Great Plains trip #1 is a go

There are still some issues with today's setup in the Great Plains, namely the likelihood of storms being entirely after dark. But moisture is turning out to be a little better than forecast, with the risk for significant tornadic supercells in Kansas after sunset. The cap is very strong though - and storms may not only fire very late, but may struggle when they do. Nonetheless, I felt that with the target being a relatively short 7-hour drive west, the setup is good enough to be there for. I departed last night at 11PM and am currently in Junction City after an overnight stop in Topeka, so Great Plains trip #1 is officially in progress.

Tomorrow also looks like a solid, maybe even better, tornado day in the Midwest, so I will be returning to Missouri/Illinois later tonight for that.

I'll update the blog when I can, but I will be making updates to Twitter/X and Youtube should I capture anything worth posting/reporting there.
