I'm working on a list of some of 2004's more impressive supercells but only in the central plains confined by SD, IA, CO/WY, KS, OK, n TX, sw MN. Can anyone add to these?

3-27 sups
4-21 OK sup
5-9 sux
5-10 CO
5-12 sc KS
5-16 KS/NE
5-21 ne NE, nw IA, c IA
5-22 NE/IA sups(but might forget some as there are a ton)
5-24 sc NE, nw MO
5-29 nc KS, nw MO, sc KS, OKC
6-10 sw NE, sc NE
6-11 IA
6-12 sc KS
6-13 e NE
7-7 nc KS
7-12 c NE
7-31 se SD
8-26 sw IA

I'm trying to remember the day a month or so ago that CO beast tracked east and some of the dates of any TX supercells and other OK supercells. Basically trying not to leave out any sup that either looked good on radar and/or produced a tornado. Thanks.

Thanks all. I think people are going to crap when they see this map, if I ever finish it.

Well I'm not trying to track every new meso through every storm's track. All I'm doing is finding a good radar image of as many good storms as I can and using the image just once somewhere along it's track, wherever it looked the best.
 
What would be really cool is a zoomed in shot of all of the supecells. Then use all of those to make a big mosaic photo of a supercell. Turn it into a poster and wham. That would be tight.

Hey that would be cool. And what is coolest about this idea is I'll already have all the data....lol. All I'll have to do is save zoomed in images instead of fully wide. Right now I'm basically plastering NE and IA with all different supercells. I'm wondering what supercells there were in central KS this year to help fill that in a bit as well as areas of OK and CO. South central KS is fine...lol. North central KS is fine, as is nw MO. So far it's amazing to look at. It gives one an idea what kind of year it really was. I keep stumbling onto more and more impressive supercells. July 7 nc KS is one example. There are a few areas that are very interesting how close sups were to the same spot on many days. 5-12, 6-12, 5-29 sc KS all very close.....7-7, 5-29, 5-24 nc KS all very close, nw MO has some too as does se corner of SD.

What software are you using to snap images? I believe the GRlevelX series does, and can also grab the world file associated with them. THEN you could import them in correct size over GIS data... such as State/counties... COOL!

I'm not sure how you are going about doing it (cut and paste or what?).
 
Have at it then...lol.

I'm working on a list of some of 2004's more impressive supercells but only in the central plains confined by SD, IA, CO/WY, KS, OK, n TX, sw MN. Can anyone add to these?
 
Mike - cool idea - very cool map.

I can see where this may be a colossal undertaking, though - too bad you can't get imagery for 5/29 and 8/26 ... those days had some great supe reflectivities.
