Chase #7 Evaluation

See the website for a full chase log and photos.

Long story short, intercepted HP supercell near the Oklahoma City State Capitol and successfully streamed hail footage to KSBI (dime- to quarter-size hail falling).  I even got on air (speaking about the hail) for the first time.

We later got on an LP supercell southeast of El Reno (we were sitting just a few miles east of Newcastle and west of north Norman / south Moore).  This beauty had a high base and a stacked plate appearance as it slowly rotated.  Eventually the cloud base eroded and we headed back to Norman.

Not bad for a 3-hour, 80-mile chase: HP supercell with hail and lightning, and LP supercell with amazing structure!
