September 17th was a surprise for me. I wasn’t planning on a local chase, but by mid afternoon towers developed along a boundary and I couldn’t resist. The result was one of the prettiest September supercells I have ever seen! This storm was tornado warned for 3 hours, produced golf ball sized hail and also several funnels. I intercepted it north of Seibert and followed it north of Stratton and eventually southeast of Burlington, CO.
This day didn’t look like much chance of severe storms, but it did offer the chance for local storms with decent lightning. Nature did not disappoint! Caryn and I went out east of town and had a blast! Several storms were prolific lightning makers and offered great lightning captures.
