The Texas Panhandle in June: A Gorgeous Supercell Moving Near Amarillo (June 8, 2017)

0 423

There are just so many phrases that seem to go together in storm chasing — one of my favorite combinations is the Texas Panhandle and June.

Typically when June comes around, the jet stream is just strong enough to provide enough spin for supercells to form — but its just strong enough, meaning the jet stream isn’t fast enough to push storms along very fast.

This results in beautiful storms crawling over the open country with ample photography opportunities. Myself and Brett Wright enjoyed one such opportunity this past June in the Texas Panhandle with a supercell that drifted south from Fritch to south of Amarillo.
