2011-06-18 Report Wild Horse Wild Storm!


This day was another slight risk 2% tornado day in eastern CO but this one was different. Today we had decent dewpoints in the 50s instead of mid 40s and an approaching western trough. I could see out to the east around 10am in the morning that towers were starting to go up so it looked like an early show. I got out east on I-70 and got out to Lowland, CO where the first severe warn of the day popped to my southwest. It quickly took on a bean shape and started to right move towards Limon where I first observed a lowering and a needle funnel start to form.

The chase was on. The storm headed due east and slightly south so I knew I would need to chase it down through Hugo, CO. Coming back through Limon I ran into intense hail that covered the roads and clogged my wiperblades so bad they actually stopped working.

The storm now took on the most amazing hook shape I had seen since May 24th Canton, OK. It looked like this was going to finally be the one. The storm went through a few cycles and attempts at tornado-genesis but was mostly and outflow dominate wet HP beast. Down southeast of Hugo I photographed this likely gustnado that may have spun for a bit and looked very pretty but soon turned to a rush of RFD gust.

Probably one of the best Colorado day's to date this year!
