Remember that niche. Remember what got you here. It's easy to lose focus when times are slow. When the weather is wild it makes it all worth it. Patience.
Storm event coming to an end. Satisfying chase, generally feel like I accomplished what I set out to do. Everything mostly went the way it was supposed to. Tomorrow will wrap up the footage into a video. Nothing amazing. Migraine all day today, need to sleep it off. Talk to you soon.
Development taking place now. Interesting evolution with cluster coming southeast out of Minneapolis region. New development near La Crosse as expected. How exactly these pieces come together is uncertain/ interesting...but it does central WI will almost certainly see a severe storm this evening.
4500 SBCAPE in central Wisconsin at 3PM. Source of energy for evening storms.
Not shooting for initiation with this event.
Will move late in the event when location is clear.
Otherwise you spend all day/night driving for little gain.
Especially when the forecast path/corridor is your backyard.
I'll be chasing Tuesday night. Could be live streaming from the office during the afternoon. On the hunt during the evening. These nighttime complex events are not great for chasing. Goals are simple this time: lightning, lightning illuminated structure, and a live stream opportunity. Shouldn't have to travel too far from KOSH.
Isolated/scattered showers and storms working through today. A strong t-storm not out of the question but concern remains low. Severe storm west of Hinckley, MN has weakened.
10:15AM - cell coming out of MN looks like trouble. No warnings yet. Additional development possible. Overall severe threat low. It might just be this one storm that does something.
MONDAY - Scattered thunderstorms likely across northern WI Monday during the day (better chances afternoon). Isolated chance of a rain shower or storm in the south based on latest data. A strong t-storm or two is possible supported by the SPC Day 2 Outlook. I'll let you know if anything changes.
