Back in Tulsa. Justin Teague, Greg McLaughlin, Joseph Tyree, Keith Minor, Steve Bluford and I, along with several new friends in our caravan, witnessed a large, possibly significant, wedge tornado northwest of Paducah, Texas at around 7:30PM CDT on Thursday afternoon. The tornado took on sizes and shapes reminiscent of Greensburg as it briefly revealed itself through heavy rain.

This supercell was a monster, with some of the strongest large-scale inflow cloud motion that I've seen.

I will likely be heading north from Tulsa in the morning for day 2 of this system, which should take me back home toward St. Louis at the end of the day.

Great catch Dan!!

Great catch. My pics of this are on Flickr. You can see them by going there and typing in wd5dhk which is my ham call sign.
