We're going!

After much discussion, we have decided to leave on our chase in the morning.

Things are starting to come together for about 5 days of okay-to-good chasing stateside. Moisture has been swept away by a cold front, but it shall gradually return, so that by next weekend the dewpoints will once again approach 20. The thing is, the farther west you go, the lower the dewpoints need to be to cause great storms.

As always, I'm excited and nervous about what the week will bring; no doubt, though, it will be unforgettable.

Note about this blog: once we're on the road, I will likely update more than once a day, pretty much whenever I can. I'll try to include our location, our proposed destination and any interesting stories that may come up. Also I'll discuss model output and differences, and the implications on what we may see.

The pattern could always be worse, but it still looks like your group stands a good chance of seeing at least one supercell this week--perhaps just SSE of the Black Hills? Have fun!
