With ripening conditions this afternoon showing the town of Culpeper as the bullseye (e.g. supercell composite value of 4 was centered there) my son and I left for that vicinity just before 5 pm this afternoon to await convection. We wound up chasing down a storm system in southeastern Orange county where I shot this rainbow:

After that storm died out we motored through the town of Orange to catch up with a couple of promising cells in Madison county, but they too died before we could reach them. I’ll post more pictures at a later date as tomorrow looks even better. Just hope I can make the time to chase!
