Initial discrete storm development in southwestern Kansas is occurring on the SW flank of ongoing convection, along a boundary/wind shift. To the south, agitated cumulus field is noted along a SSW-NNE axis. Low-level shear is maximized where the boundaries intersect.

Three storm chase targets today along with possible limiting factors: Southern High Plains - Somewhat veered/relatively weak low-level jet. S-central Kansas - Convective evolution/longevity of discrete modes. SW Texas - Weak mid-level winds and boundary layer T/Td spreads.

No funnel. Had some scuddy appendages before that were lookalikes.

Yesterday’s storm chase featured a few supercells that developed within a large CAPE/marginal shear environment in the Southwest Texas vicinity.

The MCS probably stays north/northeast of Oklahoma City itself, but the southwestern flank may come close, if storm movement takes enough of a right deviation overnight.

Mesoscale convective system (MCS) moving east/southeast across Kansas/northern Oklahoma. Given steep lapse rates aloft and a robust low-level jet, MCS should produce damaging winds and some hail for several hours, eventually approaching I-44 from OKC-Tulsa-Joplin.

June is risky and almost certainly filled with down days if one chasecations then. I do feel like the MRGL days usually produce something over the High Plains, but if you don’t have at least modest flow over the Plains (most of the June 2019 so far) then it’s mostly meh chasing.
