May 18th — Amazing storm in Wyoming   Leave a comment

Today I chased a supercell thunderstorm from south of Gillette, Wy to around south of Newcastle, Wy. Though the storm didn’t produce a tornado it exhibited some dramatic/intense storm structure. I initially thought the storm would take an E/NE direction instead after a storm split it made a hard right to the SE.
The storm ended up producing large amounts of hail some of which was large. I was quite impressed with the overall storm structure and for what started out as an iffy day ended up being rewarding.

A Note I’ve noticed that photobucket adds a level of compression to images I upload so there is a loss of quality to a certain extent.
