Storm Chase #2: Waiting Game

Posted in Storm Chasing at 3:13 pm by Rebekah

Well, I decided to chase today after all. I had my eye on tomorrow more, but in the end couldn’t resist the opportunity to go for an in-state chase.

Currently we’re just northeast of Enid, and headed  for Enid and possibly points south of there. There is already a decent cumulus field forming in southwest Oklahoma, but I’m still tempted by the northern Oklahoma target.

A stationary front near the Kansas / Oklahoma border could provide a greater chance for lift and low-level shear for supercells, but of course the instability is higher and cap is more likely to break in southwest Oklahoma.
