Day 11: Low contrast tornado and AMAZING mammatus

This day ended in a way like many other days this trip. We go home after a rather successful day without seeing any tornadoes. David looks at his phone and says: “Wait a minute, I think there was a tornado here”. Today was the 3rd time this happened!  After the incredible tornado day yesterday we were...

Day 10: Multiple tornadoes in three different states

Just like a couple of other days this year, June 12th started off looking really great. All storm related parameters were super high but there was a great risk of all the storms firing at the same time, causing a big mess that would erode the entire day – just like May 26th last year. The...

Day 9: Cap bust in Wyoming

Today’s main target was really Minnesota, although it looked like squall lines and night time chasing. Fortunately, in the morning it turned out SE Wyoming would actually have a chance to produce severe weather. SPC even put a 2% tornado risk in the area where were more or less just prepared to have a down...

Day 8: Driving through beautiful Montana

Although Minnesota looked like a better target for Sunday we had to leave for Wyoming to pick up the newest member of our team: Akos from Hungary. To get there we had to drive through Montana, which really was an experience. Green hills, mountains with snow caps in the background and great plains. It was...

Day 7: Supercells & two brief tornadoes in North Dakota

After that 13 hour drive the day before, we sure needed some rest, and got some as well. This was the day we have been looking for, the hodographs showed perfect winds and most parameters were pointing towards a great chase day. SPC had a 5% tornado risk and it seemed liked there would not...

Day 6: A 13 hour drive to North Dakota

We decided to head for the North Dakota-target as it showed great potential. It was a looong run, especially since we have to get back to at least Denver as Alex is going home and Akos is coming along with us. Still, we are here to chase and this was the place to go. The...

Day 5: Our first real chase day

We woke up to a day that turned out slightly better than we anticipated and we were thankful to have our first real chase day of the trip! The parameters were decent: good CAPE, decent moisture, lift but not as much shear.  As we were already in the target area we could have a long...

Day 4: Tornado at 11.000 ft!

After the morning’s forecast we had the option of going some 3 hours east to chase really bad storms or going down almost all the way to New Mexico to, most likely, miss some slightly better looking storms. Instead, we went up the mountains again to hike and drive Mount Evens road, the highest located...

Day 3: Hiking in the Rocky Mountains

Early on this day David made a forecast and we realized that there would be very meager storms at best within a 3 hour drive (i.e. 6 hours in total) so we decided to call it a Down Day and go up hiking in the mountains instead, in Rocky Mountain National Park. There was a...

Day 2: Traveling to Denver, CO

There is really not much to say about June 4th, Day 2 on this chase, other than it was a looong day. We got up and into the Stormtrooper at 9 a.m. and finally arrived in Denver at 10.30, some 13.5 hours later! That did include a stop in Wakita, OK, for a visit to...
