Here is the significant tornado parameter (an objective, model-based forecast) valid at 5pm given that a strong thunderstorm is in the area. If you are in the gold area south of U.S. 50 in Kansas south through Oklahoma and into north central Texas, pay attention to the weather this afternoon and evening!
With regard to my storm chase, I continue to like my initial target (see below):
Farther south, the NWS Storm Prediction Center says there is a 80% chance they will issue a tornado watch for southwest Oklahoma into Texas.
So, conditions continue to be favorable for tornadoes in the region.
