Wow was yesterday unexpected. Noticed the little confluence zone where the outflow boundary intersected the dryline at the sfc cyclone. After mulling our options (and checking the 17Z LMN sounding) we rolled out for Blackwell around 4:45. For the first time this year, we timed it perfectly where initiation coincided with when we arrived, and we had a developing supercell undergoing a cell merger just across the state line in Kansas to our north near Arkansas City.

Hey guys, I was out near Omaha yesterday chasing what I thought could have possibly been a somewhat promising setup. Obviously I was wrong. But I have a few questions.

First, I saw a few folks post up regarding the fact that it was a cold front setup, and that they had no interest in chasing it. Why is this? I know that cold fronts are faster movers than the rest of the boundaries, and that they seem more aggressive in triggering lift/convection. I would imagine you'd want this... [Read More]
