Chasing Prospects for Thursday May 19, 2011

All the factors coming together for a C/SC Kansas chase today.  Walt and I will probably target in the Pratt, KS area initially and adjust according to the trajectory of the triple point.  Liking the area on the dryline just S/SE of the surface low.

SC/SW Oklahoma High-based Severe Storms 05/08/2011

Eric and Gene left Cordell at about 4:30 pm and headed out toward some cells developing in the Carnegie to Anadarko to Apache triangle in Caddo County.  All of the convection was high-based and at times marginally severe.  Nothing to write home about, but better than sitting at home.

Chasing Prospects for Sunday 05/08/2011

Looking at a possible "gentlemen's chase" late Sunday afternoon in Western Oklahoma.  Abnormally warm temperatures with relatively large dewpoint depressions and this year's ever present EML in this area make for only slight probabilities.  But, if an isolated storm can form somewhere along the dryline in western Oklahoma it will most certainly be severe.
