Pence KS

May 21, 2016

This was the first day of a multi-day setup and it kicked off our long weekend chase trip with a bang! I targeted Scott City, Kansas, and so Mike, Anne, Scott, Mackay and I set out from Oklahoma City to get into position. We arrived in the mid-afternoon and watched the entire lifecycle of storms as they developed from the cumulous field. One supercell became dominant and went on to produce at least two tornadoes that we could confirm, as well as absolutely stunning storm structure.
