June 19, 2020 Seeding Mission:

 

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 2020

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.  Flare Total:  12 BIP

July 19, 2020 Seeding Mission:

 

Seeding operations were done over three convective cores over Potter County using a total of 20 BIP flares between 7:11 pm and 7:26 pm.  The seeded units had excellent responds to the seeding and merged in one large echo which was part of a larger system that impacted the region.

July 20, 2020 Seeding Mission:

 

Seeding operations over 4 convective units with 36 BIP flares (Donley: 22; Wheeler: 14) with excellent results.

July 21, 2020 Seeding Mission:

 

Seeding operations over two convective units with 12 BIP flares (Carson:4; Donley:4)

Maintenance seeding was limited due to very strong winds

July 23, 2020 Seeding Mission:

 

Seeding operations over 4 convective units on the first mission over Armstrong, Carson, Gray and Potter Counties.  A total of 21 BIP flares were used with excellent results (Armstrong: 6 BIP, Carson: 3 BIP, Gray: 6 BIP, Potter: 6 BIP).  Aircraft: 59P (Comanche)

A second mission using aircraft 78G (Aztec) was deployed over Potter County where a large storm (# 707) was seeded using 27 flares and with excellent reaction.

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 2020

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 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).

August 29, 2020 Seeding Mission:

 

A short operational flight was launched to seed three convective cores were over Potter County between 7:04 pm and 7: 13 BIP; 20 BIP flares were used with excellent reactions.  At the end the seeded cores were ingested by a large storm and the whole target area was impacted by rain.
