Chase Recap:

Drove up with higher hopes of a nice tail end charlie storm. A tornado watch was issued as we were getting to Blackwell, and I headed west towards the cu field developing west of Alva.

Unfortunately by the time it came into view it was obvious the cu was evaporating. It seems like subsidence air had moved in, and all updrafts seemed to die including a storm south of the main (and only show) near Salina.

We drove north and sat for a bit before heading back to I-35 and having Mexican food in Blackwell.
