5 June 2009

Hotel location:  Sterling, CO

Intercept location:  La Grange, WY

VORTEX2 targeted a right-moving supercell that formed north of Cheyenne, WY. An X-Band radar was sampling the storm as mobile mesonets took measurements within the hook echo and tornado cyclone.  All radars were deployed at the time of tornadogenesis, and valuable dual-Doppler data was collected.  Sticknets, disdrometers all reported good deployments.  3 pre-storm balloon soundings were taken, and 16 during the storm.  Photogrammetry teams were able to perform analyses on the storm.

This remains the best case.
