Day 4 Chase-apalooza. eastern NE

Looking at the RUC model data, I would put today's target at Beatrice, NE.

This van at our hotel with all its windows blown out describes yesterday! Our group documented numerous tornadoes in Quinter and Ness City, KS and encountered fierce tornadic winds. Our M2 mobile mesonet driven by the ISU students had a powerpole come down near the car and take off the anemometer. The NatGeo crew vehicle had it's side windows blown out by tornadic winds. The tornadoes near Quinter, KS ranged from a stout cone to a large wedge tornado. Michael, Eric and I tried to get ahead of the wedge tornado at Hill City but visibility obscured any chance of seeing it up there. We then shot down along the dryline to Ness City, KS where we encountered three separate white rope tornadoes from behind the RFD. We chased this storm up to Ogallah, KS where there were 4 semi-trailers blown over on I-70 and two large tornadoes had moved through wrapped in rain.

I have not flown the TWISTEX plane on this trip yet due to manufacturing problems with the dropsonde. The temperature sensor is reading off the board instead of the ambient air making it useless attm. Hopefully today I will get to do a test flight with the actioncam in the dropsonde or posssibly get some aerial photographs with the Nikon point and shoot.
