5/14/2013 Warmin' Up the Gear

Tuesday provided the first chaseable weather for College of Dupage's Storm Chasing Trip 2.  We awoke to some map analysis in Abilene, TX and decided it would be best to slowly drift southwestward toward Ozona, TX. We intercepted a sub-severe storm north of Rankin, TX, producing penny size hail and heavy rainfall.  We stayed ahead of the storms as they grew upscale and were treated with nice shelf features.  We were whitnessed a lengthy gustnado near Rankin (I'm trying to find students with decent pictures).

Aah...storms. I knew they used to be there. Pretty storms in a great area to be.
