Elmwood, Oklahoma (Beaver County)
June 8, 1995 (UTC)

Work continues on this interesting null event. A strong supercell persisted for many hours and moved from the northeast Texas Panhandle into the Oklahoma Panhandle. NCAR ELDORA is available from 1950-2130 UTC. DOW data collection started shortly after ELDORA data commenced. No P-3 data is available until later in the day owing to transmitter problems.

The original presentation was made at the 2nd VORTEX Workshop held December 2-3, 1997. An updated version was presented at the 19th Conference on Severe Local Storms (September 14-18, 1998).
