Oklahoma storm 30th May 2006
« on: 01 June 2006, 04:13:06 PM »
Have watched a couple of spectacular storms in NW Oklahoma last couple of days.   This supercell dropped an amazing amount of CG lightning. Photo taken near Sayre, W Oklahoma.  ;D

Hi Steven,

Absolutely awesome picture! Great staccato. Lts of those form this particular storm.

We were just around the corner and also photographed and filmed that barrage! Wow! When I get a chance I will try posting some images.

We are now in Colorado.

Regards,

Jimmy Deguara

We targetted the region in SE Colorado and extreme western Oklahoma Panhandle. But we got side tracked by developing storms that were I thought would moveg into some moisture that mixed out in the central Texas Panhandle. The outflow boundary produced strong gusts and also spun up a probable landspout near Spearman. Finally having enough, we raced towards the Oklahoma supercell with an eye on any interaction of the outflow boundary on the cells near Pampa.

We finally made it through east of Wheeler and south with and ahead of the Roberts County cell. We decided in the end to play this cell and what a barrage of lightning it let go south of Sayre. This coincided with a reorganisation of the meso or a new meso. I don't believe the outflow was always interferring with the updraft given the alignment of the cell and its motion. The late evening lightning was near Mangum as indicated by Hank above. Incredible!
