May 18th
Harper, Sumner and Sedgwick Counties
of Kansas
Initiation near Anthony, KS
Small but persistent wall cloud entering
the west side of Wichita.
Killing time in Oklahoma with Joel Lampe,
Theresa Caspers, and Miah Johnson.
A stormy night in Kansas.
Storm begins to thicken.  Doesn't look like
much on the WXWorks though.
Base with updraft area and rising scud
at the zoo in Wichita, KS.
Action area continues to exhibit strong
rising motion but too far to see if rotating.
Horrible contrast.  Still shows strong
rising motion as it sucks scud in.
Continues to show motion as it enters
the city of Wichita, KS.
Low base with evident vault area
passes just to the west.
2005 Chase Home
Sun setting under the base on the
outskirts of Wichita, KS.
Starts to look better with a well defined base
and small hail starting to fall.  Weak shear.
One last look at the base before we
dump the storm due to the metro area.
