Being relatively local to the area, I decided to go out and sample the remnants of Ida today. In the early afternoon, a persistently rotating cell cruised up southern MD and entered a pocket of enhanced 3CAPE around the Annapolis, MD area. I believe tornadogenesis may have occurred just south of Edgewater, MD, and I was able to get this view of the nascent tornado from a beautiful mall parking lot. Unfortunately, there was no catching back up to the storm once it had passed me by -- a common theme in chasing, but especially true in heavily populated areas.
