The first chase of the year, we hooked up with our chase partners at Highways and Hailstones, pre-forecasted our target location of Winfield, Kansas.
We didn’t see a major tornado, but what we found near Cedar Vale, Kansas came as quite the surprise.
Had the girls in the back seat not turned around to see a funnel cloud reaching down from the sky, we may have missed this tornado. It developed out of a non-severe thunderstorm, one that barely had any rain in it. None the less, this EF-0 quickly made our adrenaline pump.
