Wednesday, May 21, 2008
Today starts off what will be six days of chaser nirvana begining right in our backyard. While today's moisture return will be marginal there should be enough orographic lifting and steepening lapse rates for severe storms and possible land spouts in e WY and ne CO. I will be flying all the planes today as conditions allow and will be heading out with Michael and Eric around noon today.
On a side note, I have a sneaking suspicion that today may play out like May 10, 2004. On that day everything pointed to e WY as the hotspot and most chasers (including me) shot up to Cheyenne early in the afternoon. Two storms fired over the Palmer Divide at 5pm and dropped 7 of the most photogenic tornadoes I have ever seen.
I will be keeping a keen eye on the Palmer Divide today. WRF does break out storms there at 0z (6pm MDT).
