At least this chase was short. A cluster of storms formed near the Kansas/Oklahoma border between 2 and 3 pm. It’s been a common theme this season, but we arrived finding updrafts small and ill-defined. Lightning was limited, but we stayed with persistent storms between Garber and Marshall.
Things got a bit interesting between 6:30 and 7 pm when a supercell storm managed to get organized over northeast Kingfisher County. This storm actually looked to be on the way to having tornado potential before a negative impact from another theme of the season. Storms southwest of OKC sent off a strong left mover that tracked across western Oklahoma City and eventually merged with our storm over northern Logan County. The merger wasn’t a good one and our storm went rapidly downhill. We were left with another roadside visit with friends near Mulhall, while we hoped for a lightning strike or two that rarely came. Once again, at least this chase was short.
