It was a pretty ho hum day around my farm until about 3:00 p.m. In the northwest I noticed a dark thunderhead building and went ahead and consulted the NWS radar. A fairly strong storm was moving off the Cheyenne Ridge and a few minutes later went SVR warned for quarter size hail. As it moved southeast, it began to exhibit signs of rotation both visually and on the base velocity. So at 3:40 p.m. I headed northwest and criscrossed back roads to a hill about 4 miles southwest of the locale of Buckingham. I arrived at 3:50 p.m. and watched for the next ten minutes as an impressive wall cloud got its act together and began to rotate furiously. Just before 4:00 p.m. I noticed a slightly wrain wrapped condensation funnel lowering towards the ground from the wall cloud and dust being sucked upwards toward the lowering. Eventually it made contact with the ground shortly before becoming rain wrapped, and I called it in to the NWS before I hightailed south and east to avoid the now massive monster HP supercell.Two minutes after I arrived at my farm, put the truck in the garage and raced into the house, the storm struck. For ten minutes pea to nickel size hail and heavy rain fell almost horizontally out of the north, blown by 70 mph winds. The storm finally cleared out about 45 minutes later, but not before dumping 1 1/2 inches of much needed and welcome rain. The tornado wasn't all that big and was fairly short lived but it still was a tornado! I have a picture of the tornado which I will attempt to post at a later time. A great backyard chase on what appeared at best to be a moderate severe day.
