    Slight risk for Tuesday 8th May 2007

    At the moment we are going to head south and west for the Midland / Odessa area, liking the New Mexico escarpment for storm initiation, hopefully get some clear skies and look for an old outflow boundary for storms to fire.

    Nothing much happened on Day 8 apart from recharging of batteries and Ian's Gut !! The previous day saw us flying down rain soaked dirt roads, the car took a right hammering, even a Monsoon of epic proportions last night could not shift this lot.

    I think today may be more of a stormhunt, than chase.

    Location for today's adventure..

    post-1669-1178628856_thumb.jpg

    Today's outlook..

    DAY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK

    NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK

    0718 AM CDT TUE MAY 08 2007

    VALID 081300Z - 091200Z

    ...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM SOUTHWEST TX INTO SOUTHERN

    OK...

    UPPER TROUGH OVER THE ROCKIES CONTINUES TO SLOWLY WEAKEN AND MOVE

    EASTWARD THIS MORNING. MODEL GUIDANCE IS IN AGREEMENT THAT WESTERLY

    MID LEVEL WINDS WILL INCREASE ACROSS TX TODAY AS TROUGH MOVES INTO

    SOUTHWEST TX/NM...WHILE SOUTHERLY LOW LEVEL WINDS REMAIN ACROSS THE

    REGION. NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS HAVE BEEN ONGOING THIS MORNING FROM

    THE ELP AREA INTO OK. THESE STORMS HAVE REINFORCED THE COLD

    FRONT/OUTFLOW BOUNDARY ACROSS THE REGION...WHICH WILL LIKELY ACT AS

    THE MAIN FOCUS FOR STRONG/SEVERE STORMS TODAY.

    ...SOUTHEAST NM/SOUTHWEST TX...

    PRESENT INDICATIONS ARE THAT SCATTERED STRONG STORMS WILL PERSIST

    THROUGH THE MORNING ACROSS PARTS OF WEST TX AND SOUTHEAST NM.

    SOUTHEASTERLY LOW LEVEL/UPSLOPE FLOW ACROSS THIS REGION IS AIDING

    LIFT...WHILE APPROACHING UPPER TROUGH PROVIDES FAVORABLE LARGE SCALE

    ASCENT. SUFFICIENT VERTICAL SHEAR EXISTS ACROSS THIS REGION FOR

    SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF LARGE HAIL. THIS ACTIVITY MAY HAVE A HARD

    TIME MAINTAINING INTENSITY AS IT MOVES INTO MORE STABLE LOW-LEVEL

    AIR MASS OVER WEST TX LATER TODAY.

    ...CENTRAL TX INTO SOUTHERN OK...

    CONVECTIVE REINFORCED COLD FRONT CURRENTLY EXTENDS FROM NEAR ABI

    INTO SOUTHWEST OK. VERY MOIST AND MODERATELY UNSTABLE AIR MASS

    RESIDES EAST OF THE BOUNDARY...WHERE SOME DAYTIME HEATING IS ALSO

    LIKELY TODAY. SCATTERED STORMS ARE FORECAST TO INTENSIFY ALONG THIS

    BOUNDARY BY MID AFTERNOON...SPREADING EASTWARD THROUGH THE EVENING.

    VERTICAL SHEAR IS STRONGEST OVER OK/NORTH TX...AND WEAKENS WITH

    SOUTHWARD EXTENT. A FEW STORMS IN THIS ZONE WILL BE CAPABLE OF

    LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS. STORMS MAY DEVELOP SOUTHWARD INTO

    THE MOUNTAINS OF NORTHERN MEXICO...AND SUBSEQUENTLY INTO THE RIO

    GRANDE VALLEY OF WEST CENTRAL TX THIS EVENING.

    ...LOWER AND MID MS VALLEY...

    A RELATIVELY MOIST AND MODERATELY UNSTABLE AIR MASS IS EXPECTED TO

    DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON FROM PARTS OF IL SOUTHWESTWARD INTO MO/AR/LA

    AND NORTHEAST TX. ISOLATED AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE

    ALONG THIS AXIS...BUT VERTICAL SHEAR WILL BE QUITE WEAK. HAIL AND

    GUSTY WINDS COULD OCCUR WITH STRONGER CELLS...BUT ORGANIZED SEVERE

    STORMS ARE NOT ANTICIPATED.

    ..HART/GRAMS.. 05/08/2007

    This looks like the sort of set-up where an extensive area gets downburst straight-line wind damage, if anyone is in touch with the team, tell them to be on the watch for more than just isolated tornadic winds here, could be a large-scale wind damage event with 70-120 mph winds as this intensifies -- usually 4 to 8 pm is the time for this to explode, currently 3:30 pm CDT but 2:30 MDT and they are well west in central time zone, so let's say around 2200z to 0200z.

      Cool with heavy thundery downpours through the weekend & next week

      If you're hoping for some dry and warm weather, then it looks like you're in for a long wait, as the cool and showery conditions will continue through the weekend and much of next week. Some heavy and thundery downpours for many most days. Read the full update here

      Cool Showerfest continues for the next week. Hints of a change beyond that?

      With the jet stream close to the south and low pressure nearby over the next 7 days, expect showers or longer spells of rain over many areas, staying cool too, with temperatures below average. But hints of something drier and more settled arriving next weekend. View the full blog here
