5/14 - 11am CDT - West Texas

After a night in Fort Stockton, Texas, we're heading to the western edge of Texas near the New Mexico border south of Lubbock. An area of low pressure in New Mexico is pulling in east winds near the southeast corner of that state and well into Texas as well. High dewpoints, bulk shear above 40 kt, and CAPE values above 4000 J/kg will help to set off some supercells this afternoon. This is certainly a better scenario than yesterday's chase conditions, so we'll see what we can find!

As always, we'll be streaming LIVE video at when things get going this afternoon. You can also follow me on Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates and live streaming notifications.
