Possible Tornado Outbreak 04/17-18/2013

I'm baaaaack!!!

Did'ja miss me? Yeah, didn't think so...

Well? after a four month sabbatical I'm ready to get back to doing what I do best:

Driving long distances, chasing marginal conditions, and completely over thinking the day's forecast to where my head hurts before I even leave the driveway. Fortunately, I invested in a couple of more software tools to increase my daily overload of data even further.

Perhaps this season, conditions will actually germinate to where I can actually make use of these tools and correctly place myself in an area of storm viewing with two or three hundred of my fellow chasers and maybe record the incident as proof that the bucks I've spent to this point wasn't completely in vain...

Sounds like a great hobby eh?

Here's the setup right now:

Wednesday sees Central Oklahoma and SE Kansas as the focal point for a possible outbreak of tornadoes. Many of the ingredients line up according to models but, some speculation still exists as to timing and location of initiation.

Thursday moves things to the east somewhat and some forecasters feel this may be the more severe of the next two days assisted by a strengthening surface low over MO drawing warm gulf moisture across a eastward moving cold front.

In either case, both days will require close monitoring of the weather and immediate action taken if conditions warrant. make sure you have a fresh set of batteries for your NOAA all hazards radio and test it prior to the onset of severe weather and please heed all warnings applicable to your area.
