07/09/2004 NOW: Central High Plains

Storms firing in Wyoming; severe storm warnings north of Cheyenne. Also storms trying to go up west of Denver and drift east onto the Plains.

Although not chasing, maybe I'll catch a good storm between jobs this afternoon, and since I am driving pizzas tonight, maybe get under one then, too! In either case, storms are going up.
 
Actually, a nice looking echo showing up west of Denver.. although stuff around it seems to be moving off towards the east, the highest DZBs seem to be stationary. The northern fringe of this storm has drifted into the Wheat Ridge/Arvada areas north of I-70 on the west side of town. This cell then falls back to the south and west towards the foothills near Evergreen and Conifer. May start to hear of flooding or small hail from this in the not too distant future. DBZs of 60 in a pretty solid area of this storm from I-70 south.
