Wow, these are some serious websites. I think I'm going to have to take a meteorology course just to understand all the acronyms lol.

hmm seems like a lot of the models are now backing off on timing which is good for us. Now appears storms may hold off till noon or later. That will allow for more heating and potential.

Areid, after I get my G2 this August, feel free to tag along behind my car on chases. Using Gr Level 3, just follow me on Spotter Network, or we could meet somewhere then you can follow us. Ill likely be chasing with davefootball123 most of the time as well.

Sounds like a plan man. The more the merrier. I was looking at Gr Level 3 earlier, looks pretty awesome. If I end up getting it I'll have to teach my gf to use it as well. It's a little hard to work a laptop and drive a big at big standard truck at the same time haha. I haven't really looked into what Spotter Network is yet. I'll plan on spending tomorrow on the road, so I may be PM'ing you guys periodically throughout the day for some advice.

Ive been watching this coming at me for a while now, and i can hear the thunder off in the distance, and the radar looks good, but when i look outside it looks like its petering out. BUT, just now as i'm typing this the wind has kicked up quite a bit, leaves flying off trees. I'm trying to make the hard choice to blast up towards fort erie to try and catch that end of the line, or run down to niagara on the lake and wait for the next little cell chasing behind.
