June 16th was a bust. We saw lightning and heard thunder, though! We did consider two targets: A) Eastern Colorado/Cheyenne Ridge where some residual moisture existed amidst fairly cool mid level temperatures. Slowly rising mid level heights, though and overall CAPE was a huge concern. B) South-central/southeastern KS. A remnant boundary from yesterday’s activity was expected to move slowly eastward. There was a huge cap concern here, but the CAPE was extreme: Around 5000 J/kg. Result: We chose (A) and we chose poorly. Nothing but showers and non severe thunder dotted our target from Sidney to Julesburg by early evening. We sat around Lodgepole, NE hoping one of the small storms would erupt into something a little more spectacular, but it wasn’t to be. We ended up calling off the chase in favor of grabbing a nice dinner in Sidney — which we did. At dinner, we saw target (B) erupt into a stationary non-tornadic supercell southeast of Wichita near Winfield. D’oh!!! That was rather painful. It’s part of chasing though. I took a couple images, but am too lazy to upload junk storm pictures to the blog right now, LOL. We are in Ogallala, NE this morning. Evan and I are debating our target for today, there are a couple of them across southern Nebraska. Stay tuned.
