6/1/2016 Drifting Along the Frontrange

6/1 was a leisurely drive along the front range of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado.  We started the morning in Trinidad, with another meager atmospheric setup for severe convective storms. Our only hope was weak forecasted instability along the Palmer Divide and Cheyenne Ridge (two well-known convective initiation mechanisms by storm chasers). We chose the latter and were treated by some pretty scenery in northern Colorado and some good lightning.

MISC: Overnighted in Fort Morgan, CO.
