April 14-15, 2012 Chase

Traveled to Nebraska to get on the High Risk for tornadoes. Cells fired way off to the west and we headed East toward Des Moines, Iowa to spend the night. We had an excellent lightning show near Des Moines of the severe warned cell that was racing north fast.
Cells rapidly organized in the warm sector and raced North in Watonwan County MN not long before producing brief tornadoes straight north near the boundary up in McLeod County MN. 
Was a fun ending to a great long distance chase across the Plains & Upper Midwest!
 Here is a picture of the cell in Watonwan County and our chase route map of the weekend.
