Tour 3 - Build Up & Outlook

Recommended Posts

Finally started to seriously look at the prospects for tour 3, for which I'll be out on. Next Saturday, day before 1st proper chase day, looks like a cold front will sink S/SE into the central/southern Plains as a shortwave trough moves east over the mid-west, not much upper support though.

Sunday, again, looks like a cold front play across Oklahoma, not a great deal of upper support:

The shortwave trough moves on east by Monday, then it looks ridgy for a few days ahead of another trough arriving Pacific coast:

But 00z GFS operational and ensemble brings that Pac coast trough slowly inland during the week, so severe weather picking up again (hopefully!) over the central/northern high Plains:

Looking at the weather for the start of T3, 28C and humid in DFW Friday and Saturday for those landing those days before the tour starts on Sunday. Cold front looks to sink south and SE from the central/central high Plains towards northern Texas on Saturday as a shortwave moves east into the mid-west, so could see a line of storms/MCS moving S and SE over DFW later on Saturday.

Sunday, looks like there could be some play over eastern New Mexico for day 1 as we see a return moist flow here in wake of the cold front stalling over Texas:

Thereafter, drying up over the southern Plains early next week, as we see a ridge build over SW deserts, which will be a relief for those flooded in recent days in TX and OK.Weak zonal flow for much next week across CONUS, flow looks like strengthening over NW and northern US states during the week, as shortwaves move east  from the Pacific coast over NW USA, so we could be looking at chasing in the northern/northen high Plains such as Wyoming, Montana, Dakotas - with the risk perhaps pushing south into Colorado/Nebraska too, though this could change nearer the time.

Dave is a great asset to the tour he is the ONLY member of the team, that has a copy of "Dummies Guide to Storm Chasing" in the glovebox ready and finger marked at various "How do I" pages. He's great with cables so if you are into a slight bit of the ol' massage by twilight and cable, he's your man. :oops:

PS, you'll know when he is angry he suddenly grows to 5' 2" tall :hi:

See...here I am trying to get chat going for all the T3 guests, trying to be nice, trying to be friendly and you put me down.

 

Happy to be Dog House, won't have to deal with Paul moaning about the rain, sun, wind, hail, temperature, dew point..and how Arron keeps rejecting his advances every night.

DJ, I think Paul's sore as he's suffering foot rot from all the rain!

I've got the hairdryer issue covered this time, I brought my own, given I had to go 3 hotels in a row without one 2 years ago.  Not a good scenario for a girl.

 

Although I'm sure you guys are meaning something else in your ribbing of Mr Vicary  :sorry:

 

I arrived in Dallas this afternoon.  Hotel has put on a party with free bbq and live music :)

Hi Jonathan

The guys are currently at the best western in Irving.

The hotel usually have a free bus which will take you to the airport. Changeover time is usually 12pm but get there about 11:30 in case the leave sooner! Meet them at the car rental village. Look out for Bruce Forsythe!

Gee

Good luck Tour 3

You might have to take a long trek North as the primary risk for the next three days exists on the high plains of MT and the Dakotas
