Played tag today with several supercells across the Eastern Texas Panhandle into western Oklahoma.  The supercells were reported to have hail up to the size of softballs as we worked our way in and around them.  We observed amazing structure and quarter size hail.  Although the storms maintained rotating wall clouds, the circulations failed to sustain any tornadoes.
