June Chase Trip 2008: Day 5 Summary – Brockway, MT storm

Filed under: Chase Accounts,Chase Trip 2008,Storm Chasing — Mike U @ 8:01 am

Sunday, June 22 was somewhat of a frustrating day in the sense that we mis-forecast our target of southeast Montana — nothing formed in that area at all… not even any cumulus.  We left around midday from Buffalo, WY and set forth for the Biddle to Broadus, MT area.  By mid-afternoon it became quite apparent that it would take an act of God to get any storms in this area, given the close proxmity of the short wave ridge, the amount of cirrus overhead limiting heating, and the best jet energy going to the north.  At Broadus, we headed north Miles City when we saw some storms developing on ThreatNet (on Vince’s laptop) north of Miles City.  We reached Miles City in the mid-evening hours and tracked northeast on I-94, witnessing a distant storm our north.  Initially, it looked quite promising with a lot of good inflow cumulus and flanking line towers feeding into the main updraft region.  We stopped north of Terry for only storm photography of the day as this briefly supercellular storm was beginning to die a nasty death.  Once this happened, we ultimately decided to just head into Glendive, MT for the night — and hope that additional stuff would form around us for some lightning opportunities.  This really didn’t happen either, except to our distant east.  

Today — Monday June 23rd:  Early morning data suggests two potential targets along a northeast to southwest axis.  One would be along the old convergence axis across the northwest SD-southwest ND border region and the other would be post frontal northeasterly upslope against the Big Horns region (targeting Northeast WY).  We’ll continue forecasting/deliberation on this final decision.
