Chase Recap:

An early season 10% hatched day that fell on a weekend, so of course I decided the best idea would be to chase. Adam and I headed out towards an initial target south of Wichita Falls.

Morning Hand Analysis – April 2, 2023 15z

As can be seen on my hand analysis, the moisture didn’t get as far north as anticipated. We ended up south of I-20 near Dublin, TX on a supercell. Storm motions were pretty fast, and we managed to get over taken by the hail core.

After ending up in the core, I decided to call the chase. I believe the storm became tornado warned later on, but did not produce. I was back in Fort Worth before sunset and home shortly after sunset.
