Chase Log: April 16, 2016 – Texas Panhandle

29 Apr

I started this day off in the general vicinity of the target area in Amarillo, so I did not have too far to travel to get to storms as they fired early in the afternoon. I had originally expected this to be the better of the two days. I left Amarillo around 1pm and headed east on 287, where I caught the first storm near Washburn. It had some pretty good structure and a wall cloud on it already!


There wasn’t really any rotation, however. I followed this storm north for a ways, then it started to weaken, so I dropped south onto some other storms.

I really don’t have a lot to say about the rest of the chase. I followed these storms for a while, got into some small hail, but at the end of the day none of these storms were close to producing any tornadoes. I really think we needed these storms to hold off until peak daytime heating.
