Hotel location:  Amarillo, TX

Intercept location: Dumas, TX

VORTEX2 intercepted a long-lived supercell in the northern Texas panhandle that developed along a dryline.  The storm produced a number of weak tornadoes.  Mobile mesonets reported good data collection within dual-Doppler coverage, and were able to sample the storm’s outflow and inflow.  The TTU Ka-Band radar had good data collection of the rear-flank downdraft while overlapped with Sticknets.
