Chase Recap:

Jari and I decided to team up with JR Hehnly for a potential few days of chasing in Kansas. We headed out the 27th and headed up to a target near Russel, KS.

Unfortunately we stuck with the southern storms the whole day, expecting the energy moving out of Colorado to blow storms along the dryline. It did, but the only tornado of the day happened to be way north and was rain-wrapped as can be.

We ended up getting some decent pictures of structure near Ellsworth, KS before giving up and going to Salina, KS for the night
