April 22nd was a day that had high hopes. A very deep trough moving in the southwestern states created strong southwest flow aloft with good diffluence. A dryline set up over the central Texas panhandle. By late afternoon storms exploded along the dryline just south of Clarendon, Texas and moved north. As they approached the interstate 40 corridor, they produced several tornadoes. I broke the 2010 season in with a bang, catching 5 tornadoes from two supercells.
