Chasecation 2017, Day 2: Just trying to not bust

Today we ventured into Kansas to see if we could find the least mundane storm of the day. In that venture, we were semi-successful.

Instead of the northeast Kansas/western Missouri play that produced multiple rounds of okay-looking thunderstorms, we dropped into south-central Kansas to find a smaller cluster of okay-looking thunderstorms. Storm of the day? No. Was it that much worse? Nah.

Today was a good practice day. We now remember all of the general rules that we follow on our regular chase days, and today was a good reminder why we follow those rules, as not following them took us away from the best storms.

Our storm did have a small hail core and did get severe-warned, but overall it was pretty meh for the Plains. We’re going to study up on tomorrow’s setup and get after some real storms.

    Do you think OK is going to be getting some tornadic weather in the coming days?
