KS/NE Storms

Initially targeted Grand Island Nebraska, but was lured early southward to the KS border by early convection firing on a warm front. The move proved both good and bad, as we did intercept a tornado-warned storm (that had previously produced a tornado)…a pretty storm, but no tornado this time. The bad part of the equation: our original target area produced an evening tornado near Aurora Nebraska…which would have been easilty accessible had we waited for convection to fire there. The chess match continues today, as we are in central Iowa. The potential for some significant tornadic supercells exists today, but figuring exactly where in a large area will be the challenge. More later… -Dave

  1. Good luck with the chase today. You all deserve a good “bad” weather day!!!

  2. The weather has been strangely mild this year. I think this may have been one of my favorite summers.
