I'll get the discussion rolling on this day because I'm conflicted on what I'm seeing. First off, I know there's been run-to-run discrepancies with the GFS on different aspects. Mainly, the moisture. It appears this might end up being a case of "just in time" moisture, which usually means this could be a case of shallow moisture. The GFS has stuck to a pretty general location of the dryline; roughly from Midlannd-Pampa-Oakley-Kearney. During the day it appears only low 50s dews before... [Read More]

I was thinking to combine a multi-day thread into one but I think this is fine. Let's get started.

This weekend I think is going to be the most interesting severe weather event so far this Spring season, particularly Sunday and perhaps Monday. A deep upper level low will be coming out of the West Coast by the end of this week. A surging LLJ across the Central and Southern Plains will allows dewpoints to reach in the mid 60s across the region. GFS depicts on Saturday that the... [Read More]

El Reno Question

Apr 22, 2014 - 5:36 PM - by Severe
Hi all,

We're any ST members chasing the May 31, 2013 El Reno tornado
in a white truck?

I saw a white truck parked along SW 15th just west of Rt. 81 when
the tornadoes core was about to cross Rt. 81 the core was about 150
yards due west of me.

The video is posted below (sorry it's so shaky, the inflow jet was a
little strong).

Thanks,

John

Chasers creating panic on social network sites

Just wondering if anyone has noticed this?

There seems to be a growing trend on social networking sites of chasers posting "hyped-up" forecasts on severe weather days to generate more followers, e.g., potential customers. I see words like "significant" and "outbreak" being used on slight risk days or days when no such forecast is likely and no WFO or SPC outlook is using similar terminology. It's almost like chasers and some news /... [Read More]

Chasing software wants and wishes

I was curious what everyone out there wants or dreams of when it comes to chasing. What existing or new technology or software would make your chasing easier? What are your pain points?

Biggest pain points - I'd like an offline mapping solution that's lighter than Strips and Trips. Offline Google Maps might be perfect. I'd also like a free GpsGate alternative that doesn't do anything fancy besides splitting the ports and logging, and isn't a bear to get working in various... [Read More]
