Looks like there is a few days with chase potential starting this Saturday, so time to dust off the blog again. I’m tired and I have to get up early to go to Ottawa, Kansas tomorrow, so I’m going to just skim over the potential chase days coming up.
Saturday is showing some fairly decent tornado potential in southern Canada and northeast North Dakota. The GFS wants to keep precip to a minimum in North Dakota with the latest runs due to a cap. Still a long ways out so I’m not too worried about it at this point. If it did end up looking really iffy this side of the border I’d have a really hard time pulling the trigger. A blue sky bust at the Canadian border would suck something fierce. I could always cross the border I guess, but the best parameters appear to be along and south of the border where capping is more of a concern. I’m keeping an eye on it though. I’ve actually bagged tornadoes in North Dakota and Minnesota before, so it wouldn’t be my first time in either state. I have chased up there in years so I’d like to go back, but I’m not going unless I’m pretty damn confident there’s a solid tornado threat.
On Sunday there may be some action in the northern plains again, but it’s not looking as good as Saturday. On Monday I’m focused back on the central plains and potentially chasing central Kansas. And again on Tuesday there may be some potential in Kansas. Long ways out so I’ll get into it over the next couple days when I have more time. Chase season is winding down and this years sucked balls so it’s time to take what you can get. I’m going to have a hair trigger on all of these days just for that reason. I’ll try to update tomorrow night so check back then if you’re interested.
