    Started the day in Sidney (Nebraska) with a chase target of Norfolk (Ne) which is where we thought the Warm Front would be maximised near the triple point. Storms fired early over NW Kansas and C Nebraska but were in an environment of big temp/td spreads and were not really what we were targeting. So we waited and our patience was rewarded with the only warm front storm of the day about 8 miles from us upon initiation. We watched it from Cumulus to developing storm and Classic Supercell as it crossed the warm front. It was literally crawling at 5mph but the main problem with why we did not get a tornado on this storm was its proximity to the other storms racing towards it at 40mph. Only one thing was going to happen and we had a brief window of about 2 hours before the line caught our Supercell and the whole line became a mess and MCS Which would head east towards Omaha.

     

    So no Cigar on the Tornado Front today but Structure Heaven once again in Nebraska and was very happy with both target location and how we chased today.

    I'm pretty sure Nebraska is on Steroids this year , but have to admit I'm starting to warm up to the State
