With storm cells moving SE the classic mistake for novice chasers might be to drop too far SW of the updraft. Good positioning would put the chaser directly in front of these storms ready to drop marginally south of the outflow precip. The updrafts can and often do occur on the southern leading edge of such storm. Another point here might be that strong convection is likely to occur close the to the fulcrum of the wave but then die out after an hr or two. Whereby even stronger convection should then develop much further south. In short chasing the first lot of convection will put you north and behind the better storm potential later in the afternoon. So probably better to resist chasing the first signs of convection popping up on your radar screen.
