Enhanced risk area for most of Oklahoma and south Kansas. Thunderstorms firing off around Lawton. I've seen this movie before, have you?

I see that part of the Storm King Highway was washed out due to the Upstate New York flooding.

I always wanted to put that road on my bucket list.

I walked it in the off-season.

'

Anybody else think that the 'Enhanced' and 'Moderate' labels should be flip-flopped? Enhanced sounds more serious than Moderate.

That's because the scale was originally SLGT-MDT-HIGH. ENH and Marginal (MRGL) were added later on.

I'm personally used to it enough, it would be weird if it changed at this point.

ENH helped bridge the gap between slight and moderate risks while MGL replaced the see text on outlooks prior to the update

Western Montana received quite a dump of rain these last three days starting with what looked like a 13 hour stretch of moderate showers in spurts of about 20 minutes at a time on Monday. I saw another burst of moderate rain at about 6 PM MDT on Tuesday, then another at 5:30 AM MDT this Wednesday morning before it cleared by 10 AM MDT. It still doesn't erase the severe drought conditions however, but it does slowly help break off any long form drought. These spurts of moderate to sometimes heavy rain in many areas were mainly coming from the remnants of former Tropical Storm Hilary. While it does help tap down some of the wildfires in my home state, there are still mud slide and flooding issues at hand in multiple areas including burn scars where lightning struck fires have occurred.

Our first ever February tornado in Wisconsin wrecked some homes and farms near Evansville last night.  No fatalities or serious injuries, fortunately.

The supercell tracked from just east of Monroe to just north of Edgerton:

It would have been at its worst when it crossed WI 59 and the Dane-Rock county line.

NWS is out assessing damage, but to my amateur eye, it looks like at least EF2 based on photos I've seen.

Last weekend was my first "car in the garage" night of the year. Nothing came of it and likely won't have another one of those until late March (I hope).
