Spring Break 2011

GFS 200-300 hrs out is always quite the teaser as far as a good possible first Colorado/Kansas March setup....keeping a very close eye on the week of March 12-19th.
I should expect to be out and about chasing the last of Winter season!
Forecast models appear to show the trend of sinodual upper level jet developing surface Low Pressure Systems in the NE Mexico, SE Colorado, & panhandles of TX & OK, which is typical seasonally. Till than will follow up....

Tis the 2011 Season....

My lack of blogging is part due to making this a place to document full events, chases and forecasts for 2011. Another is due to other opportunities opening up in my life with video production. Now, did I just write an entry that says I'm not chasing. NO WAY! I just won't be chasing solo on long endevours, and if I am to be chasing this season it will be with others interested in wanting to go out and experience storm chasing. I look forward to taking my friends, and being with my friends this year during this 2011 Severe Weather Season!
I have a lot of my pics on my facebook weather page. Usually there are a few images here and there, specially during the snow till than I look forward to blogging with you this chase season.
