2008 Storm Chase X Preview (October 21st)

Well, I hate to use the word "bust" if I can say I took some worthwhile photos or saw some interesting weather. Unfortunately, some high clouds put a shadow over a decent convective day. We stuck around the cold front and while some interesting storms popped up, they were elevated and behind the front. The few photos I took were of this situation. The cold front itself, can be seen materialized as the shelf-ish cloud. The storms that popped up were from the elevated layer, forced behind the front. It was an interesting sight ...






All photos were in Yuma County, Colorado ... just a stone's throw from the Nebraska border. We decided to head back at this point and tried for some lighting, but ultimately failed.

Throw in a couple grain bins and you got your everyday IL storm lol jk. Seriously though, nice shots. Something's always better than nothing.

Thank you Paul and Pat. It felt great to get out on the plains once more this year. I'm not holding my breath for another shot ... but you never know. :)
