The models just haven't resolved anything worth chasing. The distance involved trumps any desire to see what develops. If it was local (meaning the EaTexPan or WeOk), yeah, I'd probably head out and have fun, but a 500 mile drive... no way José! Even the cold core in Kansas just isn't enough to bite on. With that said, I've asked for the day off of work already, so I'm not expected. I might go in and work on some projects I don't usually have time for and keep an eye out locally. The 4kmWRF precip model is showing some activity on the Palmer tomorrow near dark. I might be interested if some small hail can develop or if there is some good lightning.
That, my friends, is it.
... two weeks of watching this system. Wow. I'm a little disappointed, but I'm sure my wallet won't mind.
