Default Sunday May 29

From current SPC Day 3

...OH VALLEY THROUGH GREAT LAKES AND NERN STATES...

STORMS MAY DEVELOP IN VICINITY OF AND NORTH OF WARM FRONT AS WELL AS
IN A PORTION OF THE WARM SECTOR FROM THE GREAT LAKES INTO NRN
PORTION OF THE OH VALLEY AND NERN STATES EAST OF STRONGER CAP
ASSOCIATED WITH EML PLUME. VERTICAL SHEAR PROFILES WILL GRADUALLY
WEAKEN AS RIDGE BUILDS WITH MULTICELLS THE DOMINANT STORM MODE. THE
STRONGER STORMS COULD BECOME CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY STRONG
WIND GUSTS AND HAIL.

I'm down here on the Michigan border and I'm watching this one closely!

Code:
 ...OH VALLEY THROUGH GREAT LAKES AND NERN STATES...
   THE PORTION OF THE WARM FRONT EXTENDING ALONG SRN PORTIONS OF THE
   GREAT LAKES EARLY SUNDAY SHOULD REMAIN QUASI-STATIONARY INTO SUNDAY
   AFTERNOON...BEFORE LIFTING NWD SUNDAY NIGHT.  A FEW ELEVATED STORMS
   MAY BE IN PROGRESS NORTH OF THIS BOUNDARY AND COULD POSE A THREAT
   FOR HAIL.  WARM SECTOR SHOULD DESTABILIZE IN THE WAKE OF SUNDAY
   MORNING ACTIVITY...AS RICHER MOISTURE /SURFACE DEWPOINTS IN THE 60S/
   AND EML PLUME ADVECT NEWD DURING THE DAY. A SLOWLY BUILDING UPPER
   RIDGE AND INCREASING CONVECTIVE INHIBITION SUGGEST THE WARM SECTOR
   WILL BECOME INCREASINGLY HOSTILE TO SURFACE BASED STORMS...AND BEST
   CHANCE FOR STORM INITIATION WILL LIKELY REMAIN IN COOL SECTOR NORTH
   OF WARM FRONT.  HOWEVER...MODELS CONTINUE TO INDICATE SOME CONCERN
   THAT A WINDOW MAY EXIST FOR SURFACE BASED STORMS TO DEVELOP ALONG
   THE BOUNDARY BEFORE THE WARMER EML PLUME ARRIVES.  IF THIS OCCURS
   0-6 KM VERTICAL SHEAR FROM 35-40 KT AND MODERATE INSTABILITY WILL
   SUPPORT A THREAT FOR ORGANIZED STORMS INCLUDING SUPERCELLS INTO THE
   AFTERNOON.  THUS THIS OUTLOOK WILL MAINTAIN A SLIGHT RISK TO INCLUDE
   THE POSSIBILITY OF LARGE HAIL WITH ELEVATED STORMS AS WELL AS A
   SOMEWHAT CONDITIONAL THREAT OF SURFACE BASED STORMS.

I'm thinking of going out tomorrow if outlook stays good through morning so if anyone has any targets in mind or sees probability change for better or worse or is going out themselves post to this thread. I'll check back and if anything pops I'll post tomorrow what I'm seeing if I end up going....

This afternoons outlook from SPC. In graphics things look good for some sevelopment but in their text they don't sound so confident.

here is the text
...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM ERN SD EWD ACROSS PORTIONS
OF THE MIDWEST AND LOWER GREAT LAKES

...MID MO VALLEY EWD ACROSS THE MIDWEST...
MODELS ARE IN GOOD AGREEMENT IN DEPICTING AN AREA OF
THUNDERSTORMS...SOME SEVERE WITH LARGE HAIL...ACROSS ERN NEB/NRN
MO/IA AT THE START OF THE PERIOD...BEING FORCED MAINLY BY WARM
ADVECTION NEAR A RETREATING WARM FRONT. MID LEVEL FLOW IN EXCESS OF
40 KTS IS EXPECTED TO HELP STORMS MERGE INTO AN MCS. THIS SCENARIO
IS SUPPORTED BY HIGH RES MODELS AS WELL AS THE GFS...NAM...AND
ECMWF. THIS POTENTIAL MCS WILL BE MAINTAINED BY STRONG LOW LEVEL
WARM ADVECTION/VEERING PROFILES...FEEDING A MOIST AND STRONGLY
UNSTABLE AIR MASS NWD. INDICATIONS ARE A CONCENTRATED SWATCH OF
DAMAGING WINDS MAY OCCUR FROM ERN IA INTO NRN IL INCLUDING THE
CHICAGO AREA...AND PROCEEDING EWD ACROSS LOWER MI. ALTHOUGH STORM
MODE MAY DISRUPT SUPERCELL AND TORNADO POTENTIAL...AREAS OF ROTATION
MAY BE EMBEDDED WITHIN THE LINE. HIGH PRECIPITABLE WATER CONTENT
SHOULD FURTHER HELP TO ENHANCE PRECIP LOADING/DOWNDRAFT POTENTIAL.



Day 1 this afternoons oulook, hail prob, tornado prob and wind prob

So you're saying this was a BAD weekend to adopt a new, thunderstorm-untested dog?

(Well, I guess it meant I was staying up late anyways)
