We need an EML and 200 helicity, coinciding with good mid level lapse rates and excellent forcing. 

Saturday evening has that lol... 7.0 C/KM midlapse rates... helicity over 200... and a WF draped nearby

I'll root for you then. MBY sounding looks pretty awful.

Historically, a setup like this breeds flash flooding on our side of the front.

I wish we could get one of those storms warned in NW KS right now for 80mph wind gusts and baseball sized hail... now that would be fun to see over here

I have seen baseball sized hail twice -- Kettering, MD in 1978 and near Orlando, FL in 1992, and I never want to see it again.  It is devastating.

The Kettering storm took all of the windows one one side of our house.  My dad was sick!  But, the upshot is they got an insurance-covered new roof less than a year before selling.

The 1992 storm in FL scared the life out of me -- caused $1500 damage to my car.  No windows lost, but some cars looked like they took shotgun blasts to windows.  Just crazy.
