Moderate Risk

There is a moderate risk of severe weather today and tomorrow out in the Plains. Wish I could be there and chase. From The SPC...

...ERN CO PLAINS/WRN KS SWD THRU TX PANHANDLE AND WRN OK... SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP BY MID/LATE AFTERNOON ALONG THE DEVELOPING DRY LINE TO SE OF CO SURFACE LOW. THE CURRENT CANOPY OF SUBTROPICAL MID/UPR CLOUDINESS SHOULD SHIFT AWAY TO THE E BY THIS AFTERNOON PERMITTING STRONG SURFACE HEATING ALONG DRY LINE. WITH MLCAPES CLIMBING TO 1000-1500 J/KG SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD DEVELOP ALONG AND JUST E OF DRY LINE BY LATE AFTERNOON. VEERING SHEAR PROFILES BOTH ALONG DRY LINE AND RETREATING WARM FRONT SUPPORT SUPERCELLS. IN ADDITION TO VERY LARGE HAIL A FEW TORNADOES ARE EXPECTED. STRONG TORNADOES WILL BE POSSIBLE BY EVENING AS BOTH KINEMATIC AND THERMODYNAMIC SUPPORT CONTINUES TO INCREASE.

It's the story of our life. We are all trapped in a weather abyss... I'm really liking the idea of a field trip.

I tried to get the Dr. to write me a prescription today for SDS treatment... perhaps, then my insurance would cover a chase trip... what? They have been known to pay for a move for people with severe asthma...

I need to come up with a plan for a cheap way to chase.

I think I might have found that way...

Just wandered in here and thought I'd drop a note. You're welcome up on the northeastern plains of CO any time. A friend of mine said she saw two funnels drop over the weekend, and last night's festivities probably would have been right up your alley.

Last night was definitely up our alley... are we that obvious?! LOL!!!

Thanks for the invite and for stopping in; we might just have to plan a road trip up your way.
