  1. In the past 11 years the St Louis area has experienced an EF4, two EF3s and several EF2s. The Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex has experienced EF3s and 4s in the past 10 years. And Oklahoma City and it's suburbs have been walloped by many tornados. EF5s have either struck OKC directly or slammed the suburbs. And so has multiple EF4s. It's not a matter of time. It's already happened. A lot.
  2. When these storms are hurricanes and they are just making landfall the tornados produced are usually weaker. Low end EF2 or lower. When they move inland, weaken to a sloppy low pressure area while transporting deep tropical moisture, and begin interacting with fronts and encountering wind shear is when deeper convection begins to develop and becomes supercellular in nature. Last night was a very good example of that. Stronger, long track tornados associated with severe thunderstorms, torrential rain, a lot of lightning with the stronger storms. The really odd thing of course was location. Eastern PA, NJ, NYC and LI, CT, and Cape Cod. Very rare event obviously.
  3. May Louie and Jackson run and play in the meadows of heaven.
  4. The damage reminds me of The Good Friday tornado in the St Louis area back in 2011.
  5. Nothing really wrong with it. It would just be statements issued with no label. Significant weather advisories are not really needed when a simple statement such as "thunderstorms with gusty winds to 40mph, pea size hail, and frequent lightning will move across such and such counties between 215pm CDT and 345pm cdt. Move indoors until the storms pass. Heavy rain may cause ponding of water on roads."
  6. It seems the Southeastern Forum is dominated by perpetual winter discussions about the slightest chance of snow in the Carolinas. Perhaps the Carolinas should have their own forum. And have Eastern MS, AL, TN, GA, FL for the Southeast. Just my two cents.
  7. It's just awful. No other way to describe it. Takes forever to load. Reflectivity looked better on the old standard mode with the white background. Big letdown.
  8. A lot of people are probably doing Mothers Day celebrations. If this thread doesn't heat up Monday and Tuesday I will be shocked though. Discrete development potential in traditional chase territory should get everyone buzzing.
  9. The first part of both videos reminded me of the Wichita Andover storm as it was over McConnell AFB. The debris being thrown just beyond the parking lot. All it needed was a barracks building to the right of the screen.
  10. I'm not sure if it's the TV stations on site radar or the radar you referenced but either way it's in Monroe and updates about every minute and 30
  11. You can view it through this local station. https://www.myarklamiss.com/live-stream/
  12. I kind of expected it to. Probably some heated discussions and maybe out and out arguing. Or revising the written disco.
  13. If it's you and 1 or 2 others it should be fine. Just bring alcohol wipes or Chlorox wipes and sanitizer. Pack your own food. At the rate these storms will be moving it will be more of a quick intercept rather than following and staying with it.
  14. The afternoon AFDs and HWOs from JAN, HUN, BMX, and FFC are pretty bleak and highlighting long track strong tornadoes and other attendant hazards. Including what could be a flash flood event in addition to the rest of the severe. Chasing would be almost impossible given projected storm motion speeds. Would be more of a storm intercept situation.
