5/16 - 10:30am CDT - SE New Mexico

We're on our way to the southeast corner of New Mexico to see what kind of storms develop down there this afternoon. We're not terribly optimistic about today's setup because of weak surface winds and an ongoing MCS (mesoscale convective system - line of storms) this morning on the Texas/Mexico border. Redeeming qualities of today's setup are good instability, decent shear, and ample moisture. The increased elevation should provide a little bit of lift out there, but we're not seeing the push of dry air from the west that we need. In any case, we'll see how it goes today.

We'll be streaming LIVE video at if storms form today. You can follow me on Twitter and Facebook as well to get the latest updates on our chase and video streaming.
