As with some of our other most fruitful storm-intercept days, this one featured several supercells and concluded with a wonderful display on the back side of the main area of storms. Quite often, we'll wheel around to the upshear side of storms before sunset, and this is why. The day's final sunbeams found a window through growing piles of elevated convection to our W and NW, casting the eastern sky in a brief but glorous golden glow.
