We joke about it, but the amount of ways any given chase day can fail to live up to expectations consists of a laughably diverse set of circumstances. This is literally one of the countless draws to storm chasing for us.
Still, each season you only get so many chase days and any chase day is better than a day at the office! So one must enjoy each day as the unique experience it is. On this chase from The Lost Chases Collection, we had really high expectations going into the day — but an unfortunate miscalculation left us with anti-cyclonic storms shooting north through our target area.
These left splits are notorious big hail producers, but tornadoes are more rare. Check out the video for how we tried to adjust on this day and some visual depictions of left split vs. right split supercells!
Subbed noti gang. Still love the vids. Always pretty and educational.
Nice video I saw a really cool left split supercell looking west from Kansas City this year on July 11 and I also saw some weird left anticyclonic super cells develop without a parent supercell to split them they formed by themselves this year on April 11 in Kansas City!
Thanks for sharing this, even bad days are good teachers!
Nice video Wares Chris?
