Interstate 69 Fan

Thought I make this thread for everything tornado/hail-related. We have a severe risk for Saturday and Wednesday.

It's go-time for severe weather season!  The Storm Prediction Center has just upgraded the threat from enhanced to moderate, for the mid-Ohio valley to the Missouri bootheel and the Memphis area.  Widespread severe weather is expected, especially damaging winds, and there's also a significant chance of tornadoes.

It is indeed the time of year for severe weather.  :paranoid:  :camera:

I wonder if this storm system is heading towards my neck of the woods (northwest Georgia). However, I will be in the lowcountry of South Carolina in a couple of days, so it's possible it may not affect me in the same way than if I wasn't going out of town at the end of this week.

In their area, does anyone else want more severe weather?

I always do. I was in the MDT area yesterday, got northing, but was under a severe thunderstorm warning TWICE, the first such occurrence in a same day for Indy.

The slight risk for eastern NC for today is beginning to look like much adieu about nothing. The we never got the clear skies here in New Bern that was needed to really get things going. Latest word from SPC is that a severe watch is unlikely (only 20% chance).

Where I am (northwest Georgia), there did end up being some strong thunderstorms for a very brief amount of time last night (from 1 to 2 AM, IIRC). There was some very strong winds and rain as well, I think. It didn't last long at all, and thankfully, I don't think it really caused too many (if any) damages in my town (Dalton, GA).

Sustained 60 mph winds today, with snow showers.

Take a look at the Rochester area right now on Google Maps (with traffic turned on). Road closures everywhere due to fallen trees. No power at home as we speak  :banghead: :coffee:

Enhanced risk tomorrow.

Severe weather moving through Arkansas today! Fort Smith was under a Tornado Warning until 4:15 CST. There are still storms moving (s)west to (n)east. Another round looks like it is headed for Fort Smith and the NAW area. Mountainburg, AR already had a tornado touch down.
Well, that's just like your opinion man...

State of Emergency for Danville, VA after a long tracked wedge tornado that started in Greensboro tore through the western part of the city. This system also went to produce another tornado near Lynchburg.

Thanks for posting this. I have it bookmarked.

I love severe weather. I just hope it doesn't continue into Saturday, because I'm planning on taking a road trip that day and any rain would ruin that. I mean, who wants to take pictures standing outside in the rain?

Oh my - moderate risk tonight. SPC was supposed to update tomorrow's risk area 15 minutes ago.

And tomorrow. Might even happen Thursday as well

Well THIS is unusual.
SPC has an enhanced threat of severe storms over...Vermont and upstate New York?  Last I checked there was nothing more than a marginal risk slated for that region.  (see the second post for image)  Storm Prediction Center Outlook

Just checked the SPC archives... and I saw this.



I have never seen a MOD risk in the Northeast before. This is from earlier today.

EDIT: Apparently this was already written. Thanks @paulthemapguy!
I take pictures of road signs, that's about it.

General rule of thumb: Just stay in the "Traffic Control" section of the forum and you'll be fine.

UPDATE!

A MOD risk for severe weather has just been sent out by the SPC for parts of Northern New Jersey, Southern Upstate New York, Southwestern Massachusetts, Northwestern Connecticut, and Northeastern Pennsylvania. They're also predicting a 60% severe wind threat, one of the first I've seen in a while.

I was surprised to see the 60% wind risk. Given the atmospheric conditions, it makes sense, but it's just so rare! Being the weather nerd I am, I'm jealous of my family that lives in SW Massachusetts.

Northeast gonna get creamed today lol
The local weatherman, trust me I can be 99.9% right!
