Pop's Shelf Cloud

Pop's Shelf Cloud

After a frustrating pursuit east of Kingfisher, OK, in which we were caught in chaser traffic moving the same speed as the storm, precluding us from getting ahead of it to collect scientific data, we, um, intercepted a weak tornado south of Cimarron City. Afterward, we continued to follow the storm southeast to near Arcadia and the Route 66 landmark Pop's. As seen by this shelf cloud, the storm had gone outflow dominant and the mission was called off. Taken May 19, 2010.
