May 20 Storms

It was a fun day for the MSU Chase Team as we departed McPherson, KS and headed west to Belpre, KS to intercept a multi-cell storm that eventually split and weakened. We chose to dive south to a developing storm near Greensburg, KS and followed that as it began taking on supercell characteristics including a weakly rotating wall cloud and nice structure. New storms formed on its southern flank and produced hail in Pratt, KS. We then began our trek south to Enid, OK and had the opportunity to view the storm from 50 miles away as the sun was setting. Overall, a great chase day.
