FWIW, I'll be in Denver this weekend to do a couple talks at Chaser Con. The first on Saturday 2/13 will focus on the June 7 2009 supercell (essentially non-tornadic) in NW Missouri that was followed by what seemed like thousands of storm chasers. The second on Sunday 2/14 will look at some short term chase targeting issues as well as some tornado forecasting stuff in somewhat potpourri fashion.
A couple talks I'm looking forward to are Erik Rasmussen's about what's left to learn about tornadoes, and Chris Novy's talk about chaser responsibility and safety. Chris in particular is smart, entertaining, and cutting edge, and his talk should not be missed by anyone who takes storm chasing seriously.
On another subject, Andy Fischer has written an excellent analysis of the recent 1/21/10 tornadic mini supercell setting at Huntsville AL (associated with a "cold core" midlevel low). In this case, the tornado occurred with a cell well south of the surface low along the trailing front, which is somewhat different than the "typical" cold core setup. Andy's post is on his blog at: http://tornadoheadblog.blogspot.com
Hope to talk with some storm chaser colleagues in Denver!
