Wheeler county texas storm

Eric and I hung out just north of Elk City, OK for most of the afternoon chatting with Fred Plowman and talking to Randy Denzer on the phone while we waited for mother nature to start her show. Randy let me know that a cell was starting to form near Wheeler, TX so we shot east on hw152 to intercept it near Mobeetie, TX (above).

The cell above already had good rainshaft/updraft separation and a few times tried to spin up some scud from almost ground level. We followed the cell to Reydon, OK where we were temped away by the storms forming along the dryline to the south of Elk City, OK.

As we drove away towards Grimes, OK we were looking back to the cell and could see it was dropping a significant lowering! We decided another look was needed so we intercepted the cell again just to the west of Cheyenne, OK. Here the updraft was doing a 'slow dance' and pulling scud off the ground in a very very slow spiral. It was at this time that Heidi Ferrar and Reed Timmer called me to ask if the storm was high based. It had gone tornado warned and was looking very intense and seemed it would produce at any moment. As the storm passed over us near Strong City, OK on hw283 it had it's best attempt yet with a lowering off to our northwest and then a spiral that went straight overhead as the TIV2 and doghouse support vehicles rolled by.

The storm once again had it's shot but fell short and we could see the base was raising again so this time we really did shoot south of I-40 getting their right at dark to see the most amazing meso below!
