Today was basically a positioning day for later in the week. Rather than get everybody exhausted from the start, we save our energy and moved a modest couple hundred miles to north central Kansas.
Looking at the SPC forecasts, we saw that Days 1-3 (14-16 May) would be slow, except for far-flung MARGINAL risks. Days 4-8 look highly favorable for storms.
13:30 – Reviewed the SPC forecasts for Friday to Monday (17-20 May). Apparently we have some exciting weather ahead!
Despite low expectations for the days, we did catch a few severe thunderstorms, including one the put out 1-inch (2.5cm) hail for a while.
