Storm Chase on Tuesday

Storm Chase on Tuesday

June 1, 2014 0 By Brian

Tuesday is looking like possibly the best storm chase day of the year, based on terrain and atmospheric conditions. As such, I will be in the field chasing. At the moment, I’m setting my initial target area as Kearney, Nebraska. Of course, that may change in the coming days as the forecast models get a better idea of the placement of the warm front on Tuesday.
