SW Texas - Bust!


Perhaps the biggest bust I've ever chased - started the day in Amarillo (TX) and drove for nearly 4 hours southwards towards Midland (TX), placing us in the SPC's 'Enhanced' risk area for severe thunderstorms. A few storms had developed over the mountains out west, so we headed towards them, just north of Pecos (TX), but as we approached it was clear they were collapsing. In fact, an hour later there were no storms left, resulting in the SPC cancelling their Severe Thunderstorm Watch! Meanwhile back near Amarillo there were a succession of thunderstorms, in a messy fashion.
