Chase Report

April 25, 2008 - Oconomowoc W to Cambridge library for data fix. Decided to go after southern branch of squall line on the theory of slightly higher temperature differential between cold and warm fronts.

NW to Waunakee, intercepted squall line. Chased it back east. Finally County F, 2mi S of Ixonia caught some rotation but that's about it. See video.

Naturally it was the northern branch that spawned a tornado near Wyocena. Note to self: always make decisions on the theory that it's Columbia county. See NWS report.
