Welcome Kansas. Welcome to Nebraska. Welcome to South Dakota?




No.

(that was not as painful to write as I thought...after an extended period of mourning...).

After a long ferry from Edmond, OK to Colby, KS on Thursday (?), late (tornado-less) operations near Scottsbluff, NE on Friday (most groups did not make it to the hotel until 130 AM or so), Vortex2 decided that Saturday was a down day.

By all accounts, the weather set-up yesterday had its deficiencies...there was not a definitive region where good shear (wind profiles that favor rotating thunderstorms) and good CAPE (Convective Available Potential Energy; the energy needed to fuel vigorous thunderstorms) overlapped. Convective initiation was questionable...

In meteorological lingo, it would take a "mesoscale accident" for conditions to be favorable for supercells.

As we all know, accidents (frequently) happen...and we did cry over our spilled milk....(I am colloquialism-ed out or is it aphorism-ed?)

Picture 1: Another postcard from the back of DOW7 (a coffee table book is in the works). "Greetings from Scottsbluff, NE!"

We did get a chance to review our data...(the silver lining--one more!)
The left side of these images show precipitation (reflectivity; pinker colors = more precipitation) and the right side shows Doppler velocity (cool colors indicate motion towards the radar and warm colors indicate motion away from the radar)

Picture 2: This is data from DOW(?) on 12 May 2010 showing a weak tornado near Clinton, OK.

Picture 3: More data from DOW(?) showing a BWER (bound weak echo region, of course!) on 12 May 2010. The BWER is a precipitation-free hole, indicating a strong updraft.

  5. I've been surfing online more than three hours lately, but I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty price sufficient for me.

    Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent
    content as you probably did, the net can be a lot more useful than ever before.

  10. I almost never leave a response, however i did a few searching and
    wound up here "Welcome Kansas. Welcome to Nebraska. Welcome to South Dakota?".
    And I actually do have some questions for you
    if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it seem like some of these responses appear as if they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  11. What i don't understood is actually how you're no longer actually much more well-favored than you may
    be now. You are so intelligent. You already know therefore considerably in terms of this matter, produced me personally believe it
    from numerous varied angles. Its like men and women are
    not interested unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga!
    Your own stuffs great. All the time deal with it up!
