March 23rd chase brief summary

Filed under: Storm Chasing — Mike U @ 10:53 pm

Marginal supercell storm near Fort Morgan, CO.  I hooked up with Tony Laubach and a couple of his friends from the Denver area for much of this chase… and we intercepted a fairly gorgeous storm during the mid evening hours in the Fort Morgan-Brush area after pathetic, disorganized storms dominated much of the late afternoon and early evening.   A corridor of mid 40s dewpoints in the Akron to Fort Morgan area advected far enough to "energize" this storm with real nice structure after sunset.  Not much time to post more details, but they will be forthcoming soon, along with a bunch of photos.  Tomorrow’s chase looks really, really interesting as the compact upper low comes out into eastern Colorado.  Here’s a sneak-peak photo from this evening’s great looking storm:
