May 15-31, 2009

These were the dates for my annual chasecation...the last 2 weeks in May of 2009. A strong ridge of high pressure was in place across the plains...preventing supercells from forming. Despite some action during the early part of the month...May 2009 went down as the least active May since 1992 with only 100 Severe and Tornado Watches issued! The only action was a garden variety thunderstorm I caught near Flint on May 29th.
