Stormchase 2013 - Day 1



Day 1 began in Denver. After an early start we headed North to the Wyoming state line given the forecast SPC slight risk. All the way up we had great views of the Rockies out to our West and these provided much of the source of lifting for the storms that were to develop later in the day.

Following lunch we waited around the town of Wheatland, Wyoming for development off the Rockies which proved to be very slow to produce.

One cell looked promising. We followed this east where it took on supercell properties for a while before breaking down, however produced some reasonable sized hail.

South of us in Colorado on the lower end of the risk cells became tornado warned and dropped brief tornados today. Tonight we moved east into Nebraska ahead of what could be a significant day for the eastern part of the state. A 5% tornado risk has been issued by SPC.
