Day 12 - SE Colorado

SPC Convective Outlook 
SPC Tornado Risk
Surface analysis
Not a huge amount to report today - after lunching in Guymon (OK) we nudged west to Boise City (OK) then north to Springfield (CO) to watch a few marginally-severe storms develop to our west and move slowly towards us. Lightning wasn't particularly frequent, so after a couple of hours parked up listening to thunder and crickets, we gradually headed back to Guymon (OK) for the night, pausing on the way home to watch a gustnado spin in a field next to us. We also sat outside the hotel late evening to watch a storm flashing away to our south - so we've seen lightning every day except one during this trip.

This was likely our last chase day, as we have a couple of days left with very little organised storm activity forecast before we fly back to the UK at the end of the week.
