Chase: Thursday, May 29, 2014
Since we had a long drive into the early morning hours we held our briefing at 11 am. It was decided that we would head south to Bismark, North Dakota. We ate lunch once we arrived and then headed to a park to hang out until storms started to initiate. We didn't have to wait long until we were on the road to see some developing storms west of Bismark near Richardton, North Dakota. We watched the line of storms for a while and it was producing some photogenic rain cores and had some very weak areas of rotation on the leading edge. The storms quickly dissipated as the inflow in them cooled.
