    Shifted the MDT risk area a little further S and SW, so a trek SW from here in Great Bend where we've stayed overnight. Storms look to be mostly big hailers with strong possibly damaging wind gusts, tornado threat only 5% today - so no core punching today!

    DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK

    NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK

    0739 AM CDT MON MAY 26 2008

    VALID 261300Z - 271200Z

    ...THERE IS A MDT RISK OF SVR TSTMS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING OVER

    PARTS OF SOUTHWEST KS...THE EASTERN TX PANHANDLE...AND NORTHWEST

    OK....

    ...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM PARTS OF TX...ACROSS THE

    MID MS AND OH VALLEYS...NY/PA...

    LARGE SCALE UPPER PATTERN REMAINS SIMILAR TO YESTERDAY WITH UPPER

    LOW OVER CA/NV AND BAND OF MODERATELY STRONG WEST-SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW

    EXTENDING FROM THE CENTRAL PLAINS INTO THE GREAT LAKES AND OHIO

    VALLEY. THE PRIMARY DIFFERENCE TODAY INVOLVES THE EXTENT OF

    CONVECTION THAT OCCURRED YESTERDAY AND THE MORE DISRUPTED LOW LEVEL

    MOISTURE/INSTABILITY PARAMETERS. THERE WILL REMAIN A THREAT OF

    WIDELY SCATTERED SEVERE STORMS OVER A LARGE AREA TODAY...BUT THE

    ONLY AREA OF SIGNIFICANT CONCENTRATION IS EXPECTED TO BE ACROSS

    PARTS OF KS/OK/TX.

    ...OK/TX/KS...

    OVERNIGHT CONVECTION HAS RESULTED IN AN OUTFLOW BOUNDARY ANALYZED AT

    12Z FROM CENTRAL AR TO THE OKC AREA INTO NORTHWEST OK. THIS FEATURE

    IS DISSIPATING QUICKLY OVER WESTERN OK...WHICH WILL ALLOW RICH

    MOISTURE TO RETURN TO SOUTHWEST KS BY AFTERNOON. A WELL-DEFINED

    DRYLINE IS EXPECTED TO BE PRESENT TODAY FROM SOUTHWEST KS INTO THE

    EASTERN TX PANHANDLE...WITH TEMPERATURES WELL INTO THE 90S WEST OF

    THE DRYLINE AND DEWPOINTS IN THE UPPER 60S TO THE EAST. THIS WILL

    RESULT IN AN AXIS OF VERY UNSTABLE CONDITIONS WITH MLCAPE VALUES

    OVER 3000 J/KG AND A RATHER WEAK CAP. PRESENT INDICATIONS ARE THAT

    CONVECTION WILL INTENSIFY BY MID AFTERNOON ALONG THE DRYLINE FROM

    THE TX PANHANDLE TO THE TRIPLE POINT OVER SOUTHWEST KS. THESE

    STORMS WILL LIKELY BE SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF VERY LARGE

    HAIL...DAMAGING WINDS...AND ISOLATED TORNADOES. STORMS WILL BECOME

    MORE NUMEROUS THROUGH THE EARLY EVENING AND EVENTUALLY COALESCE INTO

    AN MCS THAT SHOULD TRACK SOUTHEASTWARD INTO SOUTH CENTRAL KS AND

    NORTHERN OK. THIS AREA MAY SEE AN ENHANCED THREAT OF MORE

    WIDESPREAD DAMAGING WINDS.

    CAP HAS HELD THROUGH 18-19Z...BUT INCREASING SURFACE CONVERGENCE AND

    STRONG HEATING WITHIN VERY MOIST BOUNDARY LAYER SHOULD OVERCOME

    VIGOROUS UPDRAFTS CAN BE EXPECTED TO BECOME SEVERE QUICKLY WITHIN

    LARGE RESERVOIR OF STRONG INSTABILITY. DEEP LAYER SHEAR WILL

    SUPPORT SUPERCELLS...WITH PRIMARY THREAT OF VERY LARGE HAIL.

    HOWEVER AS SUPERCELLS MATURE AND INTERACT WITH VARIOUS SURFACE

    FEATURES IN PLACE OVER THE AREA...TORNADO THREAT SHOULD INCREASE

    THROUGH LATE TODAY...ESPECIALLY INTO KS. EVENTUAL EVOLUTION INTO

    THE NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER HAS ISSUED A

    TORNADO WATCH FOR PORTIONS OF

    PARTS OF SOUTH CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST KANSAS

    LARGE PART OF WESTERN OKLAHOMA

    EASTERN TEXAS PANHANDLE

    EFFECTIVE THIS MONDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING FROM 150 PM UNTIL 900

    PM CDT.

    TORNADOES...HAIL TO 3 INCHES IN DIAMETER...THUNDERSTORM WIND

    GUSTS TO 70 MPH...AND DANGEROUS LIGHTNING ARE POSSIBLE IN THESE

    AREAS.

    THE TORNADO WATCH AREA IS APPROXIMATELY ALONG AND 85 STATUTE

    MILES EAST AND WEST OF A LINE FROM 70 MILES NORTHWEST OF

    HUTCHINSON KANSAS TO 10 MILES SOUTH SOUTHEAST OF CHILDRESS TEXAS.

    FOR A COMPLETE DEPICTION OF THE WATCH SEE THE ASSOCIATED WATCH

    OUTLINE UPDATE (WOUS64 KWNS WOU4).

    REMEMBER...A TORNADO WATCH MEANS CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR

    TORNADOES AND SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS IN AND CLOSE TO THE WATCH

    AREA. PERSONS IN THESE AREAS SHOULD BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR

    THREATENING WEATHER CONDITIONS AND LISTEN FOR LATER STATEMENTS

    AND POSSIBLE WARNINGS.

    DISCUSSION...WITH LITTLE REMAINING CINH AND A VERY UNSTABLE AIR MASS

    TO E OF DRY LINE FROM SWRN KS SSWWD THRU TX PANHANDLE...SEVERE

    THUNDERSTORMS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP RAPIDLY. WITH 30-40KT OF DEEP

    LAYER SHEAR COUPLED WITH MLCAPES AOA 3000 J/KG...SUPERCELLS ARE

    LIKELY. GREATEST POTENTIAL FOR TORNADOES WILL BE ASSOCIATED WITH

    LOW LEVEL CONVERGENCE ON OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES ACROSS S CENTRAL KS

    WHERE ENHANCED SHEAR WILL BE AVAILABLE.

    we are currently sittning in cold water Kansas just waiting for the action to start not long now me thinks

    Hi IAN, we are currently sitting under a lot of cloud strong easterly winds and a temp of 11.5c. [Just saying that to make you homesick!!] :) I dont think so!. Been enjoying your adventures and hopefully it will go out with a "BANG"! Just been looking at the latest radar and there are some strong storms which moving North from France. Hopefully they will make it this far North ...we shall see...?

    Best Wishes IAN. :)

    Sat here in Coldwater, cells popping up near the cold front to our north, but we are interested on stuff developing along the dryline here and further south, Tcu begining to bubble-up around here now so cap should hopefully break here like further south to the east of Amarillo. Dave Ewoldt, Lorraine and ITV camera man should join us here to in a while.

    THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 374 CONTINUES.

    OK INTO S-CENTRAL KS JUST EAST OF P28 WHICH THEN EXTENDS NWD TO EAST

    OF RSL...WHERE IT INTERSECTS COLD FRONT EXTENDING SWWD INTO THE WRN

    HOWEVER...TORNADIC POTENTIAL WILL QUICKLY INCREASE AS STORMS

    INTERACT WITH OUTFLOW BOUNDARY OVER SWRN/N-CENTRAL-NWRN OK THROUGH

    Got to the Best Western in Witchita about 2 hours ago very good chase if a bit un-nerving, being under the hook of a storm in Pratt with wrapping rain curtains which dropped a damaging tornado 2 miles south of the town (which we didn't see through the rain) when we went through. While we stopped in a car park in Pratt - we had rain spinning around us - possible vorticy or minor tornadic disturbance close to the tornado - very eeirey!

    Hook of storm over Pratt which dropped tornado south of town:

    post-1052-1211861186_thumb.jpg

    We followed the southern end of the storm for a while to see if still was producing a tornado NE of Pratt it had a really good hook on it for a while but then gave up on it as we could see nothing but heavy rain/hail cores, we gave up and headed east to Wichita, unfotunately to get there we had to drive through big hail to get there, hail was the size of baseballs and we had to pull off the road into the protection of warehouse for a while before it eased - fortunately no smashed windows - but we may see some dents in the car body. When we reached the hotel, another severe t-storm rolled in with extremely heavy rain and lots of lightning. Finally died down now.

    protection of wharehouse for a while before it eased -

    warehouse or whorehouse? or is it a combination of the two?

    Sounds like you were pretty close to baggign another tornado then with only the rain obscuring your view. Given not much else reported you were in the right place really. Looks like a calmer couple of days although there will be chasing today. Setting up for another big outbreak in the Iowa area and surrounding states towards the weekend. I'm not sure what day you fly back but Friday looks like a good chase day if you don't need to rush back to DFW.

    We fly back Sunday afternoon, but we have to drop off Andy at DFW for his flight on Saturday ... so not sure about a jaunt up to Nebraska for Thursday's risk then back down to Kansas for Friday - as it puts us a long way north ... we'll see, anyway - we'll be heading down into Oklahoma for today.
