July 5th, Holloway MN

Initial Target: Central Minnesota
Starting From: Altoona, IA
Ending: Altoona, IA

Storm Intercepts: Well…

Features: Wall of water
States: Iowa, Minnesota

Miles: 738

Summary: High Precipitation (HP) Crapola

700+ mile bust in Minnesota. Storms fired early and quickly merged into a mess, so everything worth chasing went high-precipitation almost immediately. Lots of radar-indicated tornadoes (dozens, in fact) yet all we could see was a literal wall of water as the tornadoes were wrapped up in torrential rain. Very few pictures or visual tornado confirmations from anyone coming out of this mess. Still a fun trip, though. Every chase is a learning experience. Bonus: We were home by midnight.
