June 20, 2012: Northeast Colorado Hail Storm

posted in: 2012, Chase Highlights | 0

June 20 turned out to be a fun day with hail covered roads in Colorado.  With most of the focus for extreme severe weather in the Great Lakes region out of our reach, we ran to the high plains and caught a supercell that developed in moist southeasterly upslope flow beneath a northwesterly flow in the mid and upper levels.  We intercepted three supercells, including a beautiful low-precipitation supercell after dark that was fun to photograph due to the insane amounts of sheet lightning within it.
