Chase Acct: May 22 (Northwest OK/Southwest KS)

Filed under: Chase Accounts,Storm Chasing — Mike U @ 9:47 am

This is a brief initial account.  Will write a more detailed account on ths post later.  I left work at 3pm and decided to chase the dryline instead of the warm front because a) storm motion would be a bit slower and b) I didn’t want to be a part of the zoo of chasers that were targetting the I-70 corridor.  I did not see a tornado yesterday, but I’m not really disappointed with the chase.  I observed a very nice but small supercell from southwest of May to Buffalo, OK to near Coldwater, KS.  I observed large hail at to different locations 1) 1.25" diameter hail about 4 miles ENE of Buffalo and 2) up to 2.5" [tennis ball size] hail 8 miles east of Coldwater.  The storm took on excellent rotation as it crossed the OK-KS border in approach toward the Coldwater area, but the overall size of the storm and dewpoints only in the 62-63F range really prevented a significant chance at a tornado.  Nevertheless, the storm cycled through numerous classic RFD occlusions, etc.  It was very photogenic toward the mid-evening hours.
