Chaser friend Skip Talbot created this lapse ... probably my favorite storm lapse to date. This one really hurts ... since I busted (in relative terms) near Storm Lake, IA. A remarkable lapse that illustrates many, many storm-scale features -- a must show for any mesoscale course. The "heat" ramps up about 3:45 pm. Hold on to your chair!
