June 19, 2011 - Colorado & Nebraska Storms

Back to albums

Accompanied by Ben Holcomb, we left Colby, Kansas in the morning and headed towards northeast Colorado. Storms fired early and we intercepted out first storm northwest of Sterling. We followed this storm northeast into Nebraska witnessing some incredible structure and color. This storm became very outflow dominant, so we headed south to intercept a new storm near Sedgwick, CO. New storms were developing to our east in Nebraska, and we were expecting to chase storms in eastern Nebraska the next day, so we decided to head that way. We missed the tornado near dark in McCook by about 20 minutes. Ended up spending the night in York, only seven miles from where we'd see the first of many tornadoes the next day.
