5.18.2010 Supercell intercept in the west Texas panhandle.

A single supercell thunderstorm developed in far western Texas panhandle and tracked east toward Oklahoma.

A tornado developed to the north and west of the armada, and was briefly visible by several VORTEX2 members before becoming wrapped in rain.  Mobile mesonets collected some data, but the rotation was too far away from a decent road network to be sampled.

VORTEX2 teams again ran into extremely large hail as the storm tracked along the only main east-west road in the area.
