Day 2 and 3 Recap

Day 2 featured an impressive drive from Fort Smith, Arkansas to Odessa, TX. We left early Friday morning and hauled down to I-20 and intercepted some storms east of the Midland/Odessa area. The storms fired too early for us to get there at the peak before it became a cluster of intense storms. We witnessed some impressive lightning and small hail, as well as some flash flooding in Midland.

Day 3 (Saturday) featured a marginal threat. The upper level low providing the kick for storms to develop stayed north into New Mexico and we were left hanging out in a park in Monahans, TX with no storms to chase. The night ended with a fabulous chinese buffet in Odessa which offered up some of the freshest sushi one could find.

Today may feature trying to get into a little hail near Childress, Tx and then more storms look possible Monday-Weds.
