Storms of 2012 - Jeff Frame
Minnesota Shelf Cloud

Minnesota Shelf Cloud

For me, chasing isn't all about the tornadoes. It really isn't. On this last day of the June 2012 trip, however, I opted to target the triple point between an outflow boundary and a cold front in western Minnesota in an attempt to score some of the students their first tornado. The morning convection never stopped, and the only photo opportunity of the day (in stark contrast to the previous day), came at an I-90 rest area as we were heading to the hotel. Taken southwest of Rochester, MN, June 14, 2012.
