Chase Log

May 26, 2014 – Central Texas Tornadic Supercell

May 26th featured a dryline in the west Texas area, with pretty decent shear, moisture and instability. Storms formed early afternoon east of Lubbock and tracked southeast during the late afternoon. We ended up watching strong supercell that pushed all the way through San Angelo late in the day, producing huge hail and at least 2 tornadoes we could confirm. The structure on the storm was quite nice and as it cycled several times, it morphed into a massive hp supercell.  There were a LOT of chasers out on this late May day as expected, and everyone was leapfrogging each other trying to move with the storm. It was quite comical to say the least! All in all though, it was a very exciting chase day and the guests had a fantastic time with this beast of a storm!
