CHASE SUMMARY

I’d been tracking a supercell for over an hour prior to this video. The storm exhibited strong low-level rotation at times. As it approached and passed over Interstate 35 it decided to really ramp up in the hail department. I thought I had time to beat the hail core while traveling south on Highway 86 from Perry (a north/south highway a few miles east of I-35). Turns out the storm had different plans…
