2010-06-22 Report Kimbal Nebraska

Chased the big HP bomb storm from north of Cheyenne, WY into Nebraska. North of Kimbal the RFD dust and precip cleared long enough to get a view into the core. Still not sure if this was rotating that strongly or not..

Possible Tornado? CR59 and CR52 - 15 miles northeast of Kimbal, NE at 23:20z (5:20pm MDT)

This NWS report corresponds almost perfectly to what I video'd: 23:18 11 ESE HARRISBURG NE, BANNER COUNTY, NE 4149 10354

June 21, 2010 Summer Solstice Baseball Hail




Caught the storm of the day as it rapidly developed over Boulder, CO and started it's march to the northeast. It stayed frustratingly high based all the way out to Ft. Morgan where a new cell to the northeast began getting stronger. I core punched my way up to get ahead of this new cell and for awhile I was between both cells but could never get out ahead of the fast moving system. Just east of Yuma, CO I core punched in the RHINO and got pelted by golfballs and then baseballs. The hail was letting up but I wanted more so I went back to where they had fallen and documented the size as easily 3" and this was after a full 10 minutes of melting. The actual stones may have been closer to softball at 3 1/2" when they fell. No damage to the Rhino although I do have one new window crack on the front windshield. (Front window is stock and unmodified for video quality).

2010-06-10 Report Palmer Divide Magic!


The full meso with Tornado #1

Tornado #1 northeast of Deertrail, CO 01:14z (7:14pm MDT)

Tornado #2 northeast of Deertrail, CO 02:30z (8:30pm MDT)

If you were watching my live stream you got to see it all! http://www.tornadovideos.net/live

Some quick pics of the Tornadoes and Stacked Plates Meso from the Deertrail, CO storm. Started the day up on the CO/NE border and then saw that Vortex 2 was coming south back into CO. Checked some data and it was clear that the moisture was not making it up north and was pooling along the front along the Palmer Divide. Three supercells developed. I watched the DIA to Prospect Valley storm for a long time and it was amazing but never produced. It got absorbed into a line and then the southern storm near Deertrail began to dominate. I dropped south to hw36 on dirt roads and watched as the stacked plates meso began to sweep rain shafts around it's updraft base. A clear slot developed and the first tornado dropped. I called it in to 911 and then posted to spotternetwork.org. This tornado lifted so I moved east a bit where the second tornado dropped and danced for quite a while as well. As darkness fell the storm looked like it had the makings of a wedge but there was enough light to see that it did not touch the ground completely.

Palmer Magic at it's best!

June 7, 2010 tornado in Scottsbluff, Nebraska!




Started the day east of Cheyenne, WY when cells fired to the north near Yoder, WY. Got on the storm coming down the North Platte river in WY at Torrington and followed it to Scottsbluff, NE. The first cell in the line moved northeast of hw 26. The second cell in the line moved into Scottsbluff, NE where it produced a brief but intense set of multi-vortex tornadoes all around me on the east side of town! As I was leaving the town to the east the power went off - very erie. The intense suction vortices were ripping up street signs and billboards and throwing them into the powerlines just feet away from me. Two or three vortices spun up to my north with one of them coming back towards me to the west. Then there was a white cone that dropped behind me to the south only yards away. (not captured on video) Then a fifth vortex through debris into the powerlines to my right causing the spark seen in the picture above. My closest and most exciting tornado encounter to date!
