June 20th, 2006 Northeast Colorado Supercells
A few boundaries, good shear and adequate moisture would allow supercells to develop in northeast Colorado and western Nebraska. We first targeted a supercell and complex northeast of Alliance, but when we saw it was a left split we blew it off (mistake as it produced tornadoes!). The storms in Colorado were quite outflow dominant, except for the third supercell which was a respectable classic supercell near Yuma. The Colorado storms never produced tornadoes, but did have nice structure, lots of lightning and hail to baseball size.
