Report & Pictures Chase Day 42

Recommended Posts

Started the day in McCook with a Chase Target of the Kimball area on the Nebraska / Wyoming Border. Storms fired near to Kimball but struggled against the Cap, some storms further North near ScottsBluff really took hold so we headed about 60 Miles North to Intercept. Got on the first Storm just North west of there and it looked okay for a time, it was close to dropping a Nado but quickly went HP & Outflow Dominant, spun up numerous Gustnados. Another cell went up west and had a great look and hook on radar so headed back West to Intercept,this would be the Supercell of the day that eventually dropped a Tornado near Scottsbluff Airport, the only clue we had was 2 or 3 massive Power Flashes in the Green mass to our West. Then headed South East with over 300 vehicles towards Bridgeport, Richard has some great footage of us approaching town with Tornado Sirens blaring for about 10 mins, rotation on the road in front of us and the towns flag getting ripped apart. Just west of town the dreaded Level Crossing Lights were flashing, 4" Hail just behind us and Tornado Sirens wailing, somehow we got through and fled South of Town towards Sidney with the masses, the only Car going the other way was the TIV (Lol) Let the MCS Smash into the Hotel at Sidney and ate dinner and shot some Lightning with Wall Clouds.

Very,very nice hail core, looks extremely ominous. Mike Phelps (not the swimmer) was chasing the more northern cells and the hail core on those storms were impressive but the southern cells that you were on were even better..!! Only thing was that nearly every chaser in the country were on also on those, just aswell there were no large 1 mile wide tornadoes in the vicinity as i'm sure they would have been some serious consequences...

Good luck on seeing tornadoes today (eastern Kansas?) with a 5% tornado risk...
