    Severe Weather: April 2, 2015

    Interesting the tornado on the boookend of that MCS isn't on the storm reports this morning...

    JoMo, why would they do that? The 3 minute pause could cause people to think the threat has passed.

    That was very strong wording for a radar indicated circulation. I wonder if there was a tornado? There was definitely a couplet near Afton...

    Yup, that looks like a tornado couplet south of Carterville

    Once the Low-Level Jet kicks up around sundown the Tornado risk will increase significantly. RAP forecast hodographs are supportive or strong tornadoes in far NE OK / Joplin area. The surface low is currently centered just east of the Stillwater area with a quasi-warm front extending NEward into SE KS. Watch out along that front NE of the low center. Line of tornadic supercells possible.

    Roommate has reported Cedar Rapids as a "complete mess". Numerous neighborhoods with tree damage. KDP Looks like an MCV progressive deracho.

    June 26th-July 1st Severe Potential

    Woke up early this morning in Norman and decided to be a no-go. Hope you can make me regret this thunder road.
  12. Equations needed: Tv = (1+0.61w)T , ThetaV = Tv(1000p)^Rd/Cp Here we are assuming specific humidity q is approx by mix ratio w. You need to find mixing ratio to solve problem. w = RH*ws ws is saturated mix ratio ws = Rd / Rv * esw is saturation vapor pressure Use Clausius-Clapeyron equation to find this esw = 6.11 * exp[Lv*Rv*(1To - 1T)]. To = O*C = 273.15 K All other variables are known or generally constant Remember to use SI units when performing calculations Peace[emoji96]
