Severe Storm Set-Up

March 28, 2008

The pattern during the next week will be a “progressive” one. In meteorological terms, this means a quick change scenario as a fast-moving jet stream causes storm systems to progress west to east across the country.

The map shows the general set-up expected for Sunday-Monday. The cool air will be gone as a warm front sweeps through Texoma during the day Sunday. The warm, moisture-laden air mass will begin to interact with a surface cold front and upper trough during the afternoon and evening Sunday…and strong to severe storms may develop. A more widespread heavy rain/severe event is possible with the main frontal arrival Monday afternoon/evening.

Cooler, quieter weather Tuesday won’t last long: another fairly strong system quickly makes for unsettled weather to return by the middle of the week.

Take Care,

Steve LaNore

Chief Meteorologist

    Hey Steve! Sunday and Monday sure does look like a good chance for a Severe Weather episode to take place across the southern plains. The team and myself are headed to Woodward OK in the morning 03/30/08 to set up near the triple point/dryline. Shear in the lower levels based off of the latest model runs and hodographs show good probabilty for a few tornadoes across that area Sunday evening and especially Sunday night and all day Monday when the LLJ strengthens and the ejection of the upper level disturbance. Monday looks like it could be a major severe/ tornado episode. We will be out chasing both days. Helicity values along with the instability that will be available will be supportive of long track supercells/tornadoes. Model runs have been very consistant with Sunday night/ Mondays pattern.. Thanks for the blog! Take Care
