I went storm chasing and I didn’t see much today. In fact, I probably would have seen more by staying home. However, it is that time of year to take to the open roads in search of storms. So, I went. I intercepted a huge gustnado. Total fun but now the inside of my car needs a bath. Then I shot this:
Severe thunderstorms graced the state of Kansas this afternoon and evening. Nothing too exciting. Just some hail, wind, heavy rain, and lighting. Weak upper level winds prevented prevented the storms from becoming more than what they ended up being. The temperature/dewpoint spread kept the storms elevated. For tornado chasing, this is undesirable, however, for lightning photography this is preferable.
