Belated 3/23 Chase Report

We had a nice cloudy drive to Wichita on Sunday and woke up in the target area Monday morning. We intercepted our first supercell near Kingman, Ks but it quickly left us in the dust as it appeared to be on the verge of tornadoing somewhere near Cheney Reservoir. We drove back to Wichita and south on I-35 as storms were beginning to erupt in northern Oklahoma way too early. We got position on the dominant supercell just east of South Haven, Ks. The storm was rather elongated but managed to produce a few brief tornadoes. Overall, the setup failed to meet our expectations but we had a nice go of it for the first chase of 2009.

In other news, it appears we are in for some heavy snow here in Western Littleton. I'm looking for 15-20 inches here at the house before all is set and done. I will possibly be shooting some heavy snow action tomorrow. Look for winter weather updates.

Great photos, Sean. I'm kicking myself for not taking enough stills. Boo. :)
