  1. Well, what do you know> ERTAF puts up a map for week 2 outlook graphic right in the heart of tornado alley from TX north to Kansas. First time they've felt confident enough to post a map in awhile.
  2. April 2018 General Discussion

    For the first time in seemingly ages my NWS long range outlook is calling for above normal temps and normal precip as we enter May. I'll believe it when I feel it.
  3. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought for a PDS tornado watch to verify you had to have multiple long track (20 mile or more) strong to violent tornadoes. Did we achieve this?
  4. SPC maintains moderate risk into the overnight hours.
  5. BULLETIN - EAS ACTIVATION REQUESTED TORNADO WARNING NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SHREVEPORT LA 650 PM CDT FRI APR 13 2018 THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SHREVEPORT HAS ISSUED A * TORNADO WARNING FOR... NORTHEASTERN SEVIER COUNTY IN SOUTHWESTERN ARKANSAS... NORTHERN HOWARD COUNTY IN SOUTHWESTERN ARKANSAS... * UNTIL 730 PM CDT * AT 650 PM CDT, A CONFIRMED TORNADO WAS LOCATED NEAR LOCKESBURG, OR NEAR DE QUEEN, MOVING NORTHEAST AT 35 MPH.

  6. I read somewhere (maybe SPC) to expect multiple lines in the moderate risk area this evening.
  7. Storms are now developing and intensifying se of Shreveport and moving n/ne. I am assuming this is because of the LLJ. New tor watch issued for much of southern Missouri.
  8. I would also keep an eye on the storms ne of Dallas as they move ne into se OK and AR. They are quite the hailers at present and parameters are more favorable as they move eastward. Hot Springs 72/70...Mena 75/73...Arkadelphia 74/69 Little Rock 70/70 all with south winds.
  9. 300 m2/s2 heliciry in that part of AR......higher to the south as new storms will approach from the west/sw. We're just getting started.
  10. It is strange to have svr t storm warnings with thundersnow, but it does happen at times. I've experienced it once in my life.
  11. Was this much early convection expected in eastern OK? CAM models I looked at showed sparse pickings of precip until later today.
  12. At 3 a.m. CDT I must say it's been a long time since we have seen a low this deep...988mb in central Kansas, and excellent lapse rates and helicity over a wide area. Now if dew points can just advect northward we might have a significant day weatherwise that we haven't seen in quite awhile.

    Had not read about the volcano. I wondered what might have caused the intense Greenland block. Only read about stratospheric warming.

    Well, a year without a spring might be better than 1816 and Mt. Tambora volcano causing the year without a summer. But who knows what might yet happen in May and June.
