TORNADO Warned Storm between #Melville - #Yorkton Sk. Caught 3 Tornadoes!
This was just shortly before tornado 3 just South of Yorkton.
A really intense chase day with little sleep, as I got back from chasing in Val Marie, earlier the same morning!
Started off the chase by heading to Meville and meeting with fellow chaser Craig Boehm at the Co-Op Gas station. We say there for some 20 minutes as to when a pixel formed on Radarscope so we then moved to the dirt pile on HWY 47 just off to the side of the road. Shortly after that, this storm blew the hell up and it's echo tops were sitting at something like 56,000 feet already!
I knew at this point, this day was going to be intense!
Just a few minutes after that, We filmed the 1st TORNADO, just a tad west of Melville Sk. on hwy 47 as it went right across the highway!
Roughly 10 minutes later, it dropped a 2nd TORNADO, pretty much the same area but this time on the North side of the hwy.
From there, we went East and caught up to the Shelf Cloud which we watched for some time. After that, went East through Melville and stayed with the Beast of a storm and then headed North down HWY 9 beack towards Yorkton.
We pulled over for a but to observe as I seen a tight Wall Cloud forming as well as insane structure with a leading line.
At one point (and of course we can not confirm) but it DID look like a Large TORNADO on the ground to the North West of where we were sitting!
From there we went forward and at this point was just past Leech Lake on hwy 9 just a few miles South of Yorkton ... right beside up was a Large TORNADO!
We ended the chase day eating Steaks and seeing some pretty amazing Mammatus Clouds!
