Area Chased:  SW KS

Discussion: Jeff Lawson, Scott Blair, and I observed a gorgeous shelf cloud in SW Kansas.  We observed storms developing near the town of Johnson, Kansas, which quickly became outflow dominant and morphed into a shelf cloud.  We stopped near Sublette, Kansas, to watch the huge wind power generators.
