MCC-caused sudden rainstorm occurred on August 10, 2006 in NE China. Related observations, satellite/radar imagery and automatic stations measurements were employed to investigate detailed evolutions of the MCC-associated large-scale background field, the imagery, the MCC (mesoscale convective complex) meso structure at its mature stage. Consequently, were revealed the MCC environmental features and multi-scale structures. The mature MCC was an elliptical meso cloud mass on the satellite image and a convective cloud line developing into a squall on the radar image, with the same orientation as the major axis of the elliptical MCC. The squall line consisted of multiple meso-β clouds. And the rainstorm hitting the county Tailai was produced by the developing meso-β cloud at the rear right end of the squall, with its prominent characteristic being the quickly intensified meso-γ vorticity produced by shear.
