Wednesday featured one of the most photogenic supercells of 2015. We awaited convective initiation in Nelson, NE (while launching a weather balloon), before jogging a bit west to intercept growing towers to our west. We latched onto the maturing southern storm and admired its structure until evening twilight. Large distances between the LCL and LFC made for a smooth, laminar appearance of the base.
MISC: Overnighted in Lincoln, NE at the Haymarket.
