One week…

…and we will be on-location in the Great Plains.  Over the coming days our initial targets will become clearer, and we will choose our route west.  If it appears the southern plains will be the location of choice, we will roll west on I-40 through Nashville, Memphis, Little Rock and OKC.  If the central or northern northern plains look active, we will take the WV Turnpike and cross IN, IL, MO or IA.  Each route has its own flavor (and traffic headaches), either way our student crew will begin to analyze set-ups for severe storms over the coming days.

Lightning highlights a dramatic wall cloud near Union City OK in 2013.  This storm produced a tornado a short time later.
