The prospects for an autumn chase in Virginia aren’t good this year. In past years I haven’t ruled out chasing until Veterans’ Day (Nov. 11th) so I haven’t completely given up hope…yet.

Meanwhile here’s a wall cloud I observed 4 years ago today in Spotsylvania county. This was looking north from Chancellorsville Battlefield.

It was one of at least 3 wall clouds I saw that day. SPC website shows 14 tornado reports that day, all in Virginia, but I didn’t see any funnels or tornadoes.
