I’m heading out on a storm chase to north central Kansas today!
Note: 8 a.m. SPC now up to a moderate risk!
The dry line, currently present in southwest Kansas will advance east and northeast today. It will do so into air which will be very unstable. Also, a temperature boundary will be left behind by a line a storms now advancing through northeast Kansas.
All of this will set the stage for possible tornado development. The area in yellow is pretty much the target area with only minor adjustments needed.
I am hoping that any tornadoes that develop today will do so over open country! (my last two chases had tornadoes in metro areas: Wichita and Oklahoma City).
This is a “Quick Shot” tour with no overnight stay. We’ll leave the city around 10 a.m. We would be back in Springfield between Midnight and 1 a.m.
