Historic Tornado Outbreak April 27, 2011

Recommended Posts

You know it's a nasty outbreak when the current tornado warnings outnumber the svr warnings by at least double.

Agreed, currently 33 separate tornado warnings, many for multiple counties. I don't remember the last time I've seen this. Unbelievable.

These storms aren't even safe to chase... if you don't watch your back, you're liable to have another twister spin up behind you. Everybody should just hunker down in the basement for the rest of the day until this threat has passed.

with infrastructure damage, spotters are a valueable tool in giving out warnings and alerting local townships/cities... they're pro's out there, stay safe. (extremely dangerous situation though)

Everything is spinning because updrafts have 1000 m2/s2 helicity to work with, and plenty of low level CAPE to stretch it. Then add in that 0-1 km shear is 50+ kts and you will have many, many strong and probably more than a few violent tornadoes.

and they out number t-storm warnings 2 to 1..shows how discrete the storms are..

this is the worst outbreak i have ever followed even in the plains and I also recall following the April 1998 AL event from the NIU weather lab , and this is over more populated areas then the plains and this is rare even there,,,,,and if storms stay disrete many more hours of this

history in the making

I can't say I've seen anything like this. I experienced the 3-13-90 and 4-26-91 outbreaks in Kansas and I have never seen this many supercells producing large violent tornadoes. More hooks than a bass tournament. BTW I am from Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
