2010 Storm Chase 43 Report - August 19th - Local Lightning
A shortwave moved through that evening with a line of thunderstorms that persisted off of the foothills. I headed to my local lightning perch and gargoyled for a while there, enjoying the show. There was quite a bit of lightning, but it waned with the bottoms falling out of the storms as they moved over lower terrain. A severe thunderstorm warning was issued for a segment of the line to the north and a 62mph gust was recorded near Boulder. I was in Greenwood Village for the event.
Linear nature of dynamically forced thunderstorms.
"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.
