Mini chase with the boys.....

Monday 4/13/09 was a weird weather day. A gravity wave/wake low moved through Alabama during the overnight hours on Sunday night/Monday morning, blowing down countless thousands of trees. In Central Alabama, Alabama Power indicated that 150,000 customers were without power. I hope to post more about that event soon. Then a "freak" tornado warning was issued during the after noon hours (see previous post), and finally another batch of storms moved through during the evening.

Before sunset, I took the boys on a "mini-chase" of one of those storms that was marginally severe and relatively close to home. I was hoping we would get to see a little hail, but it fell apart as it approached. My son David uploaded the following video. I may later post some radar captures he made showing how the storm literally fell apart as it approached.
