Colorado storm…

A complex forecast for today, as the major models could not make up their minds on the placement of a low pressure center east of the Rockies.  We opted for Colorado instead of driving much further north into Wyoming and far western Nebraska.  We intercepted the best storm in eastern Colorado, svr-warned with wall cloud structures and some TVS signatures for a time.  Meanwhile, Wyoming/Nebraska erupted into a complex scene of big hailers, with one brief tornado reported among the mass of storms there.  The Colorado storm was photogenic, but something less than we had hoped for on this day.  But the day ended with a beautiful sunset highlighting the storm and meadowlarks singing through the fading light.  On second thought, maybe it wasn’t less than I had hoped for after all…just different.  It reminded me that there are many reasons I love to visit the plains each year.    -Dave
