July 8, 2009 Northeast Wyoming Supercells

July 8th I couldn’t resist the drive to northeast Wyoming and southwest North Dakota for what looked like a decent setup. A slowly advancing cold front, along with a dryline intercepting it, ample moisture and instability, would provide a favorable environment for severe storms, supercells and tornadoes. Unfortunately, that rare occurance that the triple point didn’t produce a long lived supercell, while tornadic supercells formed north and south of us came to a reality. Still, we had two nicely structured supercells, the latter of which shown above came very close to producing a tornado.
