Tornadoes Northeast Colorado 28th May 2018

Published by:

Ok so it's 2018 but at least finally we had an opportunity to chase several tornadoes - two likely mesocyclonic!

What an awesome day! Left Scottsbluff (after I repaired my tyre after a second flat for the trip followed by water dripping on the bed in the first room of my motel) and headed straight south and then eventually east from the western side of the development before the show. Apparently missed the first weak landspout. It was a fairly intense chase for the time it lasted.

Colorado to Wyoming Supercells and Lightning Show 27th May 2018

Firstly congratulations to those that got the tornadoes in Wyoming including Nick Nicholas Moir! We were headed that way but got sidetracked by the storm east of Denver which looked good perhaps a little higher based.
There were several areas of rotation although one circulation in particular showed stronger rotation - this most likely was a tornado given the tight ground dust spin-up lasting about 30 seconds

And of course, I chased into Scottsbluff last night and pinched my tyre flat at the hotel - getting it fixed now.

Texas Panhandle Supercell breaks the cap 25th May 2018

After a few attempts earlier and a good call from Willoughby to let the original storm to pass into drier air, we headed back north to I-40 corridor. With lunch and some relaxing, we watched the storm take off! More storms to chase into Oklahoma after this rotated for some time and shrivelled upwards at sunset.
