This tornado was to our east at the same time!
An amazing chase day along I-70 in western Kansas today for many including our group.
We left the large damaging tornado north of Denver and missed it in our backyard by only an hour and a half and less than 30 miles from where we started. It was very disheartening to hear of the 3 lives lost and all the damage in Weld County which was a historically strong tornado that went northwest almost into the mountains near Laramie, WY.
Here's the tornadoes we saw today, some of which Michael's already posted some amazing pics of and Eric got the best video to come!
1) Grainfield, KS white rope tornado
2) Multi-vortex truncated cone south of Collyer, KS
3) Stout Cone south of Collyer, KS
4) Needle tornado south of Collyer, KS
5) Circulation passing of I-70 east of Collyer, KS
6) Truncated cone tornado west of Trego Center, KS
I flew one of the WW3 planes on the Stout Cone south of Collyer, KS but lost site of it in the dark conditions and it was taken far out of range and lost. I may get it back if a farmer finds it next fall during the wheat harvest and calls my cell phone number written all over the tail!
