Thank you.

Cell over NW Colorado is severe warned. Looks like it's got some structure on radar but it's hard to tell since it is on the perimeter of all the surrounding stations.

Anyone up for a tail-end charlie? I mean tail-end somewhere in the vicinity south of Fort Stockton, TX? Great inflow it seems on that badboy, probably gonna start spitting baseballs like all great SW TX monsters...ahh memories, poor old windshield. C Kansas is about to blow up as well. Have fun and I'll be back! (from the UK in July)
 
Could the dry punch be anymore text book in KS? It's clearly visible on radar now (dust, birds, etc) and now a cell is going up in Trego County, KS

Looks like things are breaking out all over the places!! Happy Chasing!! LJK.
 
Forgot about my NE cell for awhile but structure is still looking good on radar. Hook is just about to move over the western end of Lake McConaughy.

Still moving NE and has slowed to 20mph.

This is about the intersection of Keith, Garden, and Arthur counties in NE
 
TORN Warning in Arthur

TORN warning issued for Arthur County in NE. Looks like Bill's storm is really flying now. :lol: LJK.

Updated: And that storm cell has taken that classic "right-hand" turn, meaning its getting tornadic. There's a nice hook and a inflow notch in the storm on radar. This storm has already been TORN warned. 8) LJK.

Just checked it out, and I have to agree its very well defined...

Maybe the dry punch isn't that textbook, afterall, the storms are going up to the north of it. The apex of the punch is right over Dodge City right now.
 
Radar showing initiation near Dodge City

Check the radar and try to see thru the ground clutter around Dodge City, there's about three storm cells firing up mainly to the east and southeast of there!! 8) LJK.
 
There is something really weird with the radar indicated DL north of Dodge – notice how it shoots off at 45 degrees into the rear of the cell – very strange indeed.

BTW I would not give up on the nose of the bulge over dodge just yet…
 
Things are quite interesting over the Dodge City region. If you look closely at the loops, you can notice what looks to be small scale rotation within certain areas of the dryline...Probably where it locally bulges out and then recedes, giving the illusions of rotation.

Looking at the VIS, have to agree with Stuart that Dodge City region is not out of the woods by any means, at least thats how it looks now :eek:

That dryline punch over DDC currently reminds me so much of the one we were beneath on May 12 in Woodward, OK.....I'd like to be west of Salina right now, just south of I-70......just waiting for my storm to come to me.
 
I thought someone might mention that.....hadn't looked at any temp data and was just shooting in the dark on what I hoped would be a homerun call, LOL.
