There was SO MUCH anticipation for May 23 in Eastern Colorado. A (rare for this region) 10% tornado outlook was issued by the SPC and morning models were very bullish on isolated supercells forming along a dryline and racing east and north with tornadoes possible.
The plan for this day for us was super simple. Go west and hit up the initial storms forming off of the front range that would likely tornado early then race east for the dryline setup that would kick off in the mid-late afternoon.
The first step was a modest success in that there was a tornado warned supercell but the storm was junky. Like, really junky. So whatever right? Let’s get east!
Then the chase really goes off of the rails. I don’t want to spoil the video but this is a great story of how succeeding at storm chasing is sometimes a big part just pure dumb luck one way or another.
