Summary

Intercepted three tornadoes across NE Colorado on a 5% day. First tornado spun up under one of the earlier cells that popped closer to Denver. Hi-rez models consistently ex cells going up further east later so as soon as the earlier cells showed signs of weakening I blasted east. I made it to the first cell just in time to intercept a tornado near Eckley. Unfortunately I spent too much time moving north on a muddy road to get closer. That cost me a close encounter with the catch of the day, an EF2 tornado near Wray.
