06/20/04 NOW: CO, WY

Larry J. Kosch

Thought I would get this NOW thread going before leaving for Father's Day activities. NWS is having a MSC discussion about setting up a WW for WY and CO. NWS radar out of Denver/Boulder is showing a large group of storms coming over the Rockies. One storm in particular is growing north of Colorado Springs. Looks like Tony Laubach (WX NERD) is getting his wish for a Mother Nature show! 8) LJK.
 
Tornado near Calhan, CO

Just got off the phone with Jason Politte, who witnessed a brief tornado near Calhan CO about 3 hours ago, 20Z-ish. (Don't have the exact time, since I wasn't nowcasting at the time...Father's Day commitments)

That storm has since been undercut and died, with a new storm forming to its southwest. However, outflow-reinforced boundary has surged south, undercutting that storm as well. He is re-vectoring towards the new cell SSE of PUX...it's riding very close to the boundary, and may already be undercut, but its radar presentation is still pretty nice.
 
* AT 415 PM MDT...A TORNADO WAS REPORTED OVER NORTHEASTERN PUEBLO
COUNTY...OR ABOUT 24 MILES NORTHEAST OF PUEBLO...AND WAS MOVING
SOUTHEAST AT 20 MPH.


Really nice hook echo on the radar image right now, and at this time it looks as if the "eagle" is about to take "flight". Never understood what that meant/how that works, they whole "flying eagle" thing.
