The big risk day of 2014 featured extreme wind shear and cape which prompted an SPC high risk.

Fortunately for residents but unfortunately for us — storms struggled throughout the afternoon. A supercell looked to be ready to do big things though, as it featured all the classic hallmarks of a tornado producer on a high risk day. However, the cap was strong and the storm eventually wilted and died quickly. From a chase standpoint it was certainly disappointing but sometimes our disappointments are a good thing for everyone else.
