April 26th, 2008 Texas High Based Supercell

April 26th featured a diving shortwave from the northern Rockies, and meager moisture return behind a departing storm in the eastern US. Shear was respectable, but with limited moisture, we new there wouldn’t be much of a tornado threat. However, the thought of high based supercells producing hail and good lighting was enough to get us east of Lubbock, Texas. A nicely structured storm formed and tracked southeast for several hours, producing hail to 2″ in diameter, decent structure and tons of awesome lightning.
