    Ok day 6, we headed out of Brady TX and headed SW once again to find a line, the line didnt look as active as the days before but we jumped onto the most promising cell which went Tornadic! now that was all well and good but we played starty stoppy again runnig east away from the blinding rain and hail, however we were so Close to Tornado 3 it hurt a circulation started not 20 meters from us on the road it was cool and doing all the right things cloud motions started to condence in one spot movement was running in along the bottom and top of beaver tail then it started to rotate, then it got a tad windy-----very blinking windy, we were in the suck zone! blimey that really was strong sucking air from north to south across the front of the line ---- we had to flee just stayed long enough to see our circulation swamped my the rain, this was off the highway 190 near Menard tx we shot east into Menard where Tornado Sirens were wailing, and quicly realised a new cell had formed just to our SE we had to make a 80mph run for clear air, and you guessed it we got caught again, however not to bad and with some careful driving we punched out using the Baron to time our escape.

    Great CGs today fab thunder ended up facing the line at back at Brady took cover with our American Pals Leu and Fred outside a high school and faced the demon, it was quite intence but no Tornado that we see although several reports of Tornado from the SE cell as well as the one that passed Menard.

    all in all fab day, some fantastic photo ops, here is one from Pete the Brit aka Peter Scott.post-110-1178772955_thumb.jpg

    and another by me post-110-1178773316_thumb.jpg

    Great shelf cloud photos there Steve, been some good storm structures to photograph for both teams over TX these last few days. Currently got a storm flashing nearby us in Ardmore OK - seems to be strengthening a little but, but mostly non-severe storms that formed around the DFW area earlier moving North.

    Paul and Stuart are out taking some lightning photos while the rest of us are chilling out indoors with some Buds.

    Good pics Steve. That first one shows that real green tint - which i've been told is indicative of hail!

      Cool Showerfest continues for the next week. Hints of a change beyond that?

      With the jet stream close to the south and low pressure nearby over the next 7 days, expect showers or longer spells of rain over many areas, staying cool too, with temperatures below average. But hints of something drier and more settled arriving next weekend. View the full blog here
