Chase forecast update for April 25 - May 7
No major changes have been noted in model forecasts for the upcoming system, which boosts my confidence closer to certainty in a Great Plains expedition departure happening on Friday. Saturday and Sunday both look like excellent expedition days in the Plains, but dangerous days for local residents. Of course as expeditioners, we hope for the amazing sights to happen over open fields.
Sunday's tornado risk may make an incursion into the St. Louis metro area late. That will lead me to bias my target that day in favor of making it back here in time for such a possibility. As the models show, the tornado risk will be present Monday-Wednesday in the St. Louis area, with Monday's event the biggest of the group.
Regardless of if you are in the Plains states or in the Midwest, this system is one to pay close attention to. Have your plan of action ready in advance, and stay up-to-date on watches and warnings. Your local TV station and NOAA weather radio are the best ways to stay informed leading up to and during an event.
The following table charts the probability of a Great Plains weather expedition happening for several indicated date ranges in the near future:
