Omaha, Nebraska Storms

April 23, 2010

There was a 10% tornado risk in southeastern Nebraska and a slightly higher risk in Arkansas. Being that we liked to SEE tornadoes, we headed toward the Nebraska target. The low that had produced the tornadoes the day before was entering somewhat of an occluded phase, so the forcing really looked to be weak. There were no sharp boundaries. Just as we were giving up, new storms developed, and we were treated to a little show at supper.
