Today we left Nebraska crossing the state line into Colorado. SPC had a slight risk for the state as well as a 2% tornado risk which was briefly elevated to 5% and then dropped again.
HRRR indicated development in the NW portion of the state so we headed west of Sterling near Jackson Lake State Park to watch and wait.

After brief interest with the storms developing to the South of Denver, we returned and focused on the storm near the Wyoming state line which was already Severe Warned and developing rapidly. As we approached from the SE we could see a few funnels dropping in the distance and the storm was structuring up nicely.

This really was a structure day, some hail on the way back to Sterling and a beautiful example of a Back Sheared anvil however conditions really weren't conducive for any further development.

Overnight tonight in the town of Sterling.
