May 13th, 2005 Northwest Texas Supercell

This was a tough day for me. It looked like a potential for a tornado outbreak near the Red River that ended up never materializing. Surface moisture was shallow and mixing lowered dewpoints and allowed storms to be high based and outflow dominant quickly. There was a tornado on the storm we were on, but we never had great visibility of it. This was a MONSTER spiraling high precipitation supercell that was the most electrified storm this year so far. We intercepted it north of Paducah, TX and stayed with it all the way to Throckmorton.
