I know I'm a novice at this stuff so bear with me. A lead shortwave looks to swing around the approaching larger upper level trough now over the western US. Dewpoints progged to be in the mid 50s with strong southeasterly winds beneath southwesterly upper flow (although fairly weak). Cape of 2,000 to 3,000 j/kg are forecast. Orographic/upslope lifting could be the magic that seems to light up the high plains along the Palmer divide from Colorado Springs towards Limon and northeast from there. NWS Denver office mentions possibility of a tornado in the HWO At this point, I'm desperate, so I'll be heading out just for the first really good prospect of big puffy towers in my area this season.
