Here is a prime example of "Colorado Magic". The chase was started at 3:00pm MDT. Leaving Colorado Springs going east, things were looking marginal. In doing a radar reading in Flagler... a cell looked pretty interesting moving southeast. On prime target for the intercept on the I 70 eastbound. We intercepted the cell going into rotation on the southwest side. A direct position for hi-contrast photos and observation of this event.
This chase in east Colorado was July 22nd of 2009.
This chase was really good in the fact that we did not expect any activity as per the SPC probabilities for this day. In catching thi supercell at its initiation, we chased this one all the way to Cheyenne Wells... A good two and a half hour chase. In capturing so many photos of the sun glowing shades of orange to purple... we had to limit the amount of photos. A video of the event will be posted on this page soon.
