I started by checking the NAM for tomorrow's chase. Ottawa to Emporia area seemed a good initial target. The NAM paints 2100 CAPE (SB parcel), a nice turning hodo with mild to decent wind speeds, and a very acceptable EHI of 3 to 4. Deep moisture is also present through 850 mb level and a cap that's breakable.

I'm wanting to start studying older storms and systems that have produced significant tornadoes. Is there a place to go to see what model data/actual data ppl had to look at leading up to the event?

I've been trying to find a thread somewhere about this but couldn't find it anywhere so here it goes. I've been looking at some GoPros, not too sure I want to be entering the "live streaming" realm just yet, but I had a few questions if any of you have any experiences with this please let me know:

1) As far as GoPro's recording with a laptop goes, is there a lag time? The last time I bought a cheap dash-cam (not GoPro) it lagged incredibly between the camera and the... [Read More]
