2010 Storm Chase 42 Teaser - August 16th - Augnadofest!
It was certainly a tornado festival here in Colorado today! All of them were related to a stationary boundary which sat across the eastern plains. The first few were non-supercellular and while the last two came from a weak supercell, it is the boundary interaction that likely caused tornadogenesis. Awww heck, how 'bout some pics?
1W Deer Trail. No visible surface circulation from our vantage, but Hambone has video of it. Note the tumbleweeds being lofted in the foreground. This was likely the beginning of subsequent funnels/NSTs in our area.
Near Ninemile Corner in Morgan County.
A second tornado in almost the exact same place, but our vantage changed. Again, near Ninemile Corner.
"Always Chasing" describes my desire to never stop pursuing my goals and dreams (pardon the cliché). There are always storms to chase and trails to explore. This blog is a repository of those adventures... pursuing severe/adverse weather, visiting new places and exploring the natural topography of my surroundings. It is an outlet for my amateur pursuit of photography with my point-and-shoot camera as well as a forum for discussing meteorological events. The name "Big Sky Convection" will remain, but I feel that "Always Chasing" more accurately describes my direction.
