5/29/22 Storm Chase: Enhanced Risk

The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has issued a Enhanced Risk for the Northern High plains today.

Associated with the Enhanced Risk is a 10% Tornado Threat Ring.

To summarize the SPC: A long cold front that stretches from the Dakotas through central Nebraska and into southeastern Colorado will stall. Ahead of the cold front, there will be moderate instability and moisture, as southeasterly flow continues to pump Gulf of Mexico moisture into the threat area. The SPC specifically mentions “a few tornadoes”, “baseball sized hail” as well as a wind threat.

The visible satellite imagery shows broken clouds over the threat area.

We had a filming event this morning in Grand Island. I didn’t finish writing this post. We are currently sitting at the corner of NE 70 and US 281 just north of Bartlett, NE, waiting for initiation.
