Saturday’s setup was another typical 2017 setup, with outstanding instability but rather lackluster low-level wind shear. After killing some time in Salina, we drifted north to rapidly developing towers south of Junction City, KS. They had some good initial structure and were throwing out copious positive CG bolts, but cold pools quickly consolidated into a forward propagating MCS. We stayed ahead of the bow from Cosgrove to Wichita, occasionally stopping for photos of the shelf and attempts at lightning.
