Episode Narrative Supercell thunderstorms developed over the southern Texas panhandle and moved into southwest Oklahoma, with large hail and four tornadoes reported by early evening. The first thunderstorms moved into western portions of north Texas and quickly strengthened to severe levels. large hail was reported as they moved northeast into southwest Oklahoma. As the storms moved into Greer county, the supercells developed strong low level rotation due to the high amounts of low-level wind shear. Four tornadoes developed over Greer and far southeast Beckham counties, but remained over open land and caused no known damage. Other storms developed during the evening hours, but the threat had transitioned to heavy rainfall, large hail, and damaging winds.
