May 29th thoughts
Hello. A quick post as we're about to leave Salina. We're heading south-west towards the Dodge City area although will evaluate en route. A moderate risk of severe thunderstorms is in place today with some impressive parameters likely to develop through the day. Strong instability and shear will juxtapose across a wide area today and storms will likely become supercells quickly. Any supercell poses the risk of very large hail, along with a wind and tornado threat. The highest chance of tornadoes may be this evening as the low-level jet starts to pick up, especially across parts of SW and S Cent Kansas, and adjacent parts of Oklahoma. There is the risk of a strong tornado.
