5/22/2016 Memphis, TX Supercell

5/22 was our last day out with College of DuPage Trip 2.  With high hopes for a good end to the trip, we set our sights on the eastern TX panhandle for supercell storms.  Our target storm near Memphis, TX had great rotation during its classic phase, but then morphed into a dangerous high-precipitation supercell with an embedded tornado.  Due to safety reasons, we pulled back further to the east to remain out of the dangerous areas of the supercell.  Not what we were hoping for (especially because a different storm to the north produced a much greater visibility tornado), but we did our best. 

MISC:  Overnighted in Moore, OK.
