SWIFT 2014 Day 9 (18 May 2014): Beautiful supercell Newcastle, WY

Today we started our journey leaving from Cheyenne, Wyoming. We saw two blips and chased the northern storm into northern Nebraska. We then tracked a rotating wall cloud to about 15 miles west of Newcastle. We experience little rain and very small sized hail. At 5:42 MT time we reported a funnel cloud that was rotating about halfway between the wall cloud and the ground before dissipating. We later learned that the southern storm in Scottsbluff, NE had formed into a tornado. There was also a tornado in Montana close to the city of Belle Creek.
