6/23/2014 Cheyenne Ridge Supercell

The Cheyenne Ridge provided initiation for convection on 6/23 in an environment with favorable directional shear and modest instability.  The result was robust development of a lone supercell that initially had a very classic supercelll RADAR appearance. Unfortunately, the updraft was not able to balance the cold pool and the storm became outflow dominant (a great example of this process is shown in the timelapse below).  We enjoyed beautiful high plains scenery with eastward advancing thunderstorms including a neat shot in front of a trio of grain bins (one of my favorite shots of the year).  Great views, great people!
