Well, it was good to finally get out of the house to chase for the first time since March 8th. I left Amarillo around 2 and fiddled around with convection around Tulia for a while but didn't really see much except for rain and a lot of CG's. Headed east out of Tulia and got onto some better storms that were going up north of Silverton. I initially headed south out of Turkey for a few minutes, but decided to get on the stronger storms between Turkey and Brice. I got about 6 miles south of Brice on Hwy. 70 and thought I might get into some pretty good sized hail since the VIL was off the chart. I think the VIL at times approached 70-80, but only small and very sporadic hail ever occurred in the area I was located. I was very surprised to say the least as I was getting ready for a hail barrage!
It was a nice drive on the way back to Amarillo as I got some nice pics of the sunset and some mammatus from the decaying anvils. All in all, a nice chase with hopes of many more to come!
