5/15 - 6pm MDT - New Mexico!
Storm Chasing Adventure Tours is in Carlsbad, New Mexico for the evening as we're still waiting for the severe weather threat to ramp up during the middle part of the week. We visited Roswell, New Mexico this afternoon and the associated alien museums and gift shops before heading to Carlsbad where we'll view the bats flying out of Carlsbad Caverns this evening near sunset.
Tomorrow should be another "touristy" day before we begin seriously looking at the risk for a severe weather event across much of Texas and Oklahoma on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. The latest models have moisture streaming back into the region nicely, but we're keeping a close eye on it. You can see the dewpoints rising near the Oklahoma/Texas border on the right-hand image from the GFS model. Should moisture return as advertised, things should shape up nicely for mid to late week. Three or more good days of chasing in a row? That sounds good to me!
