Pictures from Ole Miss University!

TVN is currently stationed in Oxford/Tupelo, MS, with the Dominator  being outfitted with air cannons and the revamped radar by Hyperion  Technology Group.  It looks like we could be here for the whole week,  with an array of 12 cannons being mounted on the back right side of the  shell, with 50 temperature/moisture/pressure probes outfitted with  parachutes ready for launch.  It looks like tomorrow and Wednesday could  be good storm chasing days in the Southern Plains, and it's torture to  potentially miss these, but we absolutely have to have the Dominator  fully outfitted with our research equipment in time for the apocalypse  on Saturday through early next week.  By the calendar we may be half way  through the season, but based on the long-range models it looks like  the real season has not even begun.  So far we're up to 17 tornadoes,  most from close range and one good intercept, with hopefully many more  to come over open terrain!  Have already grinded out between 10 and 15,000 miles across Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Tennessee, and Mississippi, and with no AC in the Dominator and cabin temperatures consistently soaring about 100F it has been brutal.  Rarely clean laundry as well as an added business!  I'll be posting about tomorrow's severe chances once all the model data is available!  Stay tuned...
