Western, KS May 16, 2013

Date: 16 May 2013

Location: Western KS – Edson to near Winona.

Summary:   Headed east out of Elizabeth to a Goodland, KS Target. Storms began to fire even before I left home in Yuma County, CO. I debated about even going but the little voice in my head said it was chase season, get your ass out and chase! So I shot out the door and headed to Goodland. I was getting reports from Scott Hammel as he was on the storms while they were still in CO and decided I was going to head to Edson and just wait for them. As the storm approached it really wasn’t that impressive. There were a number of gustnadoes out ahead of it as it was outflow dominant pretty much the entire chase. I stair stepped on the back roads to stay ahead of it. It just never could come together. I chased it to near Winona and called it a day. One of those days I should have listened to my gut instead of looking at the radar and going bonkers.

High based and unimpressive as it approaches Edson, KS.
