squall line to track today


to our west near the St.Louis area is another case of very little CAPE and high LI values will signal little to instability yet the amount of shear in place is sufficient for the development of severe and tornadic storms along a squall line. It continues to surprise me how some forecasters fall for this case again and again going for no severe weather just based on little instability. This squall line has a zone of high shear values and marginal instability ahead of it today to keep it going. By this evening this squall line should close in on western Kentucky.

Southern Mississippi Valley sector loop


this has already come and east in recent days so we’ll see how the line evolves today.
