1105 AM CDT SAT MAY 31 2008

AREAS AFFECTED...SRN WV...VA

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...TORNADO WATCH LIKELY

VALID 311605Z - 311700Z

CU FIELD IS EXPANDING RAPIDLY OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF SERN WV AND
WRN VA AS BOUNDARY LAYER WARMS AND DEEPENS. SHOWERS ARE BEGINNING
TO DEVELOP ACROSS MUCH OF THE CNTRL APPALACHIANS SOUTH OF TORNADO
WATCH 402 AND IT APPEARS THIS TREND WILL ONLY INTENSIFY OVER THE
NEXT FEW HOURS. LATEST WV IMAGERY CLEARLY DEPICTS THE EWD
ADVANCEMENT OF MID LEVEL TROUGH AND ASSOCIATED LARGE SCALE ASCENT
SPREADING ACROSS THIS REGION. THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD EVOLVE ACROSS
SRN WV/WRN VA OVER THE NEXT FEW HOURS...THEN SPREAD OFF THE HIGHER
TERRAIN WITHIN DEEP WLY FLOW. SHEAR PROFILES ARE MORE THAN
SUPPORTIVE OF SUPERCELL GENERATION/MAINTENANCE WITHIN INCREASINGLY
BUOYANT AIRMASS. DAMAGING WINDS...ISOLATED TORNADOES AND LARGE HAIL
MAY BE OBSERVED WITH STRONGEST ACTIVITY.

Do something safer, Mikey. Golf. Or call me, baby. I'm stormy.

You chasing?

I went out and came home around 6pm EST. The storms stayed farther north than i thought they would today, and the visibility was kinda hazy. Looks like the clean air spring chases are behind me. Bring on the humidity, haze and dew points in the 70's. Oh well...

Looks like you spoke too soon, Mikey... don't look now, but guess who's got a moderate risk?! Weather hog.

Storm Chasing Mikey said...

I know, and I can't chase at all today. Guess I'll be a backyard chaser unless this comes thru after 6pm.
