Sunday 2/27/11 Severe Weather Threat (Overview by Mike Brady)

by on Feb.26, 2011, under Forcasts

Personal Setup Score 7/10

Sunday is starting to look like it may be the first promising setup of the year so far. That being said the Storm Prediction Center has gone ahead and issued a slight risk.


Sufficient Cape

Good Temps

Decent Shear

Nice Hodographs


Strong cap for this time of year

At 0Z, surface temperatures are cooling,  this could mean more instability and less inhibition than during the peak heating hours.


The Ideal chase terrain is across Ks/Ne/Ok/Tx on the flat plains free of trees and hills

Time of Year

As it is still only late February the sunsets early in the evening giving less light for ideal chasing. Chasing after dark can be dangerous hand half hazard if done in areas you don’t know and if you are new to chasing. For this reason I do not suggest new chasers chase after dark and or in the trees.
