Looks like a bust

Despite pretty good moisture and instability, lift was not sufficient to break the cap today. This seemed to be down to an area of cirrus which overspread from the west during the afternoon. We spent several hours in Watonga, Oklahoma, chatting to other chasers, who were on Cloud 9 Tours (the Rees brothers, etc) and Charles Edwards, who runs the tours.

By early evening it became apparent that storms were not going to develop so we headed off. As the best chance tomorrow currently looks to be in Kansas we've decided to head to Blackwell, Oklahoma for the night. We're currently passing through Enid, Oklahoma.
