Today is January 24th, 2019, and we could have our first severe wind threat of the year. Models are forecasting a very intense, somewhere around 4 above standard deviations of a low-level jet stream intensity. 100-knot is very anomalous for a low-level jet strength. If convection can tap into this jet stream at 2000 to 5000 feet, than we can see damaging winds above 90mph enter the region sometime after 18z today. Be tuned into the timing of the passage of the severe cold front, as these storms could be tornadic, but most likely damaging wind threat. Stay tuned!
