Chase Log – May 8, 2017 – Northeast Colorado

Who Chased? Chris and Rachel

This Monday in eastern Colorado didn’t promise to be a big tornado day, with only a Slight Risk from SPC and a meager 2% Tornado Risk. Colorado is Colorado though, so you just never know.

After rushing east from Denver on I-70, we reached the small town of Agate in Elbert County. We found an accessible dirt road south of town where we had a good view to the south. The storm formed a small funnel cloud that made for a good timelapse. We ran into fellow chasers Stephen Jones and Aaron Rigsby, who confirmed that this funnel touched down briefly in open country. We could not verify ground circulation from our vantage point. Check out the video below.
