Day 4: High Risk Chase Day

According to the newest Storm Prediction Center convective outlook, there is a high risk of severe weather today and a 30% chance of significant tornadoes.  Here are the maps:

It should be a very interesting day.  Right now it's cloudy and rainy.  For severe storms to fire up, we need the rain to stop and the clouds to clear up so we get some day time heating.  This will help the development of the severe weather.  Going to eat and do a briefing this morning on the day's plans such as target areas.  We also need to hook up all the equipment in the van.  I apologize for the fact that we won't have a direct online internet live feed... However, since today is going to be so active, tune into The Weather Network in the afternoon/evening hours as they will be streaming live video from our chase (if all goes well!).  And yes, family, we will be as safe as possible.  The people we're chasing with have been doing this for many years and are more than experienced in this area.  Needless to say, this is not the first high risk day they've seen.

You would not BELIEVE how much buzz there is in the studio right now!...

Mark live on the phone, Martin tracking the storms, producers, writers, managers running around like it's August 20th again!

I'm sure it's 100x as fun where you are, but there would be a lot to keep you entertained in the TWN studios today too!

As one of those "family members" you mentioned, I'm glad you will be doing your best to stay safe. Can't wait to hear all about today's activity
