Two active days of difficult chasing…netted on mini-supercell north of Salina (and north of the big, nearly stationary cell near salina that produced a tornado we couldn’t reach). The bottom photo shows this storm. The top photo shows a tornado-warned segment of an intense line of storms in the TX Panhandle and westernmost OK area. It is interesting in that the structure of the storm showed more of a wall cloud-like structure in the distance, not unlike many HP storms we have seen. Storms lined out today, minimizing the tornado threat but ramping up widespread wind damage potential. Managed to catch an awesome shelf cloud with a bowing line of storms in the TX Panhandle and western OK.
