We’ve been back nearly 2 weeks now, settling back into life in Virginia, and even seeing some local storms of note. In the meantime, co-leader Chris White has put together some narratives with photos of our chase trip on Facebook, linked below.
The trip was a challenge without our long-time leader, VT meteorology instructor Dave Carroll, who was unable to travel due to last-minute contingencies. But it was successful, with more supercell intercepts (7) all but 1 or 2 of our trips in the last decade, and at least 1 confirmed tornado. We didn’t see that one obvious backlit “Wizard of Oz” type tornado but saw plenty of storm structure to amaze us in completely open terrain far from populated areas.
My thanks to all for the success of 2014 Storm Chase. Looking forward to 2015
