May 30th

A long drive from Hays today but we got onto a good looking storm near Guthrie, although it didn't take long to go outflow dominant, likely due to the light surface winds. Now in a motel in NW Oklahoma City.

We knew that it was a long drive to get into the risk area, and that points south of Oklahoma City would likely have the higher storm chances. Given the traffic issues around the devastated Moore area we didn't want to pass south through the metro area.

Friday looks like being another volatile weather day for central Oklahoma, unfortunately. Once again the Oklahoma City area is in a risk area for severe thunderstorms including tornadoes, some of which could be strong, especially into the evening hours.

Here is the Guthrie storm displaying a brief, disorganised wall cloud, before the outflow undercut it and it turned into a shelf.
