March 31, 2008 Eastern Oklahoma Storms
I started out early around 8am and headed for Sallisaw, OK. I stayed in Sallisaw untill 11am as I gave up on any morning storms developing and moving into Western Arkansas. I headed towards some severe storms NW of Checotah, OK and by around noon I got to them. It was all pretty linear but there were a few attempts to get better organized on the southwestern edge. I tried to get some lightning but missed everything. I did see a bunch of birds riding some inflow.
I stayed on that storm until about 2pm when I started back southeast on Hwy 64 to get back into the clean air that was SE. At Haskell, OK I stopped to look North as grlevel was showing a strongs TVS. There was only linear crap but right before I continued south I noticed to my east along the leading edge of the outflow some rotation. It wasn't real rotation but a tight area where outflow that was bulging east was up against the prevaling wind directon (SW) and some inflow into the storm that was now to the NNE. Here is video:
