April 23rd, 2006 Kansas Severe Thunderstorms

April 23rd was a day that had plenty of dynamics, but questionable moisture, as has been the case many times this spring so far. I caught an outflow domimant severe thunderstorm complex east of Dodge City early, then caught the best supercell of the day near Salina, as strong lift occurred near the warm front. The outflow dominant storms produced lots of lightning and strong winds, as shown above when lightning sparked an intense wildfire east of Great Bend. The Salina supercell was rooted in the boundary layer and tried hard to produce a tornado. It also produced hail to golfball size.
