June 12th, 2005 Kent County, Texas Tornadofest

June 12 had the look and feel of a decent tornadic set up in the eastern Texas panhandle. A strong dryline, coupled with an old outflow boundary from overnight convection, high dewpoints and instability would set the stage for tornadic supercells this day. We blasted from Denver all the way to east of Lubbock to catch this monster. As we arrived a strong supercell became anchored in Kent county enhancing its shear, which would help it produce numerous tornadoes. This storm did not move much at all during its life cycle.
