May 26th Eastern Colorado Tornado Warned Supercell

May 26th took us to eastern Colorado to play upslope off the Palmer Divide. Strong shear, decent moisture and instability would set the stage for several severe storms.  The best of these would form and move into far east central Colorado by later afternoon.  Although higher based, this supercell would become tornado warned and produce a couple brief spin ups.  Hail was up to baseball sized and the structure was very nice. The storm eventually merged into a cluster as it moved into western Kansas during the evening.
