Thanks to Raedwulf for the links below:


http://www.meted.ucar.edu/resource/soo/MesoAnalyst.htm
This will provide you with a simple chart for understanding how to read meso-analysis.
It also gives more detailed explanations, though some not as useful as others...

http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/mesoan...php?sector=16# (http://www.spc.noaa.gov/exper/mesoanalysis/new/viewsector.php?sector=16#)
This is a great chart to look at to check hourly updated meso-analysis.

HRRR models(Take this with a grain of salt)
