Chasecation 2019 Day 2 – High Plains Hopes

Our first day met/slightly exceeded our expectations in western Nebraska as we hopped from cell to cell looking for a bit of lightning to use as our warm-up for the bigger storm days ahead. We managed to find a couple of storms, the later of which produced a decent amount of lightning post-sunset.

We will continue to drift around the central High Plains today and Thursday, looking for whatever storms pop in the area. Thursday could be a potentially good “day before the day” setup as we wait for the main trough to arrive on Friday.
