Chase: Sunday, May 25, 2014

Our day started out in Odessa, Texas. We had a weather briefing at 10 am and came to the conclusion to move southwest to Fort Stockton. We knew today's conditions weren't ideal but we were still hopeful to get some storms to watch. After lunch, we moved to Sanderson, Texas and waited for some storms to fire up. Unfortunately the storms that started to develop died out quickly today; the best storm of the day was just across the United States-Mexico border to our southeast. Despite the fact that we didn't see much in the ways of weather, we did get to drink in the beautiful scenery of southwest Texas. We returned to Fort Stockton and decided to settle in for the night. We have also decided that we are going to take the next 2 days off from chasing to drive across country to catch a system that is developing in the northern part of the United States. This system comes at a good time because it will lead us back towards home in Whitewater next Sunday.
