6/3 - 11:15am CDT - Heading North to Nebraska!

Today's severe weather setup takes us to North Platte, Nebraska, where we'll set up shop to wait for storms to form late in the afternoon. The SPC has issued a Slight Risk and a 5% tornado risk for Central Nebraska and South Dakota, which encompasses our target area. Instability and shear look pretty good today, so I think we may have a shot at seeing some good storms. The best news I've seen this morning is that the storms will be moving at 15-20 knots, which is perfect for chasing. We'll see how it goes today!

We'll be streaming LIVE video today at if we intercept some storms. You can also follow along with our chase by visiting my Twitter and Facebook pages.

Here's a great shot of Kevin Harned and me from yesterday that Steve Carey (a guide and driver on our tour) took as we were wrapping up the day and looking at data:
