The models are pointing to good chase setups for both the Hokie Storm Chasers currently in Nebraska after a successful chase yesterday and for those of us here in the Mid-Atlantic.   Storm initiation for northern Virginia appears to be mid-afternoon so I will be positioning myself a bit earlier than normal tomorrow, probably getting to a chase target by 2:00 pm.  Said target is TBD until I can get a look at the short-range local models tomorrow morning, and storm motions out of the northwest will help determine the road network needed to track the cells.  My guess is that I will default to my usual Culpeper target as that locale provides a plethora of good roads in many directions coupled with relatively open farmland vistas, but nothing is definite at this point.
