Day 12 (June 7th) – Another day in 2018


It has now been 10 days since I saw my last tornado on this chasecation. Although that was an all time top-5 chase day for me, the lack of good storms are starting to get frustrating. I know I share this feeling with everyone chasing, except maybe for the ones who saw the Laramie, WY, tornado yesterday.

This day was not much different than the last couple of chase days. A decent setup in Wyoming but only with pockets of places where the parameters were right. If just one parameter is off, it will remove the possibility of great looking storms to form. Yesterday we lacked upper wind level support and the LCL (cloud) heights were really high. The best we got was a nice structure, lasting for about 5-10 minutes, of an LP cell.

We are putting a lot of hope on the trough that will come in in the last days of the tour. Hopefully I will end my chase season with another tornado!
