Tough Pattern

* Negligible flow aloft has made it hard to pinpoint where storms are going to fire. We targeted roughly the Childress, TX area today and storms tried to develop in an unstable environment. However, a shortwave that kicked off storms in western OK late this morning left our area under the influence of Negative Vorticity Advection and subsidence which squashed the storms in our area in a hurry - negating the decent set up in the low levels.

* After a dinner at the Bobcat Deli and a couple of presentations this evening, we called it a night in Childress before trying it again tomorrow. Early indications are showing the best chase area in the south OK/north TX area near roughly Gainesville TX, but we'll have a better handle on it in the morning.
