May 29: western Nebraska

Despite SPC's low risk, the forecast soundings and hodographs look favorable for briefly rotating storms and, perhaps, for a window of about 2 hours, tornadic storms, in the region roughly where I76 and I80 merge in Nebraska.  Thom has gone home, and I will be joined for the last several days by Cameron Redwine as a storm chase partner.  My regular "second half" of the chase partner, Scott Landolt, is with VORTEX2 for the next three weeks.
