Great Day for a Chase?

Today the SWIFT team was looking forward to a day with possible supercells and maybe, just maybe, tornadoes. After the brief at 0715, the team decided to stay in Scottsbluff, NE to wait for storms to develop along the cold front and move Eastward. While waiting, the SWIFTers decided to hike to Chimney Rock and pass the time waiting for the potential afternoon storms. Our hopes for storms along the cold front were dashed when new models put more storm development in Central and Eastern Nebraska. However, no storms developed in our new target area and the team ended up staying the night in Lincoln, NE. Maybe our new target area in Iowa tomorrow will be better!
