Childress, TX to Altus, OK
This day was made up of too many storms to chase. I didn't exactly know which one to pick. Unfortunately, I picked the one closest to Childress, TX. The storm farther south near Paducah produced tornadoes. The storm I was on had some nice rotation and a well pronounced wall cloud. There was one needle funnel that appeared for about 2 minutes before the RFD and outflow cut it off. After that I headed up to Altus to watch that outflow-dominated storm roll through there. Below are some pictures of the event.
Nice wallcloud with rotation.
Rotation picks up a little speed.
RFD appears and the show is over.
Nice mammatus clouds.
