Area Chased: S OK / W TX
Discussion: I left early that morning to head down to Denton, TX to pick up my chase partner Jeff Lawson. One of the reasons I left as early as I did was to get down to the Ardmore, OK area to observe some severe storms already occurring. There were some intense individual cells and one on going supercell in a cluster. When I reached a storm that was severe for a while it had just gone east of I-35 leaving a swatch of small hail several inches deep on the side of the road. So naturally I got out and took stills. Nothing materialized later that day.
Images of the hail off I-35 just north of the Texas border. As you can see its innocent hail, but large quantities like this can be hazardous to drive on, especially on a major highway.
