Chase Recap:

Headed out with Lindsey and Alec on this marginal day around Wichita Falls. Ended up heading to Lawton first and hanging around before deciding to drop south of the Red River into Texas.

Got onto the first storm in time to watch it decay, but bounced back to the second storm east of Burkburnett, TX. It looked like the storm would produce a tornado a couple times, but never really did produce.

Some nice structure was to be had before the storms died shortly after dusk. I headed back to Norman for a quick nap before heading up to Minnesota for the next day.
