From the NWS Wichita Website:
The first picture was taken up near Newton. Not real spectacular, a bit of a blob. Maybe a hint of a shelf forming in the lower right hand corner. I relied on radar data and the storm looked to gain a nice bow echo, so I headed back to the Valley Center area (north of Wichita).
|Taken from Galaxy S5, a small fire is seen right of center. This was non-storm related.|
The shelf cloud had developed well and was approaching quickly. I found an open area facing north and west, (the road goes east and west).
Early reports had baseball sized hail out near Kingman and 80 mph winds.
