    May 16-21 Severe Threats

    Yeah, has to do with an MCS moving through in the morning/early afternoon, which will be less severe but more of a sure bet to happen. And then a more conditional threat of supercells to the west which would have more significant severe.
  2. going to be in Minneapolis this weekend and ironically might escape the snow being up north.

    Yeah, there were a couple of very vivid lightning strikes that hit the radio towers on the SW side of town. Probably tops most of the lightning I saw last year

    List your Strongest Tornadoes ever

    This is a fun topic. I'll put together some thoughts, not sure if it will be 10 or 20 or somewhere in between: 1) Jarrell, Texas 1997 - Some of the most complete damage of homes ever seen. 2) El Reno, Oklahoma 2011 - 1.9 million pound oil derrick was toppled and rolled 3 times. 20,000 pound truck was thrown over a mile 3) Phil Campbell, Alabama 2011 - F5 damage for much of its length. ground scouring, a car was completely destroyed and never found 4) Bridge Creek, Oklahoma 1999 - The infamous Moore tornado of 99, measured 318 mph winds 5) Smithville, Mississippi 2011 - Picked up an SUV and threw it a half mile into the towns water tower. all plumbing in some hones were either shredded or missing 6) Andover, Kansas 1991 - famous Andover tornado 7) Kellerville, Texas 1995 - This was only rated an F4 but the damage to a home was so intense that the surveyors missed it. Also ripped up multiple stretches of pavement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qmJOy0bxMQ (can be seenat 11:00 of this video) 8) Guin, Alabama 1974 - One of the longest F5 damage paths for a tornado 9) Goessel, Kansas 1990 - The second F5 for this supercell after the Hesston storm. 10) Plainfield, Illinois 1990 - Fujita said it was some of the most intense ground scouring he's ever seen 11) Bakersfield Valley, Texas 1990- Only rated an F4 but rolled 180000 pound oil tanks 3 miles and 600 feet up a hill 12) Stratton, Nebraska 1990 - also rated an F4 and fairly unknown but mangled farm equipment into balls and picked up mud from a lake and plastered it throughout the town(the pic below is of the incredible meso of this storm) 13) Philadelphia, Mississippi 2011 - 2 foot deep ground scouring 14) Brandenburg, Kentucky 1974 15) Wheatland, Pennsylvania 1985 16) Barneveld, Wisconsin 1984 17) Loyal Valley, Texas 1999 18) Jordan, Iowa 1976 - 19) Mulhall, Oklahoma 1999 20) Greensburg, Kansas 2007

    Looks like we will be approaching the record lows on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of -8, -9 and -12 respectively. As of right now record low maxs seem just out of reach, but the all time record low max for the month of March is 0.
