Friday in Review - Kicking Off SWIFT 2017!

SWIFT 2017 kicked off early this year at 0630. With a 13 hour drive ahead of us, we were eager to hit the road. We stopped at Major's house in Ohio where his parents treated us to a delicious lunch with famous Ohio Buckeyes as a treat! Overall, we've passed through 6 states: Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois and entered a new time zone. We've gotten to know each other pretty well so far (13 hours in a van with the same people does that to a group).

Early this evening, a new run of the models indicated a strong possibility of supercells in the Texas Panhandle extending up into western Kansas, so after our visit to 15th Operational Weather Squadron at Scott Air Force Base and a peek at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, we hope to set our sights on some chasing before checking in with some middle schoolers on Monday!
