On a day when there was not much hope, I caught a high based supercell near Limon, Colorado. This storm formed off the Palmer Divide and produced baseball sized hail and 70 mph winds. The set up was not great with modest upslope flow, 50 Tds and weak shear. Check out the photos below for structure of this storm. It also had a respectable looking shelf cloud and an attempt at a wall cloud in the notch of this supercell.
