La Crosse, KS tornadoes from 5/25: …and a time-lapse of the supercell that spawned the nighttime tornadoes: Thunderstorm time-lapse in May, OK from 6/3: And here’s a re-post of the Piedmont, OK tornado from 5/29 (just to have all of the videos on one post):
I have started to publish pictures and chase logs from my chasecation, and they can be found in the new Photo Gallery page: http://madusweather.com/photo-gallery/ Right now I only have 5/24 and 5/26 finished… the awesome day of 5/25 will take awhile to complete.

We are currently driving northwest towards Dalhart, TX to get some supercell structure shots today. Tornadoes aren’t out of the question, but it looks like today will be better to sit back from the storm a ways and enjoy the cloud formations. With land this flat, even if we are 15 miles away from the […]
