May 17, 2012 - Southwest Kansas

Back to albums

This was our only day out for our WDT chase. Conditions were just not conducive for storms, but we went out anyway for a marginal risk. Initial target was the north Texas Panhandle so we drove west from Oklahoma City to lunch in Pampa at The Yellow Rose steakhouse. After lunch a check of conditions let us know we needed to go north for any storms. We re-targeted to Boise City, Oklahoma, but on the way a storm developed a little farther north in Kansas, so we made our way there instead. The storm was mainly a rain and lightning producer, but we did see multiple long-lived gustnadoes and even drove into one.
