Currently in Louisville waiting to see if some new development to the west will roll through and provide more lightning ops.

Currently stopped for the night east of STL. Target tomorrow will still depend on morning data. For now, here is a new vantage point of Louisville I found:

Westbound on I-64 in May again - this time not for the Plains, but for a potent midwestern severe weather event slated for tomorrow. A setup like this within my 'home chase area' is always welcome - as I should be able to make it home at the end of the day. Shear profiles and instability are supportive of supercells mainly across Illinois tomorrow afternoon, but I'm eyeing central and southern Indiana as well - particularly if ongoing convection ruins the better target into IL/MO. The plan tonight is to camp out near Evansville, and refine the target in the morning pending a review of data. I pondered leaving early Wednesday morning, but decided to leave this afternoon to make tomorrow's day a little easier. That means I'm also able to enjoy the leisurely drive westward through Bluegrass country today.

Love No 2 Nice thinking !!
