Day 16 (June 11th) – Messy storms by the NE/IO border

Yesterday was supposed to be the Big Day of this tour, i.e. the one with the best parameters, and it did not result in any tornado. After two weeks of disappointments and storms that starts to die or congeal after 1-2 hours, allowing for very little actual storm watching, I have to confess I was...

Day 11 (June 6th) – Slow day in Nebraska

Today was a day with slim chances of getting something good. SPC had put a slight risk (and 2% tornado risk) over western Nebraska, parts of Colorado and Wyoming. We chose to go to western Nebraska. What happened today was not so much what happened in Nebraska, where we went, but what happened in Wyoming....

Day 6 (June 1st) – Bust day in Nebraska but with beautiful mammatus

When Roger Hill told us about the parameters of our last day he had a hard time hiding his excitement. The setup was just magnificent for a big event! The morning of our chase day I had a beautiful walk by the South Platte river (North Platte, Nebraska) with intense southern winds and I was...

Day 1 (May 27th) – One of two targets

As I mentioned yesterday, I had no clue of how the weather would be this week but was happily surprised during the morning briefing, and while talking to Roger Hill this morning, that the weather is looking pretty good. In terms of SPC today was a 2% day covering SE Wyoming, NE Colorado and parts...

Day 14: High winds and almost the perfect tornado

We had a vote at lunch about whether we should go home to Tulsa or chase up north. Since we were driving on our spare tire and the setup did not look to good my vote was on going home. Akos, the constantly positive Hungarian, convinced us on chasing so we went up to chase...

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 13 – Chasing hatched 10% tornado risk in Nebraska

Yesterday we (well, mostly David) did a thorough forecast for today and, just like most others, came up with eastern or northeastern Nebraska as our target area for the day. The moisture was excellent, the shear was good, the CAPE was ok and there seemed to be enough lift. Our only worry was the lack...

Day 8 – Hail

Can hail really be exciting? Yes! This promising Sunday started out slow and it was not until 4 in the afternoon when we actually landed at our first prospect. A very beautiful storm that seemed promising, but above all gave us a…sense of hail. At first, we heard a constant and fairly loud rumbling above...
