Saturday Chase Teaser and Sun/Mon Plans

Wish I had more time to update tonight, but unfortunately I do not ... thus, no time also for a full chase forecast.

Here is a teaser photo from the chase in Colorado today. I can't say much about this other than everything that happened was a pleasant surprise. We honestly expected only rain showers ... and eventually found ourselves on a beautiful, tornado-warned, low-precipitation supercell. Look at that gorgeous mesocyclone ... Wow, what a day!


Chased with Tony Laubach, Travis Speakman, and Ed Grubb







Quick radar cap of the isolated cell.


SO...

... heading out to Kansas in six hours or so. Will be chasing in Nebraska/Kansas on Sunday, staying in Russel, KS (probably) Sunday night, and chasing somewhere between Nebraska and Oklahoma on Monday.

Updates on Facebook.

That is a very cool photo Dann, what a pretty storm.
I was watching that thing on radar and saw Tony's SN icon sitting out there all alone in the middle of it.
Whata crazy little cell, it just sat there for hours churning away. Was wondering what it looked like from the surface.

Thanks Boomer ... it was a beautiful storm ... and it started off so weakly. Good lesson to stick to your storm. ... oh and it went so slow ... just crawling along.
