An interesting first chase in Wyoming landed a couple of funnel clouds. They were associated with a relatively weak looking cell on radar, but wind shear and upslope aided in assisting the rotation. This photo was taken six miles north of Hartville, WY at 6:31 p.m. MDT.
Overall, thunderstorms really struggled today and there wasn’t any particularly intense action. Areas this far west struggle to get into some of the more favorable moisture return and I think that was one of the limiting factors today.
One more chase day is on tap for Thursday!
