April 25, 2011 Hillsboro, TX Tornadic Supercell

April 25th took me to Texas. Early day indications looked like northeast Texas would be a sweet spot. We headed early to Paris only to be disappointed by early afternoon convection that was slightly elevated. Meanwhile a tornadic supercell developed southwest of Ft Worth and produced at least 2-3 tornadoes before we could recover and make the 130 mile trek. We did catch up to it near Itasca, TX and encountered a pretty structured supercell that produced two brief tornadoes between Itasca and Hillsboro.  Nothing worse than being 130 miles from a nice supercell and hearing about the tornadoes that occurred before you have a chance to reach it!
