Scott Blair and I targeted Gainesville, TX and watched a lightning show in the early morning hours while waiting for an early morning supercell outbreak.1 After the supercell threat failed to materialize, we pushed eastward towards Louisiana. Storms finally began blowing up during the afternoon hours, and we saw storms off to our NE that were producing numerous and strange looking mammatus near Shreveport, LA.2 After hearing a tornado warning issued for Harrison Co. in Texas, we moved to intercept a rain wrapped mesocyclone near Marshall, TX.3 Needless to say, a very long chase day.
