DAILY CHASE REPORT 190504 - FINAL REPORT

Sorry guys but I have to report - another BUST. Storms failed to fire like we expected. An area of cloud plus shortwave ridge meant the 5000 j/kg of CAPE we had went to waste. There is of course tomorrow but here is my frustrating day. For the record, we have done 6700 miles, 700 of those today. Plus, I have a max of 3 days chasing left if I include Saturday (at a push). Never mind, my eyes look towards the Atlantic and GOM next!!!!

13:35

Heading N on I29 towards Omaha, NE on the border with Iowa. There is a MODERATE risk of severe weather today, including tornadoes. DP is currently 73F and temps 85F. A warm front will be the focus for the severe thunderstorm development.

14:02

NWS radio reporting that there will be conference calls between Storm Spotter Managers and the media this afternoon – things are looking primed for a significant severe weather outbreak. DP’s have now reached a massive 74F – the highest of the trip so far. Some CU starting to build.

15:46

Heading E on the I80 for a while just to see what is happening before we turn around and head N on the I29. Some cells have fired up near Sioux City – not sure of their potential. A tornado watch box has gone up to our NW. DP here 71F and temp 82F. Only concern now is the increase in cloud cover – a possible fly in the ointment.

19:28

Nothing kicked off down south by the time we left so we have hacked it up the I29 to Sioux Falls in South Dakota and we will then head W on I90 in the hope of catching some supercells that have fired up along a cold front. There is a slim chance of seeing something at least.

20:24

We are just N of Salem in Minor County, SD. We are gonna have to call it another bust. Really peed off actually and just want to get to a hotel and forget the whole day. 600 miles for nothing.
