Next two days at least: chasing on Friday/Saturday if current trends hold. Probably will stretch into Sun/Mon. We’ll see.

Hi everyone! So I’ve gotten a lot of requests to do a morning forecast routine walkthrough and I honestly don’t know how I’d even do that. The reason is my routine isn’t a routine and I don’t even have a set number of items I look at. Some days I look at every possible value, some days I only need to look at one or two things to chase effectively. So instead of lying and going through a routine that doesn’t exist, I’m going to spend a bit of time going over my ten favorite things to look at for hunting supercells and tornadoes on the Plains. These may be applicable in other areas, but I’m focusing mainly on the Plains since its what I forecast and chase. So with that said…let’s dive, right in… Check us out on the web: https://ift.tt/1bwSWxW

An almost ‘no precip’ severe storm that was dropping some big hail back on May 25 in the #Texas #Panhandle. This was a brief, but cool storm evolution but for #stormchasers an all too common theme on the Southern Plains this #Spring #storm season.

A messy overall evolution across CO into KS today – but I do wish I was going to be present. Two targets I’d consider: 1)E CO, I like the upslope component with better UA winds. Lesser moisture and potential for storms east to mess with stuff west. 2)KS along boundary on I-70.

There’s so much more to share from this day but to get a quick recap together, this was a heck of a chase day that would’ve stood up as good even on a relatively solid year. The tornado near Mobeetie wasn’t much to write home about and we couldn’t confirm ground circulation from where we were – but the structure of this storm was some of the best of the past couple of seasons. Its funny we adopted the name Tornado Titans when some of us (ahem Chris especially) enjoy structure as much/more than the vaunted twisters. Anywho, here’s some vid from this day – look for more from this one when WiLD Weather launches some new episodes late Summer into Fall! Check us out on the web: https://ift.tt/1bwSWxW

The beauty of a Plains #supercell. This one captured on May 13, 2018 west of Childress, #Texas. This #Spring #storm season is one of the slowest ever, but there were still a few moments of really pretty skies to be enraptured by. #stormchasing #igTexas #TexasSkies #texasweather #stormy #badweather #nature #natgeo #earthpix #nakedplanet #atmosphere #thunderstorm #thunderstorms https://ift.tt/2JUY73x
