    Tuesday, May 28th, 2019 Evening/Overnight Convection

    Seems like the Hudson acts like a brick wall for severe, it rarely makes it past...

    Not bad, constant lightning in the sky...

    Does not feel like a severe day. At all.

    Mid to Late May 2019 Severe Threats

    Reed Timmer intercepted one of the Nebraska tornadoes on foot earlier. That's right, he walked into a tornado - or rather, the tornado came down on top of him and he didn't run away. Video is on his twitter feed. The mans crazy, but you have to give him props.

    Mid to Late May 2019 Severe Threats

    That cell has recently produced at least 2 small tornadoes, per streams from Brett Adair and Sequoyah Quinton. Rotation never looked that good on radar, but the tors were undeniable.

    Mid to Late May 2019 Severe Threats

    Cell got its own MD: Mesoscale Discussion 0658 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 0812 PM CDT Fri May 17 2019 Areas affected...Portions of central Nebraska Concerning...Tornado Watch 172... Valid 180112Z - 180315Z The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 172 continues. SUMMARY...A long-lived supercell thunderstorm continues to move into an environment favorable for tornadoes. The strength of the low-level wind fields suggests that some tornadoes may be significant. Large hail will also be possible. DISCUSSION...An intense supercell with a history of producing tornadoes has been ongoing for the last few hours and has shown increasing signs of rotation per KUEX radar. Low-veering in the KUEX VAD profile shows very large 0-1 km SRH approaching 400 m2/s2. Given the continued influx of higher theta-e air and increased low-level winds accompanying the low-level jet, this activity is expected to persist into at least mid-evening. Tornadoes, some significant, and large hail will all be possible with this activity. ..Wendt.. 05/18/2019

    Severe storms and flash flooding for May 7-13

    Nice. That was the original cell that went up just north of Amarillo, that had a lot of chasers on it at first but most had given it up as a losing proposition well before the tor... Just goes to show, you never can tell, especially in the panhandle. To be fair, the couplet on it was never all that impressive on radar.

    And as darkness closes in, there has been a single confirmed tornado... In Cheyenne, WY. Nobody predicted that would happen.

    Severe storms and flash flooding for May 7-13

    New watch for southwest KS, finally. They waited until initiation was well underway. I guess that's one way of doing it, with at least some certainty of storms...

    Tornado watch up for eastern KS south of the front, initiation seems in doubt to the southwest, at least for the time being...

    April 29-May 1 Severe Weather

    Best tornado of the day: It's in Romania! Edit: Video link I used was apparently taken down, but look for Rumanian tornado April 30 and you can probably find it

    That smaller cell up in Lenapah just produced a small tornado, watched it on live strem

    April 2019 Discussion II

    Yeah, should have qualified that... Lets just say that lapse rates/poor instability made a severe supercell unlikely there.

    April 2019 Discussion II

    Interesting situation. If you believe mesoanalysis that storm had nothing going for it... Except some moderately strong low level shear helped by locally backed winds. Seeming very unlikely to produce in that environment - but then there shouldn't have been a cell that strong there in the 1st place.

    The Little Storm That Could - March 3/4

    Still all snow in HVN, and still insanely heavy, the sleet looks to be confined to southeast portion of the state...
