Nada but some nice storms. And a 450 mile drive to Colorado awaited us after 7PM.

Low Level flow turns more southerly. Shear Profiles become straight. This favors splitting supercells with large hail the chief threat.

SPC Considers a Severe Thunderstorm Watch and issues it.

Here is a splitting storm near Lubbock, viewed looking west. Note the distant updraft base (looks like a separate wall cloud, but isn't) of the right mover. The left mover had a brief and weak landspout on it. (Barely visible in this picture)

Same set of storms.

Now we are northwest of the right (south) mover. Note the rain "foot" off to our east.

View back towards the northeast of main updraft, which was dying a ghastly death.
