5/19/2014 Sydney, NE to Julesburg, CO Supercell

Monday exhibited another modest moisture upslope regime across the NE panhandle and western WY.  Trajectories turned easterly a little late, but organized convection was able to form near Kimbal, NE and slowly drifted toward Julesburg, CO toward sunset.

It was an interesting storm from a forecasting perspective.  SPC dropped the slight risk during the 1630 UTC update, only to solidly verify the initial morning outlook from Greg Carbin et al. Kudos, Greg et al.!

This (the most southern of) storm provided magnificent photo ops and great scenery as the day drew to a close.  I will take days like these over Oklahoma high-risk tornado setups 99 out of 100 times.  Pops and I also had a chance to resurrect the popular 2013 supercell photo from Nebraska. Overnighting in Julesburg, CO and looking forward to the next couple days.

That's some amazing weather we're having in Sydney huh. You know we get some weird weather, but to get it on video is really something else! Hope to see more of it!
