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!

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 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!

2010 Tornadoes: 16
Lifetime Tornadoes: 136

Hi! My name is Leticia, i'm from Brazil (and probably the only person here who loves tornadoes...)! I absolutely love tornadoes and everything about them! I watch you and other guys chasing around tornado alley every day! I hope someday i can go there and see one (and another, and another, and another...) with my own eyes!!!
I'll keep watching you!

Great catch, Verne! If I would have listened to your son and blasted east instead of dicking around in the hail, I might have seen them too. :(
