10 and 11 June 2010 Severe Weather

The storm reports from Thursday 10 June 2010 for Colorado. There was a moderate risk for severe weather, the bullseye was just over Northerneastern Colorado. I've never seen a risk this high, and especially not in Colorado. The risk for tornado was pretty high too.

With these forecasts out, it looked like it would be a pretty epic day. However, that isn't how it played out. I would have loved to have chased these storms yesterday, and would have chased all over waiting for them to initiate and develop. Of course, looking at the storm report map, there were tornadoes and hail reports all over the place. However, none of the tornadoes that happened, were in the moderate risk "bullseye". So, technically a bust on that part. I'm not pointing fingers, just saying what I observed. Of course I was "chasing" these storms via radar and computer about 800 miles away or so.

Today, on the other hand was a pretty good forecast day. I won't post reports or maps yet, as today is still occurring and there will be more storms through the night.
