    Tn Valley Severe Weather 2018-19

    Once the hail threat diminished some, that momentum really brought the wind to Smyrna, Walter Hill, and northern Murfreesboro. My folks took some tree damage and there were numerous snapped and uprooted trees near the Siegel schools and the VA Medical Center.

    June 2-9 Great Plains area Svr Activity

    71mph (62kts) max gust at Love Field (KDAL) which also suffered a total power failure because of the storms. 1 confirmed fatality so far from the tower crane that snapped and collapsed in Old East Dallas, just NE of downtown. KPMG Plaza suffered numerous broken windows from falling/flying debris from the adjacent Hall Arts Residences that's under construction in the Arts District. Countless large trees, some over 100 years old, toppled in the Prestwood/Preston Hollow area of northern Dallas.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Flooding Thread

    Levee has been overtopped on the Illinois at Nutwood. Also, the River des Peres in south St. Louis is about to go over Broadway and many, many businesses in Southtown and vicinity are pumping their basements.

    2019 Short/Medium Range Severe Weather Thread

    A very intense cluster of storms is headed for the STL area, and this could be a very nasty situation given the hail history combined with both the Blues at home and Cardinals at home this evening. There's at least 70,000+ people downtown for the events, so this is a potentially critical situation evolving.

    Spring/Summer 2019 Flooding Thread

    MS River at St. Louis is now forecasted to crest at 44ft on the 3rd but then hold at that level for 3-5 days. This would be the #2 crest and potential is there for the crest to be higher by up to 2ft depending on rainfall.

    Mid to Late May 2019 Severe Threats

    There's only widely scattered farms in that region outside of the towns, like Colby and Hays. It'd be extremely easy for a tornado to hit nothing but maybe some center-pivot irrigation equipment out there and nothing else.

    Confirmed tornado in El Reno, moving east.

    Mid to Late May 2019 Severe Threats

    The Jefferson City tornado took probably the 2nd worst track into the city. Mind you, it’s one of the smallest state capitals in the nation, so the track last night was about as bad as it could get. The only track that would’ve been worse was an ESE trajectory right down US 50, crossing the entire breadth of the city from west to east. .

    I think you’re right. That is a bit surprising given the two significant tornadoes that’ve gone right through densely populated areas of St. Charles & St. Louis Counties and St. Louis City in 2011 and 2013. .

    Mid to Late May 2019 Severe Threats

    I saw the posted video and you can see debris in the roadway. This is after it had moved through the city and was dissipating.

    Funnel cloud near St. Paul in St. Charles County. Rotation is practically riding parallel to I-70 by about 3 miles north.

    Mid to Late May 2019 Severe Threats

    One thing that is concerning for metro St. Louis is the storms to the north, now in Illinois, have laid down a southward-moving outflow that the Jeff. City supercell is currently riding, and further warned on now in western St. Charles County. Another storm farther southwest, near Washington, is aimed right at STL and may intercept the outflow along the way and ride it in. I guess I'll find out in a little while.
