Convective activity began today earlier than was expected across the southern Great Plains. We placed groups in CWA’s where the greatest severe threat was expected for the day: Norman, Wichita, and Hastings. As convection was already ongoing when we began operations, attention was focused on warning activities from the start, with the Earth Networks lightning products, Lightning Jump, and ProbSevere Model having a lot of utility.
Tomorrow, we will start activities at 12:00 pm in the Dev Lab for the daily debrief before moving to the HWT for the EFP briefing. Activities will likely shift back to West Texas.
