Wow! Talk about an unexpected turn of events. An opportunity has come up that will allow for a nearly certain observing expedition to the Great Plains starting Tuesday. I'll explain more in the coming days. The trip does hinge on the good observing pattern that is forecast by the models actually coming to pass in some form. If the models are off and the western trough / cutoff low totally tanks, the plans may change. If not, then I'll be on my way westbound heading for a starting point of Amarillo, Texas on Wednesday.

Based on the current outlook, this probability table charts the chance of our trip starting on a particular date:

2008 Weather Expedition - Departure Date Probability as of May 17
May 19-3095%
May 26-June 154%

Thanks! I won't be in my own vehicle and won't have a laptop desk with me this time (I'll be in a convoy and won't need to be monitoring data), so I'm not sure how feasible running the laptop and live camera will be. I'll see what I can do though, it would be nice to have it running.
