SW OK Supercell (Viewed from 3 W of Blanchard)

April 3, 2003

A cell popped up late in the afternoon along the dryline (along with a few other cells) just north of Altus, OK. I watched it for a considerable time on radar and finally bit, deciding to go out and film the sunset underneath the storm. This is the only storm that survived for any considerable time today. I stopped about 3 miles west of Blanchard and took a few stills and video of the sunset. I didn't feel like getting right up underneath the base after that point, because the view was really beautiful.

Sunset with the Caddo County storm.

Zoomed in on fresh updraft elements.

Lightning at dusk.
