Just wanted to check in really quick as I know it will be a while before I get the report with.
I chased with Michael Carlson and Kendell LaRoche on Sunday. We had five storm intercepts and saw pretty much everything you could see except for a full fledged tornado. Great RFD insanity, spinups, rapidly rotating wall clouds, scud bombs, a big cone funnel cloud, and a few features that could have been something more than they appeared. We even got in a good hail core at the end of the night. Lots of fun!
I took a LOT of video and not many photos, but I'll share with you one of my favorites:
East side of Arkansas City, Kansas (US 77), looking N
Large mesocyclone of tornado-warned supercell.
(we left this cell and moved south into Oklahoma)
It will be a few days before I get around to posting full reports for 3/21 and 3/23. Really backed up at the office and at home at the moment. Stay tuned! Sorry for the delay.
