    May 27-29 Severe Potential

    Yea I had a rotating wall cloud in Dunlap. Just couldn't tighten enough to produce. If winds were backed or even southerly today would have been much different in IL

    May 27-29 Severe Potential

    Warm front surged too fast across IL prior to storm initiation. Surface winds veered terribly and killed low level shear. Storm mode was great further south but just couldn't tighten up with lack of low level shear. Needed that warm front. Had a nice LP supercell in Peoria county with rotating wall cloud. Came close to producing

    MAY 20, 2019 High Risk

    They have the same probs. 95 is the highest it goes. But comparing to 4-27-11 is not wise. That's a rare kind of outbreak

    MAY 20, 2019 High Risk

    Yea this definitely has setup much further west. I think capping and lack of forcing mechanism in OK has held things back thus far

    MAY 20, 2019 High Risk

    Also wondering if the cloud debris from TX storms is somewhat inhibiting the storms in SW Oklahoma. Seen that happen before

    I noticed that. Maybe residual capping?

    18z OUN sounding is just wow..the hodograph looks like the STL arch

    Mid to Late May 2019 Severe Threats

    It's legit. Saw someone share a screenshot from nws chat confirming high risk upgrade at 06z outlook. But can't share the image

    Had a CC drop for sure

    April 29-May 1 Severe Weather

    GFS is pretty much the only model showing this. NAM and Euro both push the front very south which makes sense given the seasonally cold air mass in the Plains with that high pressure. GFS tends to underestimate cold frontal surges. But SPC must be giving some credence to it because if they were following anything close to the other models, OK would pretty much be out of this

    Unbelievable. Seems like every yr it is getting later and later to see any decent Plains setups. Anymore outbreaks are happening in less favorable chase terrain. Just would be nice to have a normal tornado season in classic Tornado Alley. The last several years have been plagued with poorly timed waves or just garbage wind profiles plagued with weaknesses and VBV. Miss those days of bowling balls slamming into a warm sector. To be dealing with crashing cold fronts in late April is ridiculous. Hoping this yr will pull a 2013 and turn around real quick by mid to late May

    Thanks for the summary. Appreciate it. Haven't had much time to dig I to things besides briefly looking at GFS. Nice to see the pattern turning around. Hopefully this continues into May

    April 29-May 1 Severe Weather

    I haven't seen Euro but GFS left me pretty unimpressed. Curious what SPC is looking at because their discussion was pretty robust

    Severe weather event for April 24-25

    Dates on this aren't correct

    April 17-18 Severe Weather

    Eh it's NAM and it is in it's long range. I would put more trust in GFS or Euro at this point. 12z GFS still looked pretty good. I don't have access to Euro anymore
