    Hi All, well we had another chase today although things did not go to plan with Mother Nature. We initially headed south west from Brownwood (Tx) and knew initiation would be early and rapid. We got to Brady at about 145pm and noticed a Cell that had got to 50,000 feet inside 20 minutes, so off we went, we intercepted it along Highway 283 just North of Junction (TX) and tracked it South and Eastwards.

    post-24-1146978026.jpg - Ran into Silver Lining Tours, Roger Hill with the Tripod

    post-24-1146978075_thumb.jpg - Time to Move South & East again as Hail Core Coming

    At this point for some reason the storm became Linear and crapped out so we core punched through it to the east and what we saw on the other side put the Chase into top gear once again.

    post-24-1146978344.jpg post-24-1146978373.jpg - Going to leave these alone and head North!

    So not great today, we had the potential but certain things just were not happening.

    Great photos Paul, Noticed the possible tornados in some of the pics. Keep chasing them storms and you will surely find the storms you need.

    Very intresting to see the heavy hail, and hail roar is certainly a cool thing to here I'd guess (I'm lucky in that I heard a hail roar during the July 2004 MCS that gave golfball hail to my area.)

    The more I look at some of these pics the more I realise that looking at the structure of these Supercells is more exciting than an actual tornado if this makes any sense :o .

    Certainly is wetting my appetite for our own storms and cannot wait until im out taking pics of the cloud formations.

    Thanks for posting these pics Paul. :)
