Depart Salina and transit to area NE of Greeley Colorado. Transit altitudes out of SLN included time at FL140, FL200, & FL260. “L” patterns around cell area were initially at FL140, FL100, & FL080 sampling storm inflow atmosphere. Track storm system to the NE repeating “L” pattern with altitudes ranging from FL170 to 5,300 ft. MSL. Transit to downwind side of storm system and spiral to FL360. Fly four steps of ladder pattern in cirrus clouds of storm anvil sampling storm outflow atmosphere. Return to Salina. NCAR GV participated at high altitude downwind of storms during this same period.
