Friday Storms

* Yesterday was a game of "wait for the cap to break" as we sat in various parks across southern Oklahoma. Very warm and humid/unstable air built underneath a strong cap and eventually a few storms broke through the cap. We intercepted the first storm about 15 miles north of Ardmore OK to find some small hail and a couple of nice wall clouds including a few brief funnel clouds. The storms were "splitting" which made it a little messy and tough see much visibly, but we did have about 10 or 15 minutes to view the wall clouds below...
