Holy s**t at this video of a tornado hitting a ski resort in France earlier today. According to the ESWD, at least one person was injured.


Meanwhile, Russia is still doing Russia things and spawning its own naders:

Major respect to storm chasers in other countries who are mimicking what remains of the logical side of storm chasing here in the states. No one speeding past one another on the highway trying to outdo the chaser in front of them, not trying to get themselves killed just to get some upclose footage, just spreading weather awareness and getting good footage from a safe distance.

I noticed numerous newer chasers on YouTube doing livestreams today, haven't checked them. I didn't expect anything because nobody mentioned anything here.

Now this is definitely unusual for my area. I live around Grand Junction, Colorado.
...Four Corners into WY...
Water vapor imagery shows a well-defined upper trough over NV, with
an associated 40+kt mid-level speed max tracking from northern AZ
into UT/CO. Beneath this strengthening wind field and large-scale
ascent, considerable low-level moisture is present today with
dewpoints in the 50s across much eastern UT/western CO and southwest
WY. Pockets of strong daytime heating will lead to scattered
afternoon thunderstorms. Vertical shear profiles will promote
supercell storm structures capable of hail and damaging winds for
several hours this afternoon and evening.

You should go out and chase. There is a non-negligible chance for the shot of a lifetime with a supercell and the crazy scenery in W CO/Moab/etc. today.

If I didn’t have plans with my kids this afternoon I’d be heading out. Already a severe thunderstorm warning for south Salt Lake County.

It’s “humid” here with Dewpoints in the upper 40s/low 50s.
