Tornadoes possible today on the high Plains!

Severe weather is expected to impact a fairly wide area today, with  thunderstorms possible from the Texas Panhandle all the way to southern  Minnesota. The main threat will be centered over the high Plains of northeast  Colorado into western Kansas and Nebraska. Forecast models indicate  that high-to-extreme instability will be overlapping an area of relatively high  helicity, creating an environment favorable for isolated strong tornadoes and  "gorilla hail" in extreme northeast Colorado this afternoon, with the risk  gradually shifting east into the evening. The area along the I-76 corridor looks  particularly interesting for intense thunderstorm development before 00z,  especially when considering the anticipated super-slow east-northeast storm  motion. This could be a fairly significant storm chasing event, and, as such,  numerous chasers will be gathering in the region this afternoon -- among them  the Omaha Twister Chasers team, who were on the Scottsbluff, NE monster  supercell on June 7 streamed this AMAZING structure Live!!!!
