June 11th, 2006 Scottsbluff, Nebraska Supercell
June 11 was the first day of tour 6. We debated on whether to stay in Colorado or head north. Surface flow and moisture was a bit better north into southwest Nebraska. And after a call from Dave Gold, north we headed. We arrived on the scene near the Scottsbluff National Monument to see a beautifully striated rotating supercell sucking dirt off the top of the monument. This storm did all it could to produce a tornado, even with a strongly rotating lowering on the northeast side of the storm. But it never could quite focus long enough to produce. However the structure was incredible!!!
