Day 6 Recap

Today was a fun and successful day for the MSU Storm Chase. We chased a supercell from near Dumas, TX to Stinnett, TX and witnessed beautiful supercell structure including numerous wall clouds, funnels, hail, and the coveted tornado near Stinnett. The students had a chance to also witness an incredible amount of chaser convergence as Vortex 2 and every storm chase group under the moon found themselves on this beastly storm.

We were very fortunate to have a good road to stay just ahead of the storm and also a slow moving storm to give us ample opportunities to take photographs and video.

Below are a few of the shots from our different vantage points today.

The fun doesn't stop today as another outbreak of supercells and tornadoes is expected tomorrow across Oklahoma and far northern Texas. The Storm Prediction Center has placed this area in a Moderate Risk, so we'll be there and hope for another successful day.
