Monday in Review

Today was our last chase day, it was a success! We drove from Amarillo, Texas to southeastern New Mexico to capitalize on the orographic convective initiation off the Sangre de Cristo mountains. As the day went on we seemed to scare the storms out of growing but we ended up in the right place at the right time for the most photogenic super-cell of the day. Today was overall a great day to recap everything we learned about super-cell formation and getting to see it all in action. We got to see multiple well defined super-cells, experience the collision of multiple storms, and even witness a tornado warned storm rotate right above our heads. The last chase day of SWIFT 2017 went better than foretasted and was a great way to end a great trip!
