Chase day 18 Oklahoma and Texas Reports and pictures

Recommended Posts

The day didn't pan out as expected . May be mother nature hadn't read the SPC discussion.  However on the drive down from Mulvane Kansas a huge storm blew up over Lawton Ok.  No one knows why a storm developed where it did but it reached an altitude of 50,000 feet.   Nice to see. 

 

We stopped south of Lawton and gambled on one of three cells that blew up on the dry line doing the business. However the dry line move east and messed our day. 

 

Here you can see the storm over Lawton. It was huge we could see it a hundred miles away.

Not sure which video this is could  be two storms firing on the dry line or a turtle.

That's one of the great hings about chasing, the unpredictability of it! 

 

Great to see a cell go to 50k feet though.......it looks like an absolute monster.

Now that is LARGE, no the storm cloud not the turtle, great shot Tom.

As to the turtle, take it to Eastern Oklahoma and let it go, there's plenty of water there..

Tom, you could have stopped in "The Museum of the Great Plains" in Lawton if you had a few mins to spare.

This is the one with the two cells on.

We sat and waited to see what was going to happen with the three cells we were watching.   Paul looked at them and could see that they were not exploding and was concerned that the dry line had moved east. It had.  Although at one point we could see storms building up to the west of our target cells. 

 

You can see them through the gap.

So we decided not waste the time hanging round and washed of the underneath of the vans , in a puddle.  The museum did look interesting.

 

We have spent the night in Childress, The Days Inn, ah fond memories.

Was looking so promising when I left the live feed and went to bed. 

 

The cell you were under had a gorgeous inflow band and did seem to show signs of some rotation.

 

I went to sleep thinking you had it nailed... :cray:

I spent most of last night watching Matt Olbinski and the chasers around the Texas storm. Was quite interesting.
