Virtual Chasing Thread - Spring 2017

Yeah I think thats what I remember Kelley for best is that even during the smallest of events or non-severe weather like snow etc, he was always out on the road and thus we'll have a gap in coverage now.

Yes very sad news, goes to show there is more risk of being injured in a road traffic accident than by from the storms themselves.

Unfortunately it looks like a mis-judgement by whoever was driving by overshooting the junction at speed, perhaps because they were distracted. On big chase days 100s of chasers converging on one storm can increase the danger on the roads too, especially when chasers get out the car to take photos. But I don't think huge numbers on the roads was the case yesterday in that area where the accident occured.

It's the poor lad Corbin Jaeger I really feel sorry for. Taken out by someone else's distracted, possibly negligent driving. He was only 25 :(

If what has been said so far is true (he went through several stop signs at speed), then it's no exaggeration to say that Kelley would have been facing a jail sentence if he had survived. A totally avoidable incident that has tragically resulted in three needless deaths.

Sun 2nd Apr: Leesville to DeRidder, LA on the 27 for me.

Some dps typical of this raised early season situation, and critically up to 400 SRH. Large discrete supercells possible in the warm sector.

Portions of the current MDT risk area bring primed for upgrade to HIGH risk next hour as it appears models have underestimated the PWT influx (dry bias).

A long night to come for Dixie Alley.

Nope a massive bust luckily the surface/lower level winds were weaker and veered more than forecast.

 19th April: Initiation imminent in a narrow zone of SW NE just below the warm front shown on mesoanalysis in next few hours. Quite impressive directional shear in that area actually according to RAP.

The season keeps producing - will it continue into May?
