    Wow, what a set-up, jeez I nearly missed this one completely thanks to category-4 Gonu. Anyway i strongly suspect the next few days (2-3) will almost certainly get a high risk when the days in question pops-up. A low pressure down to 978mbs in June is amazing, esp for inland part sof America which lacks the thermal gradient you see over places such as the Atlantic, but this time round the gradient looks amazing, the models are just amazing, so much instablity is present and the jet streak is something that wouldn't be out of place in late winter!

    Paul- good on you for going out there again, I think we have a shot at another super outbreak and as Roger said given the power of the jet I really wouldn't be surprised to see some really powerful tornadoes.

    Day 3 MDT risk has been shoved further East - with the upper trough probably moving more quickly East than originally modelled, Ern Iowa and Minnesota under MDT. Maybe a alot of travelling over next few days to position yourselves for best potential:


    NWS discussion for today:

    day 1 convective outlook

    nws storm prediction center norman ok

    1255 am cdt tue jun 05 2007

    .. nrn rockies/high plains...

    exit region of very pronounced upper jet will shift across the nrn

    rockies late in the period while associated sfc front will progress

    across wrn mt into ern id by 06/00z. strength of upper system will

    undoubtedly assist thunderstorm development along cold front as it

    sweeps ewd into mt/id during peak heating. forecast soundings

    across mt suggest isolated supercells are possible ... especially east

    of the higher terrain during the evening hours where a bit of sely

    low level inflow should enhance shear. large hail is the most

    likely severe threat with this activity.

    farther south ... lee trough will sharpen from ern wy into ern co in

    response to approaching upper trough. convergence across the high

    plains should prove adequate in generating scattered supercells by

    early evening. substantial veering through a deep layer suggests

    any storms that form will move slowly esewd. instability is not

    expected to be particularly strong across the high plains during the

    day1 period ... roughly 1000 j/kg ... but more than enough to warrant a

    risk for at least hail.

    • Settled, dry spell continues as daytime temperatures edge up a degree or so

      The risk of frost continues and it is chilly out of the sunshine but the fine, dry spell continues this week as the temperatures creep up, closer to average rather than below as they have been. Read the full update here

      Cold waves hitting Europe continue to threaten growers, is there a link to climate change?

      Much of Europe, not just the UK, has experienced unseasonably cold weather since the Easter Weekend. A plunge of cold arctic air brought by northerly winds early last week brought several nights of frost and even snow across large swathes of Europe, followed by another wave of cold arctic air spreads across much of Europe this week. The frosts causing damage to new growth in vineyards and orchardsa0spurred on by a late March heatwave, the vineyards of France werea0particularly badly affected.
