The Storm That Tried


Rotating thunderstorm near Karval, CO. May 22nd, 2015.

A long day of storm chasing in Colorado this past Friday finally paid off just before sunset. Storms were struggling to organize, but one storm in particular captured our attention around 8 p.m. local time.

This storm was broadly rotating and producing a lowering wall cloud at times. As we set up to intercept the storm, lowering appendages were clearly rotating directly overhead.

The storm didn’t quite produce anything more than that, but visually it was fascinating to watch. For a day that was otherwise filled with driving and little to no cell service/radar, this made up for it.
