Quite literally an incredible chase day today. Our Position in Seminole had the very first severe cell of the day that popped overhead. Watched this cell with about 10 chase cars in a car park before it was apparant that a developing Supercell near Coalgate would be our play, only problem was just one road south and by the time we got to Coalgate we had to take cover from large hail, took refuge under a carport and then the Tornado Sirens were wailing for about 30 minutes, again have incredible video which i will post when i get a chance of this, a clearing to our south and looking above a church rapid rotation at about 6pm, SPC Has a report of a Tornado at that time as well, we blasted south to Atica and core punched the cell which had Mesos on the road in front of us, again took refuge at about 7pm under a Carport and then had amazing circulation and what looked like a massive white funnel cross the road in front of us, again SPC Have this reported as a Touchdown, today has been at times plain stupid of us to core punch, in the Bears Cage many times with ear splitting thunder and Tornados too close for comfort, but being within the circulation looking out and not looking in meant pictures hard to come by, currently at Durrant with a Supercell to our South doing damage to houses as it tracks east. Tomorrow looks like a very big day and we are tracking 350 miles to our east to play with Alabama.

Pictures to Follow but very poor due to Temps at 85f and Dewpoints near 79f, just think of getting off a Aeroplane in Spain in August but 3 times worse, soo uncomfortable today.

Yes Andy, 2 Tornadoes, and about 5 Funnel Clouds with one Landspout, today could obliterate this though :D
