20th Eldorado, OK Tornado
OK Tornadic Supercell
Juston Drake and Simon Brewer
documented supercell thunderstorm over Northwest Texas and Southwest Oklahoma.
We intercepted a high-based outflow-dominant supercell east of Memphis,
TX. It produced high winds, gustnadoes, and quarter-sized hail, but new
updrafts were continuously feeding into the storm giving it problems. South
of Hollis, OK along the Red River the storm reorganized and became a monster
HP supercell. We were able to get back in front of the updraft west of Eldorado
and were blown away by the impressive structure. There was a rapidly rotating
wall cloud, a ground-scraping tail cloud, beaver's tail, and several mid-level
inflow bands. The supercell was taking advantage of a narrow corridor of
instability against an outflow boundary. We witnessed one brief tornado
before rain-bands wrapped around the circulation hiding it from our view.
