I think Sunday is the sleeper day. The GFS, which has been underestimating instability all year long, is painting a nice window in Nebraska and Kansas. The only caveat is the inhibition. I believe that the western edge of the cap might break and though the shear won't be nearly as good as the next day, we could still get some explosive, rotating updrafts. Hail, isolated tornadoes look like a plausible threat. The SPC isn't even talking about this day but I'll definitely be keeping my eyes on it.
Looks like I'll be heading out for both days. Still trying to get everything coordinated at this point, but if anyone is looking to get out, don't be a stranger!
Also ... looking like there might be some thunderstorms in the forecast for Western Montana on Saturday!
