Limon, Co chase was a very exciting one, got to learn how the mountain setups work. Was in a really good area for tornadic conditions, but this cell went south east instead of north east, so I had to catch up to it. was watching little lp cells during the early afternoon and then seen this on radar and quickly got on the road to chase. as I was headed east on Hwy 86, I was watching this cell which really looked very low contrast and was hard to see anything. Then when I pulled over on a side street, I seen what I thought was a gustnado, but after review and confirmation from other spotters, it was an actual tornado. This was my first tornado of 2018 chase season. Afterwards I got a meet a nice group of chasers-students from Virginia Tech and also Brian Noble who reside out in Colorado. Was a fun chase day.
