I left for western Oklahoma around 11am and had intended to set up in Anadarko, but decided to play it safe and target Weatherford after seeing some higher helicity values closer to I-40 with earlier initiation. After the first wave of morning rains moved through the instability picked up and storms began to fire. The bad news is they were traveling so fast to the northeast there was no way to keep up with them. But, further to the south storms started to form near Frederick and quickly... [Read More]

With the big Arctic outbreak overrunning the country, it looks like chasing may be pretty much done for 2014, so let's get started posting our chase stats for the year. (If the pattern changes and something does still happen before the end of the year, feel free to update your stats.)

Interesting setup tomorrow considering how far west and how late in the year it is. It is not hard to find things wrong with the setup, but there is enough right, that it is worth watching.

The cold core (500mb -22 across SW KS) is my focus due to proximity and playing a warm sector that gets worked over in the morning rarely works out for me. SW KS looks like the only place a daytime tornado is possible. Warm sector goes up too close to dark or after also. Dew points could be... [Read More]
