    Some nice cumulus fields developing SW of the storm area over Nw NE/Sw SD, along what must be the dry line:

    post-1052-1181167560_thumb.png

    Looking at the radar, right now a good spot would be Alliance with the East Road to Hyannis and roads North of there to folow storms that develop on the SE side, though Paul and Tony are well to the East if they are headed to Broken Bow:

    post-1052-1181167726_thumb.png

    Be interesting to see how this develops Eastwards, will the cap break East of the dry-line in the next few hours for Paul and Tony to latch onto a storm with in distance?

    SW South Dakota really seeing some development on the NE side of the storm area moving NE, very messy though:

    Aye... Tiz a shame about GRlevel3.. I can't find the sodding dll it uses.. :drinks:

    Looks like a very well defined dry line now Nick. Let's hope things are going good over there and it doesn't all end up with HP stuff. That would be a real shame.

    Now that is one hell of a nasty looking storm system..

    I've paid for GrLevel 3 last year and I don't regret it. It's a nice tool for a not unreasonable one off purchase. I use it when watching some of the US motorsport events to predict when rain is going to arrive and play havoc with the races so it isn't completely useless outside of storm chasing :drinks:

    As for my decision to start in Kansas... it looks like things are really having a tough time going down there, but I havn't lost hope yet. There are some CU going up in NW Kansas. and I'd probably head in that direction on my virtual chase now. I think I'll stay in Kansas on the off cahcne of a storm popping whilst there is still some light and hope to get some structure shots through the dust... There should be some pretty nice sunsets with all of the dust blowing around also. Inititation may still occur before dark, although it will be a close thing. It looks a bit better up in the north Platte area for some more storms to start firing before darkness descends, so fingers crossed that this is the case and the team can get onto something :yahoo:

    I intend to buy it as soon as I can Nathan.. I was hoping to re-use just for this unexpected stint. What is it? about $75? Great time to buy at the moment too.. Brilliant bit of kit. :drinks:

    CU Field seems pretty good right now on the KS/CO/NE border area, and on the North Platte Radar, there appears to be a nice Outflow Boundary eastblishing itself SW-NE through the area, which is probably responsible. Hopefully, we'll get some initiation within the hour in this area

    It was about that I think. I bought GrLevel 3, although I'm rpetty tempted to splash out on GrLevel 2 now. The higher resolution just looks way too useful if I were to go out with it next year. Data might be an issue though. The Leevl 3 data stream I use is free and pretty reliable. I'm not sure if I'd have to pay monthly for a level2 data stream or not. I'll have to investigate :drinks:

    Yeah gonna get it too certainly is a fantastic bit of kit theres a website for users of gfx wx tools http://www.grlevelxstuff.com/ .

    Anyway hope Paul And Tony managed to get on those storms NW Nebraska now making there way into S/E South Dakota , Paul hasnt checked in at broken bow so maybe they've just kept driving. Nothing appearing to the south of these cells so its long haul or possible BUSTOLA CRAPOLLA..

    Sorry i think you may be right Nathan just checked radar images and there is definatley appearance of an outflow boundary and its increasing rapidly, i forget how quickly these monsters can grow...!!!!

    The Outflow Boundary has almost caught the Dryline now. Look for fireworks just west of Broken Bow in the next hour if these two interact the way they should

    MESOSCALE DISCUSSION 1029

    NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK

    0656 PM CDT WED JUN 06 2007

    AREAS AFFECTED...CNTRL NEB...CNTRL/ERN SD

    CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 353...

    VALID 062356Z - 070200Z

    THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 353 CONTINUES.

    LONG-LIVED SUPERCELL CONTINUES TO MOVE NEWD INTO CNTRL SD AND HAS

    DEVELOPED A LARGER SUB-SYNOPTIC CIRCULATION BASED ON PRE-STORM NLY

    WINDS AT KPHP. THIS CELL WILL LIKELY CONTINUE NEWD TOWARD THE KPIR

    VCNTY BY 0030-01Z. CELL EVOLUTION MAY TREND TOWARD LINEAR LATER IN

    THE EVENING AS THE TROPOSPHERIC FLOW REGIME BACKS TO SLY. IN

    FACT...CELLS DEVELOPING SOUTH ALONG THE TRAILING OUTFLOW BOUNDARY

    MAY BE THE TALE-TELL SIGNS OF THIS OCCURRING. STILL... RELATIVELY

    BACKED SFC FLOW MAY YIELD LOCALIZED CONDITIONS FOR AN ISOLD TORNADO.

    BUT...DMGG WINDS/HAIL WILL PROBABLY BECOME MORE OF AN ISSUE THROUGH

    THE EVENING OVER CNTRL AND PERHAPS NERN SD.

    FARTHER S...AN AREA FROM CNTRL NEB NEWD INTO SERN SD IS BEING

    MONITORED FOR PSBL TSTM INITIATION IN THE 00-02Z TIME FRAME. AN

    OUTFLOW BOUNDARY/DRYLINE COLLISION WILL TAKE PLACE WITHIN THE HOUR

    FROM NEAR KANW SWWD TO KLBF. CONSIDERABLE HIGH BASED CONVECTION HAS

    DEVELOP RECENTLY IN THE POST-DRYLINE BOUNDARY LAYER. ONCE THE

    COLLISION OCCURS...AND COOLING ALOFT SPREADS EWD...INHIBITION SHOULD

    ERODE SUFFICIENTLY FOR TSTMS TO DEVELOP INTO THE MOIST AXIS ACROSS

    CNTRL NEB...IN ACCORDANCE WITH RECENT GFS/SREF MODEL GUIDANCE.

    WHILE DEEP LAYER FLOW VECTORS WERE MOSTLY PARALLEL WITH THE DRYLINE

    FARTHER N...PROFILERS SHOW THAT THE VECTORS WERE MORE NORMAL AT

    LOCATIONS FARTHER S. THUS...THERE IS A HIGHER CONFIDENCE FOR MORE

    DISCRETE SUPERCELLS WITH POSSIBLE TORNADOES...DMGG WIND GUSTS AND

    HAIL.

    ACTIVITY SHOULD GRADUALLY DEVELOP NEWD INTO SERN SD...EITHER

    JOINING...OR REMAINING A SEPARATE ENTITY FROM THE ACTIVITY

    TRANSLATING NEWD INTO NERN SD LATER THIS EVENING.

    These new cells around North Platte are moving some lick, 45 knots (52mph)..!!

    Think it must be still a little breezy.. :drinks:

    Most certainly not Potty, the storms have grown from 8,000-9,000ft to 30,000+ft in about 10 minutes!!

    Just got in here from work (it is 6 pm PDT).

    The situation looks explosive to me, winds across Colorado are mixing down from the strong jet aloft, and reaching 70 mph gusts over many areas, this will pile into the dry-line feature soon and also, the surface low continues to deepen rapidly. As soon as these features get clear of the Black Hills, the downslope effect in the strong NW flow comes to an end and the real dynamics for severe weather kick in almost instantly. I expect this situation to be extremely harsh overnight with rapid development around an hour from now, that is 02z, lasting through the overnight. I hope the chasers stay fairly far south as soon as overnight action starts, or they could get stranded by road closures and debris on the wrong side of Thursday's action which is likely to be in eastern NE, se SD and western IA into sw MN as well as further east where I know they won't go because of time constraints.

    I would not be at all surprised if we have a repeat of the severity of Greensburg, just hoping it misses any sizeable town this time, but would not wish to be in central Nebraska tonight unless of course chasing storms. Ditto central SD, anywhere from about Pierre SD to Grand Island NE then further east is in line for tornadic development in the F3-5 range soon.

    Yup. Thats some pretty explosive development right there.

    There was nothing in Brown county worth speaking of 10 minutes ago and now it's 62dbz with tops to 47K ft. That's only 2 frames on Grlevel3 :drinks:

    Tornado probabilities have been increased in response to this development.

      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.
