Tornado Warning Pampa Texas! May 15, 2009

Tornado Warning!  1/2 Mile Wide Pampa TX, May 15 2009.
Shot by Ron using Canon 20D and 10/22mm ultra-wide angle lens. 
You can see the 70mph wind streaks howling on the ground near the car!
Lightning from this storm blew out 5 windows in our tour vans!
 
I have spent over 10,000hrs and 20 years reading and researching mesoscale supercellular thermodynamics. 
I then overlay Upper charts/flow characteristics, systematic climatology along with computer model graphs and weather charts.
 
5 years alone have been spent researching dryline storms and RFD/FFD surface convergence interaction zones.  Micro-Scale Thermodynamic Boundary Forcing that leads to possible tornadic thunderstorms and tornadogenesis.  It is this knowledge and understanding that enables me to forecast and intercept tornadoes.
