    Big Big day coming up, all models all over the place at the moment, will decide in the morning and see where that warm front has meandered to, some say SD/NE Border others further south, one thing is for sure it could be a very big day with all parameters maxed out.

    A number of issues with this set-up, some that scream 'severe-end event' and others that suggest an early line-out.As Paul says the clever money is on the WF and latest runs suggest it to lie further North at 20Z than previously modelled. Storm motion level winds though will keep any cell parallel to it so a rooted cell moving due east along the front will almost certainly develop strong rotation given the scary helicity.This is the hodo from the 05Z RAP for just north of Grand Junction, NE:

    A long vertical start then looping a long way right and then back - very significant directional AND speed shear and the shape you're looking for for tornado potential.

    The caveat for me is the timing and clearing of early convection and the possibility that retreating junk interferes with the inflow region. A lot can change and targeting should be based on position of WF on obs although I wouldn't stray too far east and north and keep the DL play in mind should junk prevail further east.St Paul, NE and I'll be there by 1pm local.

    I am already thinking that a slight more North is required, still on the 281 but towards Wheeler County, NE.For a few hours conditions look favourable for a few discrete supercells with LCLs indicating low-base mesocyclones.

     

    Note metro areas of Souix City and Souix Falls under the gun this evening.

     

    Additional: 08Z RAP plonks insane deep-layer EHI of 11+ over N C Nebraska at 22Z. Presumably just on or south of the WF boundary. Phew!  Should clutter from current complex across NW NE clear by 16Z I'm guessing an upgrade to HIGH may be in order.

    Omaha NE is probably not a bad place to be. CAPE going off the charts, around 1500-3000. TORCON of a SEVEN. Wow. :help:  :help:

     

    Seriously dangerous day ahead - stay safe folks.

    The fickle synoptics continue to tease.The surface boundary/WF currently lies along the I80 in S C NE, about 100 miles further south than modelled. The earlier clutter is clearing away eastwards leaving a significantly unstable environment in it's wake with 70F+ dps. I am now looking to shuffle a bit south of St Paul down towards Grand Island/Kearney - expecting initiation around 18Z with quickly dissolving cap.A big day - stay safe.

    Sticking my neck out a bit here but with the surface WF hanging back a bit in S NE now, subtle OFBs from the earlier complex could well come into play regards interaction with the WF.Just had a check on hodos for my target area and they're off the scale to be honest - huge clockwise deeply looped profiles that scream intense and rapid rotation right up through the cell.Good luck guys - and hold tight.

    We're lunching in grand island while waiting on developments. Things are looking pretty dangerous as the derecheo passes through. Could be embedded tornadoes moving at 50-100mph, so we won't be chasing those...

    There you go - upgrade to HIGH risk E NE into IO for the bow/derecho.Tornado chances still the same in area previously highlighted.

    Hey Neil. Yes makes sense - I see there was a 100mph wind report a couple of hours ago on that Derecho - looking even more intense now.. watch out Omaha!

    Hold fire - elevated cells N NE forecast and will probably not produce but the OFB from this region - clearly seen on visible - is likely to initiate storms between Lincoln and Broken Bow in next hour.
