The following images were taken while chasing the Canadian Prairie Provinces this summer. Beautiful country, but we did not catch a tornado. See the images below for our fun during this chase period!
Well, what can be said here. Caryn and I were walking out of our house on the porch and low and behold and landspout tornado developed just north of the house under a high based storm which had developed on a boundary. It stayed on the ground for about 3-5 minutes before dissipating.
I didn’t expect much on July 1 with limited moisture and large temperature/dewpoint spreads. We did catch a nice high based hailer northwest of St Francis, Kansas. This storm had decent structure and produced tons of hail to golf ball size. Unfortunately this hail clobbered numerous cornfields and did considerable damage.
