Stormchase USA 2017 (Index)

10.05.2017: Amarillo, TX - Childress, TX - Altus, OK - Vernon, TX - (424 Miles)


English summary: Somewhat higher expectations today did not verify. Storms along the Red River remain low-end tornadic (a gustnado has a completely different genesis, and cannot really be counted as a tornado, neither does it last long or look nice). Chaser traffic hinders our mobility under the fast moving storms, especially near bridges. Thanks to increased dryline interaction towards the evening, a storm futher south gets at least more visible and beautiful (see time lapse segments further below)
