TRAVEL None
Tomorrow (23 May), I fly to Oklahoma City to meet my fellow chasers.  More about them tomorrow night.

This chase will run from 24 May to 31 May, with my return flight on 01 June.

Looking ahead to the week, TWC's daily planner only (so far) show one day with widespread t-storms, bounded by two 'so-so' days of scattered storms.  Stephen will have his work cut out for him, as these maps show:
 

NOTE: TWC's Weekly Planner maps only cover a seven-day span. The l0-day forecast maps (at left) are used to fill in the 5/30, 5/31 map series.

These long-range forecasts often change (and I hope to see stormier weather than predicts. Selfish, eh?)

OBSERVATIONS
Yesterday was an active day for The Alley:

Lower Michigan got hit today, with tornadoes damaging homes, tossing cars about, etc.  Tomorrow, the Del-Mar-Va area looks like a likely target.  The Alley looks barren: no big storms predicted. This is based on the forecasts for majors cities, which are widely scattered in the country's midsection. Now, between the cities can be another matter.  Even when Chicago just gets lots of rain, only an hour to our south can be major rumblers at the same time.
 

ACCOMODATIONS were not required.
RESTAURANTS not used.
