Day 41 Discussion - Too Many States To List

    Cant really list all the states in Slight Risk zones so will keep it short.

     

    Starting today in Burlington and we are going to have a crack at the DCVZ (Denver Cyclone Convergence Zone)

     

    Storms and Supercells should form by early afternoon across the Big Horn and Laramie Ranges of Wyoming, the Front Range of the Rockies and the Santa Rosa Mountains of New Mexico.

     

    We will be going for the Denver Cyclone today, a unique set up which brings the Palmer Divide into play which extends eastwards from the Front Range.

     

    South Easterly surface upslope winds convergeing against westerly or North westerly flow creates this unique set-up a few times per year and today looks like it could yield something east and south east of the Denver Metroplex.

     

    So will be heading west towards Limon and Bennett for todays chase.

     

    Regards

    and were off......half an hour later than intended thanks to a flat battery but after a quick walk over to the gas station and asking the local cops very nicely they drove over and gave us a jump! Off to Limon to wait for the party to get started!

     

    Will fire up the stream for those who are about in a couple of mins!

    Not sure.....think the alternator might be on the blink as it does not seem to be charging up all that quickly. Paul also noted that the battery was not holding a full charge. The copper had a battery pack and got us going no problems. Guests were charging their gadgets in the back yday so have put a stop to that. Will keep an eye on it, PMSL Paul did not know which one was the battery under the hood!
