Chase Day Forecast May 21 (SE Wyoming/Nebraska Panhandle)

Filed under: Chase Forecasts/Outlooks,Storm Chasing — Mike U @ 10:25 am

Day 1 of 3 of weekend mini chase trip

I am in Ogallala, NE this morning.  My target all along was southeast Wyoming into the Nebraska Panhandle, and this still appears to be on track.  There are lower 50s dewpoints awaiting upstream of the Laramie Range, and the best low level flow by early this evening will be funneled up into the southeast Wyoming/Nebraska Panhandle area.  1500 J/kg CAPE is expected by early this evening.  I will head in the general direction of Torrington, WY by mid-afternoon and re-evaluate from there.

Day 2 (May 22):  Still looks good for southern South Dakota area into far northern Nebraska.  Not sure where I will stay tonight, as it depends on which portion of the Nebraska Panhandle I’ll end up in.

Day 3 (May 23):  I will be making my way back south closer to Dodge City since I have to work Monday morning.  There could be a potential play for supercell storms in Northwest Kansas as a weak front slips south into this area with still good upper level southwest flow and pretty high CAPE.
