day1otlk_1630 Jordan and I will be chasing locally later today. We are going to target extreme Southeast Kansas and Northeast Oklahoma. The RPM / HRRR fire very isolated storms around 23z (6pm CDT) right around the KS, OK, MO tri-state border. 1ref_t5sfc_f09 Right now we have a decent cu field across the area ahead of slow moving cold front associated with a surface low near Stillwater, OK. Surface dewpoint temperatures are in the mid 60’s across the warm sector and MLCAPE values of 2000 j/kg are some of the enhancing factors. Some of the negative factors for today’s event are low values of ESRH and Southwest surface winds. Since we are basically at the target it might be a while until be start streaming will let everyone know with updated posts on and Twitter @thestormpatrol
