July 13th, 2006 Greeley, Nebraska Supercell
July 13th had a great set up potential for Nebraska. Strong shear, a nice boundary and mid 70s dewpoints would all come together and produce a nice supercell in north central Nebraska. I came from Grand Island north to catch it. SPC mesoanalysis page showed the best of the best conditions feeding into that storm! (I just couldn’t go for the elevated trashy crap heading towards OMA) I sat just south of Greeley to watch it before heading west towards Ord. I was looking west at it, and it had a nice soda can/bell shape to it. Nice structure, tried to produce, but just couldn’t. Typical 2006. The core had solid 1.5″ to 2″ diameter hail from it. I also encountered winds gusting to 82 MPH (measured!) not far from Greeley when it gusted out.
