Friday 11th May 2018 – Wyoming (Slight Risk)

Started today in Ogallalla and the SPC had a very small Slight Risk and very small 2% Tornado risk over the Laramie Divide east of Cheyenne. Storms would form over the Rockies and move onto the lower elevations but persistant stratus over adjacent Nebraska would mean any storms that do form would have a very narrow window to produce either Supercellular characteristics or indeed a shot at a Tornado. Storms struggled initially but one tried to go severe west of La Grange and we were in good position to briefly see a weak LP Supercell before it evaporated before our eyes. A very low key day but Sunday and Monday were looking much better in Colorado with a Denver Cyclone setting up shop.
