Wednesday 29th June 2022 – North Dakota (Enhanced Risk)

After a few down days and some Astro Photography which even featured weak Aurora we were back into the last 3 days of Storm Action. Starting today in Glendive (MT) the Models were once again struggling like crazy putting initiation all over the place. The SPC had the 2% Tornado Risk in NE North Dakota but that area looked completely capped to me so after having lunch in Bismarck I wasnt going any further east. We actually dropped South to the SD/ND Border and watched some storms that initiated North of the Black Hills roll towards us. But the show was about to start with an arcing line of Supercells erupting near Bowman and it was these we set a course for. The late initiation of these storms meant we only had 90 minutes to enjoy them though.

We simply did not have enough time for these storms to structure up and Sunset Lightning was once again all that was on offer.


On the drive to our Hotel for the night there was some lovely mammatus on the back edge of the storms now to our east.
