Nov 10th Cold Core Tornado Event

Mike Umscheid captured a tornado on Nov 10th in Southwest KS, this was a cold core event. To view his pictures and read about the anomaly then go to his blog! Mike: "I chased and photographed my first November tornado earlier this afternoon at around 3:30pm CST. This tornado was on the ground for ~ 7 to 10 minutes northwest of Johnson, KS about 3 to 4 miles or so. I photographed the tornado from Hwy 27 just a couple miles north of town. Below are two photos. The first is the supercell storm earlier on about 10 miles SSE of Manter, KS as it was entering Stanton County. The 2nd photo shows the tornado in its mature, large stage. It briefly took on a wedge shape appearance, as is shown. The immediate inflow air into this storm was ~ 53 degrees temperature over ~ 47 degree dewpoint. Incredible!! "
