On Wednesday, May 1, this supercell west of Utica, KS was like a giant vacuum cleaner in the sky, sucking up dirt and tumbleweeds for miles around. I have a feeling we're going to see many more of these roaming the plains soon!

On Wednesday, May 1, this scene was reported as a large looming in the darkness. The town of Utica, KS in its path was on high alert with law enforcement driving up and down the streets with sirens to warn people. I see a couple tornado-like features here, including wrapping cyclonic rain curtains and possibly an RFD cut. On the other hand, after dark everything looks like a tornado. No tornado was confirmed.

Saturday I was on a storm west of Scott City, KS when it went tornado-warned. No tornadoes but the crepuscular rays and rainbow projected onto windblown mist were on point.

Thursday I was on the tornado-warned storm south of Bird City, Kansas. A was reported back in the darkness but I was stopped from going in for a closer look by muddy roads.
