6/14/2014 Nocturnal Thunderstorms near Sutton, NE

After a disappointing day of sub-par convection, a northward moving rotating storm emerged near Sutton, NE on the evening of the 14th.  The storm was a bit of a surprise, as it produced a brief tornado northwest of Sutton that we were not able to photograph very well due to our movement and amount of light.  The storm put on a nice lightning display before shrouding in rainfall and moving north of I-80.  Called it quits in Lincoln at the Cornhusker hotel.

Initial diurnal development.  Relatively high LCLs and lack of LL SRH seemed to prohibit tornado development.
