We charted about 400 miles last night to the Central Time Zone to set up for Monday’s potential severe development. Valentine, NE is right along the border with South Dakota, and driving in last night we saw vivid lightning to the northeast associated with a severe MCS (mesoscale convective system) that was tornado warned.
We will assemble with TWISTEX crews this morning, as they are posted to our east. The storm threat still looks greatest over central South Dakota today. Details soon!
Here’s a look at the preliminary SPC outlook for today.
