11/07/2011 – Tornado Extravaganza in Southwest Oklahoma

Chasing Today!

[caption id=”attachment_4614″ align=”aligncenter” width=”550″ caption=”Tornado Risk for Today”][/caption]   [caption id=”attachment_4612″ align=”aligncenter” width=”550″ caption=”Hail Risk for Today”][/caption] Good morning, I just wanted to provide a brief update on today’s risk of severe weather and my chase plans before I headed to class. The first graphic shows the tornado risk from the Storm Prediction Center as of their 7 AM outlook. That is the chance of a tornado within 25 miles of a location. The second graphic is the probability of hail at least one inch in diameter within 25 miles of a location.  I’m still planning on leaving Dallas right after class, so I should be on the road by about 11:30 AM. My initial target is still Childress, TX and hopefully I’ll be there by about 4 PM. I’ll have my live stream up once I hit the road and I’ll try to do a video en-route to the target with much more information. Obviously this isn’t one of my normal blog posts, but I do have class shortly and I need to get the car ready to go. Have a good...
