Chase Day 28 - Another ColoradoFest! Tornado Pictures & Video

Recommended Posts

What a day again, Colorado has been the place to be this year. Started in Limon after yesterdays 8 Tornadoes and blasted west to a couple of Tornado Warned Supercells SE of Denver, after noting these were struggling we blasted east to a new area of Storms and got onto a storm east of us near Anton, blasted through Golfball Hail and into the bears cage and boom large Cone Tornado just to our South.

Let this move towards us and when it was 200 yards away let it pass just behind us, at the time getting showered with hail and rain wrapping around violently.

Then blasted east again through more Golfball Hail and cut south on a road near Kirk (Co) this was going to be a close shave as when we came out of the precip we had a large eastwards moving Cone Tornado over the road in front of us, we let this dance in a field 100 yards to our west and watched it lift up.

About this time we got hit with extreme dry Rfd Winds which moved us across the road and upon looking up new another large Tornado was about to touch down. So re positioned 1/4 mile futher south and watched possible the fastest rotation I have seen put down a nice white cone Tornado where we had been sitting.

Some very aggresive chasing today but always in control of the situation and sometimes HP Supercells have to be tackled differently or you just wont see the goodies inside the beast.

Here's the video of the second and third tornado. I didn't get the first as I was on the wrong side of the car driving. Amazing chase again and such a buzz to be getting so close!

 

Warning, language is a bit fruity a few times but you just can't contain the excitement! Watch in 1080p for best quality :)
