Chase Recap:

This was a complex forecast and in the end, I should have stayed home. As it would turn out, a billion dollar hailstorm would hit Norman including significant damage to my home.

Morning surface map placed a charging cold front along the red river and pushing south. I stupidly drove south towards I-20 in hopes something would produce. Not a good day. Rule of 20, never chase south of I-20. I have not seen much of anything significant south of I-20 except perhaps the Big Springs, TX Tornadoes in 2016.
