Promise Unfulfilled

Storm Chasing with Steve Carey

June 1, 2010

Today had great promise.  The SPC issued a Moderate Risk for severe storms, including supercells and tornadoes for much of eastern Nebraska and western Iowa.  Leaving Guymon, Oklahoma early in the day, we made our way to the vicinity of York, Nebraska by late afternoon.   Unfortunately,  the storms in our target area failed to organize into discrete  supercells.   So it goes with storm chasing.  As in life, not everything goes as planned,  but tomorrow is another day. Looks like we will be heading back to central Oklahoma tomorrow, and although the potenial for tornadoes doesn’t look all that good there is always the possibility of catching that one storm that makes the long drive  worthwhile.

By the way,  it is only Tuesday and we have driven almost 1,800 miles.
