Status:  IOP Watch  for possible IOP commencing Thur 3 March

As expected yesterday, the PI’s have agreed to cancel the IOP watch for Tuesday because this system appears to be too marginal in terms of low-level shear and CAPE.

The PI’s decided to commence a new IOP watch for Thursday.  Details are murky concerning the track and intensity of this wave, with a consequent murkiness in expectations concerning the warm sector location and CAPE.

Investigators who will be northern AL for other reasons are encouraged to communicate about possible informal “shake-down” deployments between now and Thursday, especially with the expected marginal convection on Tue afternoon/evening.
