Southern Georgia and northern Florida better have storm shelters!

Man up my way they had us all worried that we were going to get pounded (and we were only in the SLIGHT risk category) and we've had nothing more than a drizzly kind of rain here.

I've heard all about this, and it is quite a storm system. I was aiming to turn on The Weather Channel earlier but the power went out before I could, as it has been storming up in my neck of the woods (northwest Georgia) as well - but not anywhere near as bad as down there in southern Georgia and northern Florida the past couple of days. It's a shame so many people died.

NWS Tampa Bay had us in the moderate than high risk category. Ended up with a narrow squall line and around 20 minutes of heavy rain with one notable lightning strike. The windy morning and afternoon preceding the line was more notable than the actual thunderstorms themselves.

The one time I was in a tornadic situation when I was in Kansas City, I found the Weather Channel to be kind of useless in mesoscale events. You're better off with a local meteorologist who knows the area better.

That's true. Usually when storms erupt locally, my family and I watch a combination of The Weather Channel and the local news and weather broadcasting. We like to get input from both sources.

This was the first High Risk of severe storms since the start of the new 5-category system that was enacted on October 22, 2014. High risk events have typically occurred with one or two synoptic scale systems per year -- but this is the longest time period (2 years, 7 months, 19 days since June 3, 2014) known to exist between "high risk" days since the 1980's (May 3, 1984-May 7, 1988 = 4 years and 4 days). There may well have been other "High Risk" days in the latter time frame which would cut this down significantly, but no record exists of them.

Two months later, another high risk day across the Ark-La-Tex region for some pretty potent severe thunderstorms

Looks like tomorrow could be good in southern MO. I'm on my way there as I type this.
