Sarah, UNL Undergraduate
gives an account
of a June 10, 1999 chase
and a June 28, 1999
|June 10, 1999:
Outside of Strasburg, CO on I-70. This storm was the greenest storm
I have ever seen, and yes, it was very windy. The gust front from
this storm was kicking up a lot of dust and produced some brief
"gustnadoes". (This storm also produced softball-sized hail, luckily
we didn't witness it!!!)
|Later on June 10,
1999...we continued east ahead of the storm. The storm's gust front
produced a very nice "shelf" cloud.
|June 28, 1999: This
supercell was developing along the southern Wyoming/Nebraska border.
|June 28, 1999: A
small tornado formed out of the supercell we were chasing. It touched
down outside of Scottsbluff, NE.
|June 28, 1999: The
tornado is barely visible but can be seen in the center of the photograph
as a narrow gray funnel touching down in the hills in the distance.
