Gorgeous supercell in the Texas Panhandle!
A supercell from the backside at sunset south and west of Dalhart, Texas this past Spring. This storm formed off of the high terrain in New Mexico and marched very slowly south and east on its path. This cell exhibited some majestic structure during its life, and dropped some big hail.
Chasing the High Plains the last few seasons has been more of a focus for us and the results have been well worth the effort. Chasing out in the open country of New Mexico, Colorado, Texas, and Kansas requires some patience and more flexibility on storm positioning.
This is because roads are a bit more sparse out west, with 30-40 mile breaks in meaningful roads not that abnormal. But when it all lines up, that open country makes storms look amazing.
