April 14, 2012 Byron, NE Tornado
April 14th was a High risk day for Nebraska and Kansas. Jeff’s original target was down south in Kansas, but when the high risk came out for Nebraska too Jeff decided to stay to be in WOWT viewing area if things should form nearby. We intercepted the first tornado warning of the day in Nebraska just west of Byron, NE. We saw a brief tornado come down and continue its way for us. We got out of its way as it was lifting and got stuck in the mud on a low maintained road. This put us behind the storm and out of position to catch more stuff later that day. The warm front stalled and never made it up into Nebraska which produced many tornadoes in Kansas instead.
