...SOUTHERN PLAINS INTO LOWER MS VALLEY...

UPPER LOW WHICH HAS PERSISTED OVER THE WESTERN STATES FOR THE LAST

VALUES. SEVERE STORMS CAPABLE OF LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS ARE

EXPECTED OVER SOUTHWEST OK AND PARTS OF WEST TX THIS AFTERNOON AND

EVENING. IF OUTFLOW BOUNDARY FROM MORNING CONVECTION CAN MAINTAIN

ITS IDENTITY THROUGH THE AFTERNOON...BACKED LOW LEVEL FLOW ALONG AND

FOR SUPERCELLS AND POSSIBLY A TORNADO.

AIRMASS. MULTICELL STORMS CAPABLE OF LOCALLY DAMAGING WINDS AND

HAIL WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH EARLY EVENING AS FAR EAST AS WESTERN

Models were pointing to this for a little while. I posted about another big Iowa event possible earlier in the week, but the whoel thing has speeded up a bit from the models I was looking at. It was tomorrow which I'd originally though would be the big day! (It may still be). I wonder if the team are even awake right now... no discussion thread from them yet. Hope they just slept in and are too busy hauling ass towards Nebraska right now.

Paul & the team set off from Okarche last night about 6.30pm they were due to arrive in Concordia , Kansas about 12.00 midnight. Their target area is N/E Nebrask. They have Dave Ewoldt, Gavin & Lorraine with them Plus Chris from the ITV. Lucky lot. I am setting off shortly for Dodge City it is a small chance of seeing something today. I fly home in the morning so did not head north with them
