okay, so i missed a day; july 11 forecasts

yeah, i missed a day. i went out chasing yesterday afternoon (caught a shelf cloud and that's about it) and for other various reasons, i didn't do the extended forecast. i'm sure you've pretty much got the picture by now, though, that long-range models are somewhat useless in terms of forecasting for chasing. regardless of that, i'm going to do this up till the day we leave.

july 14: fargo. most models are now pretty much converging on this area being a focus for that day. now i'm not saying it'll be definitely near there, but as we draw nearer and the models converge on a solution, i can be more confident in the forecast.
july 15: regina-moose jaw (gem) or southeast-central montana (gfs).
july 16: pilot mound-devils lake (gfs) or glasgow, mt (gem). boy, now they're really diverging.
july 17: maybe eastern nebraska (gfs) or a good setup near virden, mb (gem).
july 18: eastern kansas (gfs) or bismarck (gem).
july 19: nowhere (gfs) or pilot mound (gem).
july 20: both gem and gfs indicate nowhere.

it just goes to show the variability amongst the models and the changeability from run ro run.

What do you think of Wednesday the 13th? When is the Saskatoon area going to see some action?
