The following consists of a set of daily maps of sea level pressure (hPa), 500-hPa geopotential height (m), lifted indices (LI; °C), and surface to 500-hPa wind shear (m s-1). The top panels are the analyzed data, determined from the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)-National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) reanalyses. The middle panels are 2-day forecasts that are valid at the same time as the analysis data. The bottom panels are 5-day forecasts valid at the same time.

Also attached are tornado tracks on each day of interest.
