This post is less of a chase log and more of a dump of photos. June 25th featured an enhanced risk of severe storms in Southeast Nebraska and Northeast Kansas into Missouri as a frontal boundary was forecast to sag across the Missouri Valley.
I was working, so didn’t anticipate chasing, however, when I stepped outside of work I could see some mammatus south of town.
So, I checked out the radar and noted a rather robust storm to the south of Hastings and decided it might be worth checking out.
By the time I got to Hastings, the storm threw out an outflow boundary along it’s western half and it was already behind an outflow boundary from a previous storm, so I wasn’t expecting much in the way of low level organization. I drove through the core of the storm east of Red Cloud and didn’t experience anything too exciting despite the reports of golf ball sized hail west of Blue Hill.
I decided to return to the north and let the storm go by, and when I got back to Blue Hill the mammatus display on the back side of the storm was just gettin’ started!
