Saved by the Bell

Targeted the Clinton, OK area like most and got a pretty decent sunburn. Drifted north closer to the warm front as many convective towers failed to sustain any sort of deep convection. Right as we were about to call of the chase, a couple back to back strengthening radar scans from the storm SW of Woodward caught my attention. As we closed in, the storm became tornado warned. While we were not able to witness any sort of low-level rotation, we were treated to some great structure right before sundown. A saving grace for a disappointing day...

Nice ending to an otherwise disappointing day
