7/9/2017 Olivia, MN Explosion

We (CoD Trip 5) launched our first weather balloon from Sauk Center, MN, before heading south towards and absolute explosion of an updraft near Olivia, MN. Turns out, this rapidly developing supercell became quickly HP, and mostly caused us a lot of frustration as we struggled to maneuver around to the southern flank. We did stick with the storm until late in the evening, where we documented a brief tornado and vivid lightning.
