Still Quiet Today… Severe Storms Monday
I am not ready to call it an outbreak, but I would expect to see several tornadoes across Oklahoma and Kansas on Monday.
Here is the SPC Outlook:
I really wish I had the time to drive down to Kansas to chase tomorrow. BTW…. Vortex 2 is going to deploy tomorrow. What is Vortex 2? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IF5YO7R4JRk
VORTEX2 is by far the largest and most ambitious effort ever made to understand tornadoes.
We expect over 100 scientists and over 40 science and support vehicles to participate in this unique, fully nomadic, field program during its second and last field season, May/June 2010.
The Dryline is going to be very firm, the instability will be in place and there should be enough directional shear in the atmosphere to have a couple of long lived tornadoes. This is what the SPC has to say about this:
***SUPERCELLS WITH LONG-TRACK STRONG TORNADOES AND VERY LARGE HAIL EXPECTED MONDAY LATE AFTN/EVENING ACROSS PARTS OF CNTRL/N OK...SE KS AND SW MO***
The Severe risk moves to the Ohio River Valley for Tuesday.
I wish I had more time to go into this more indepth, but I have a few other deadlines I have to meet here in the weather war room.
