Chase Log

August 23rd, 2007 Colorado Supercells

August 23rd featured decent shear with upslope surface winds in Colorado and 35 knots mid level flow. My plan was to play the Palmer Divide and then follow storms as the built southeast. Morning stratus hindered surface heating. Cells developed in a cool surface environment where intense shear was coupled with good moisture but limited instability. Two supercells formed that I chased, both producing large hail. The first supercell was also tornado warned.
