    DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK

    NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK

    1255 AM CDT FRI MAY 23 2008

    VALID 231200Z - 241200Z

    ...THERE IS A MDT RISK OF SVR TSTMS PORTIONS EXTREME SERN

    WY...EXTREME NERN CO...SRN NEB PANHANDLE...SWRN AND EXTREME

    S-CENTRAL NEB...W-CENTRAL/NERN KS...

    ...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS ELSEWHERE FROM ERN WY TO

    W-CENTRAL OK AND SERN NEB...

    ANOTHER REGIONALIZED OUTBREAK OF SVR TSTMS...INCLUDING SUPERCELLS

    WITH TORNADOES AND LARGE/DAMAGING HAIL...IS FCST ACROSS PORTIONS

    CENTRAL HIGH PLAINS TODAY.

    ...SYNOPSIS...

    PRIMARY UPPER AIR FEATURE FOR THIS FCST WILL CONTINUE TO BE LARGE

    CYCLONIC GYRE COVERING MOST OF WRN CONUS. UPPER LEVEL MERIDIONAL

    GRADIENT WINDS ARE FCST TO BE STRONGER TODAY THAN YESTERDAY ACROSS

    MUCH OF THIS REGION...E.G. 70-80 KT AT 250 MB AS COMPARED TO 40-50

    KT ANALYZED ON 23/00Z CHART AT THAT LEVEL...AS SPEED MAX PIVOTS

    AROUND PERIPHERAL ERN SEMICIRCLE OF CYCLONE.

    AT SFC...MODELS DIFFER SOMEWHAT ON POSITION OF SFC LOW ACROSS NERN

    CO/SERN WY AREA...NAM BEING FARTHEST S AND OUTLIER WITH RESPECT TO

    CONSENSUS OF SPECTRAL...MOST SREF MEMBERS AND PRIOR ECMWF RUN.

    QUASISTATIONARY AND PRONOUNCED SFC BAROCLINIC ZONE WILL EXTEND ESEWD

    FROM LOW ACROSS SERN NEB...N-CENTRAL AND E-CENTRAL KS. THIS FRONT

    SHOULD MOVE LITTLE EXCEPT FOR LOCALIZED MODULATIONS RESULTING FROM

    CONVECTIVE OUTFLOWS. DRYLINE SHOULD INTERSECT FRONT OVER NWRN KS

    AND EXTEND SWD ACROSS ERN PORTIONS TX/OK PANHANDLES...MIXING

    SLIGHTLY EWD DURING LATE MORNING THROUGH MID AFTERNOON AND

    RETREATING SOMEWHAT WWD LATE AFTERNOON INTO OVERNIGHT HOURS.

    ...SERN WY TO NERN CO AND SWRN NEB...

    SCATTERED-NUMEROUS TSTMS SHOULD DEVELOP....INITIALLY INVOF FRONTAL

    ZONE OVER CYS RIDGE REGION...SRN PANHANDLE OF NEB...NERN CO AND SWRN

    NEB...THROUGH MID AFTERNOON. THIS AREA WILL EXPERIENCE ADDITIONAL

    MOIST ADVECTION AND UPSLOPE FLOW...AIDING IN TSTM DEVELOPMENT AND

    MAINTENANCE...AND COMBINING WITH SFC HEATING TO YIELD ENHANCED SVR

    THREAT IN NARROW/WNW-ESE ALIGNED CORRIDOR. ALTHOUGH BUOYANCY WILL

    BE MRGL IN THIS SEGMENT OF FRONTAL ZONE...MLCAPES AROUND 500 J/KG

    MAY DEVELOP CONCURRENT WITH VERY STG DEEP-LAYER SHEAR...E.G. 60-70

    KT EFFECTIVE BULK SHEAR MAGNITUDES...AND 0-1 KM SRH 150-300 J/KG.

    SEVERAL TORNADOES...A FEW POTENTIALLY SIGNIFICANT...ALONG WITH LARGE

    HAIL AND SVR GUSTS...ARE POSSIBLE.

    ...CENTRAL/SRN PLAINS...

    STRONG DIABATIC SFC HEATING...COMBINED WITH ASCENT ALONG DRYLINE AND

    FRONT...SHOULD CONTRIBUTE TO ADDITIONAL DEVELOPMENT MID-LATE

    AFTERNOON ALONG/AHEAD OF DRYLINE AND ALONG/S OF FRONT. SUPERCELLS

    FORMING IN THIS REGIME WILL OFFER THREAT OF TORNADOES ANYTIME DURING

    THEIR MATURITY...BUT PARTICULARLY UPON INTERACTING WITH FRONTAL

    ZONE...WHERE LOW LEVEL VORTICITY...STORM-RELATIVE FLOW AND SRH ALL

    ARE MAXIMIZED. STRONGER UPPER WINDS SHOULD ALLOW FOR MORE

    PRECIPITATION VENTING DOWNSHEAR...PERHAPS COUNTERBALANCING

    TENDENCIES FOR SEEDING AND INTERFERENCE FROM CLOSE-PROXIMITY STORMS.

    THESE FACTORS..ALONG WITH AFOREMENTIONED ENVIRONMENTAL

    INGREDIENTS...SUGGEST SEVERAL LONG-LIVED/CYCLIC SUPERCELLS AGAIN ARE

    POSSIBLE...PRODUCING TORNADOES...SOME SIGNIFICANT...ALONG WITH LARGE

    HAIL AND DAMAGING GUSTS.

    OUTFLOW ASSOCIATED MCS NOW N OF OKC HAS CREATED AREA OF RELATIVELY

    LOW THETAE AIR...HOWEVER THIS SHOULD ADVECT NWD AND MIX AWAY THROUGH

    MORNING HOURS...AND ALLOW ROBUST MOISTURE RETURN NWD ACROSS WRN OK

    AND WRN KS DURING DAYTIME. PRIND 60S F SFC DEW POINTS WILL BE

    COMMON IN MOIST SECTOR BY AFTERNOON...WITH NARROW CORRIDOR OF 50S

    EXTENDING NWWD INVOF FRONTAL ZONE TOWARD EXTREME NERN CO...NEB

    PANHANDLE AND PORTIONS E-CENTRAL/SERN WY. THIS WILL COMBINE WITH

    SFC HEATING AND STEEP MIDLEVEL LAPSE RATES TO YIELD 2000-3500 J/KG

    MLCAPES. ALTHOUGH BUOYANCY WILL DIMINISH DURING EVENING...SEVERAL

    HOURS OF SFC-BASED EFFECTIVE INFLOW PARCELS ARE EXPECTED AFTER

    SUNSET...JUXTAPOSED WITH LARGE SRH RESULTING FROM LENGTHENING OF LOW

    LEVEL HODOGRAPH BY LLJ. THEREFORE..TORNADO POTENTIAL SHOULD

    CONTINUE INTO EVENING HOURS...FOLLOWED BY GEN WEAKENING OF OVERALL

    SVR THREAT AFTER APPROXIMATELY 24/06Z.

    If the team managed to find food in Hays and stayed there over-night i hope they had their

    earplugs in as its been pretty noisey and at this very moment a severe thunderstorm warned

    cell is passing directly overhead..!! They'll need as much sleep as they can get as its gonna

    be a busy day again with a moderate risk issued and more than likely be a high risk issued later.

    Hi all, had a string of strong thunderstorms pass over in the night around 3am, 4.30am and also 7am here, Bear's Cage lightning was very severe with close cgs landing every few seconds outside the hotel for over half an hour at one point which sounded like bombs going off, guy at hotel who has been in the war in Afganhistan said this was worse than the noise of bomardment he heard there!

    Looks like today's severe risk could be just as bad if not worse than yesterday - with a better sheared environment today.

    After reviewing the 12z guidance and current obs, would suggest the general area of Dodge City to Garden City north to Scott City then east to WaKeeney is the risk zone with the highest probability of seeing tornado development, although I would include a large part of western OK in the moderate risk zone. A surface front has developed just to the south of the I-70 across Kansas, with the areas north of that likely to see heavy rain but the warmer air is not likely to move north very quickly, if at all, so the best environment remains in south central KS. Cold front appears to be developing activity slowly northwest of the risk zone I outlined, would be looking for some rapid development around Garden City in about an hour or two then an outbreak linking from there to the northern cluster, with cells moving from about 210 degrees once the action gets started. Have the feeling the eventual ground zero of this outbreak may be Kalvesta to Jetmore to northwest of Greensburg.

    With the higher dewpoints and stronger winds aloft to the west of the high risk zone, and a strong energy peak around 01 to 03z, I would not be surprised if we see larger tornadoes today that could reach F4-5 ... good luck and watch for flash flooding of rural roads from storm runoff as some rainfall amounts could be 100-200 mms (4-8 in).

    Hi all we are on the move once again, what a night the loudest thunder and brightest CGs from the bears cage that was over our hotel the noise was like explosions going of with the lightning landing in the hotel car park.

    today looking even better though it will have to go some to top yesterday!

    shall update you all when we get in position in a few hours

    I think Northern OK, could have a few very strong but isolated storms later today with rediculous parameters in place. If anything does form in this area, it will explode as it heads north into KS. SB cape already over 4000 into the Greensberg area with 400 SR Helicity by midnight being ample for strong tornadoes. This is probably much more conditional than a further northern target but I'd say the DDC area would be a reasonable start location. Would not say anything bad about any location due nroth of that upto about I70 though :o

    Currently headed from Hays to Dodge City, getting into clearer skies near Kinsley with pronounced cumulus field devloping in very moist air with 64F Dps, as high as 70F Dps southeast at Pratt, not suprised 4000 j/kg in the area already ... temp currently 82F at 1.20pm. SW KS looks like prime area for severe supercells to develop with potential for long track tornadoes later as the storms hit the warm front boundary towards the I-70. SPC should update in next hour - so maybe another high risk day. Shear parameters look even more favourable for tornadoes today than yesterday!

    I also expect a high risk, unless the SPC deem the threat to be too isolated. Any cell forming in KS is going to be spinning like a top today...

    CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY

    VALID 231858Z - 232100Z

    SWLY LOW-LEVEL DRY FLOW HAS INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY ALONG THE SRN

    HIGH PLAINS AS A SHORTWAVE TROUGH CONTINUES TO TRANSLATE NNEWD

    THROUGH NM EARLY THIS AFTN. WOULD EXPECT THAT THE DRYLINE

    CIRCULATION WILL BECOME ENHANCED BETWEEN 20-22Z FROM WRN SHERMAN

    COUNTY SWD INTO ERN KEARNY...ERN STEVENS COUNTIES AS THE WAVE

    GLANCES THE REGION.

    RADAR/VSBL SATL SHOWS THAT THE SWWD MOVING OUTFLOW IN NRN/CNTRL KS

    WAS BEGINNING TO SLOW AND WILL LIKELY STALL INVOF KGLD SEWD INTO NRN

    BARTON COUNTY. WARM SECTOR BETWEEN THE DRY LINE AND THIS BOUNDARY

    WILL BECOME STRONGLY UNSTABLE OWING TO IMPRESSIVE LOW/MID-60S SFC

    DEW POINTS BENEATH VERY STEEP H7-H5 LAPSE RATES.

    TSTM INITIATION IS LIKELY WITHIN THE DRYLINE CIRCULATION BY

    21Z...PROBABLY EVOLVING SWD FROM ACTIVITY E OF KGLD. LOW-LEVEL FLOW

    SHOULD GENTLY BACK INTO MORE OF A SELY DIRECTION LATER THIS

    AFTN...EFFECTIVELY INCREASING LOW-LEVEL SRH ABOVE 200 M2/S2. AT THE

    SAME TIME...MORE MERIDIONAL FLOW SHOULD BE CONFINED UPSTREAM OVER

    CO...ALLOWING DEEP LAYER SHEAR VECTORS TO MAINTAIN A SUFFICIENT

    DEGREE OF NORMAL COMPONENT ACROSS THE DRYLINE FOR DISCRETE STORMS.

    GIVEN POTENTIAL FOR DISCRETE STORMS...LOW LCLS AND INCREASING

    SRH...TORNADOES WILL BE LIKELY...ESPECIALLY NEAR/N OF KDDC NNEWD

    TOWARD HYS/KGBD. BUNKERS SUGGESTS A STORM MOTION OF 190-200 DEGREES

    AT 25-30 KTS.

    The cell moving north from Garden City towards Scott City looks like it should get a tornado warning any moment ... and that one is closer to the team, the one up by the I-70 is probably out of reach ... would be looking for a possible intercept 3-5 miles east of Scott City in 30 mins.
