Day 10 (June 20): Pratt to Hutchinson, KS marginal supercell

Filed under: Chase Accounts,Chase Trip 2009,Latest Chases,Storm Chasing — Mike U @ 9:07 am

I left Dodge City mid-afternoon and headed to Greensburg as a staging point for severe thunderstorm development.  A corridor of 2000-3000 J/kg CAPE developed in the wake of earlier day showers and thunderstorms with a decent east to west surface boundary.  An interesting storm emerged out of a cluster of disorganized activity to the southwest of Pratt.  The storm had some decent structure initially, with a formidable lowered region from the updraft base.  All the unpaved farm roads were still fairly wet from the earlier day rainfall, so I had to stay on paved routes.  This meant core punching the storm north of Pratt.  I finally got ahead of it again to the west of Hutchinson.  A new cell developed out ahead of the former storm by about 10 miles or so…which eventually merged with the former storm to the northwest of Hutch.  Rotation in the storm increased, but it quickly became an HP mess with any tornadic circulation being wrapped in rain.  My last shoot was northwest of Hutch shooting the shelf cloud extending down the rear flank from the strong wrapped up circulation.  I didn’t like the way things were evolving with this storm and it wasn’t entirely photogenic, so I dropped down to South Hutch and called the chase off in favor of positioning for the next day.
