June 2020

 

On June 19th, seeding operations were done over Southern Armstrong County (6 BIP flares) and Donley County (4 BIP flares) on two convective clouds between 5:36 pm and 5:47 pm (Total: 10 BIP flares).

 A large system ingested the two seeded clouds. Counties benefited: Armstrong and Donley

July 2, 2020 Seeding Mission:

On July 2nd, seeding operations were done over Potter County on five convective echoes between 3:23 pm and 3:59 pm (23 BIP flares); counties benefited: Potter, Carson, Armstrong, Gray and Donley.

 

July 4, 2020 Seeding Mission:

Seeding operations were conducted over Carson (12 BIP), Donley (10 BIP) and Armstrong (4 BIP) Counties between 3:20 pm and 4:15 pm on five convective cores located over Carson, Donley and Armstrong Counties.  Seeding operations favored the aforementioned counties and also Gray County.

 

July 6, 2020 Seeding Mission:

Seeding operations were done on four small convection cores over Donley County between 4:13 p.m. and 9:36 p.m. with very good results. 

 

July 24, 2020 Seeding Mission:

A first mission using aircraft 59P (Comanche) was deployed on 6 convective units over Armstrong and Carson Counties with excellent results. A total of 24 BIP flares were used (Armstrong: 16 BIP, Carson: 8 BIP)

A second mission with the same aircraft seeded 4 convective units over Potter, Carson and Gray Counties using 22 BIP and 1 Hygroscopic flares with excellent responses (Potter: 12 BIP, Carson: 2 BIP, Gray: 8 BIP and 1 Hygroscopic).

 

July 27, 2020 Seeding Mission:

Seeding operations on two convective units over Armstrong and Donley Counties were made using a total of 20 BIP flares and with excellent reactions (Armstrong: 4 BIP, Donley: 16 BIP)

 

July 28, 2020 Seeding Mission:

Seeding operations were made over two convective units over Gray County using 6 BIP flares and 1 Hygroscopic flare.  The operation was interrupted due to problems with the radio communication.

 

August 2, 2020 Seeding Mission:

One mission using 78G (Aztec) was deployed over three convective cores over Gray and Carson County will excellent responses.  A total of 20 BIP flares and 1 hygroscopic flare were used (Gray:12 BIP, 1 Hygroscopic; Carson: 8 BIP).  The seeded storms drifted into Donley County about 4:30 pm and merged; later they went away into Hall County.

 

August 6, 2020 Seeding Mission:

Two convective cores were seeding in the afternoon over Carson and Potter Counties with excellent responses.  A total of 19 BIP flares were used (Carson: 12 BIP, Potter: 7 BIP).
