We’ve departed Pratt, where we stayed last night. We’re currently on the road north — not quite sure where we are headed yet but we’ll probably try to position near the triple point for now and wait out the morning rain/storms in the area (mainly south and east, but we’re in the clouds and some rain will come through). Maybe not what you look for, but it’s early enough the atmosphere should recover, and some folks like Mike Smith have talked about tornadoes following morning rain.
I’m going to keep this short for now as things are somewhat up in the air, but generally on track for big storms and tornadoes later. I did a quick writeup for Capital Weather Gang this morning on the threat and chase as a whole. There has been some concern because the initial moderate risk from the Storm Prediction Center has been dropped back to a slight risk. However, much of their mod risk was hail related and the new tornado probabilities are not much different than before.
