In this work, idealized soundings are used to simulate supercell thunderstorms using the CM1 model. These idealized soundings are manipulated to change the angle of the 0 – 500 m vertical wind shear vector with respect to the deep-layer hodograph in each simulation. Results from four cases will be presented: the control case, which has no shear in the lowest 500 m, the ‘0 degree' shear case, ‘90 degree' shear case, and ‘180 degree' shear case. These cases will be compared to investigate how the angle of vertical shear orientation affects the developments of low-level rotation in supercell thunderstorms. In particular, it is expected that the sensitivity to the low-level shear is, in part, a product of the outflow position and characteristics in different shear regimes.
