Tornado North Of Wheatland [Gallery]
Severe weather in Wyoming can happen anytime and last Friday was one of those times. Here in Casper we saw some big winds, some pretty good rainfall of about 1/3 of an inch and reports in the area of some heavy hail. North of Wheatland , near Guernsey State Park, one of the rangers caught these pictures as the system passed through.
Photos 1-6 taken , time span was 1409 – 1418 hrs, location was westbound lane [off on shoulder] of Hwy 26 near MM8 or approx 6 miles west of Guernsey – the weather event appeared to be approaching my position – estimated to be approx 1 mile to 1.5 miles to the WSW – in my immediate area no high wind / no rain / no hail, there was no observable wall cloud. Any rotation observable was at ground level and was brown in color possibly dirt/dust debris. Photo 7 was taken from an elevated bluff position in the south end of the park, estimated distance of 7-8 miles.
