Mid to Late May 2019 Severe Threats

Recommended Posts

Lots of areas of strong embedded rotation as we transition to a QLCS tornado threat. As others have said though, flooding will be a MAJOR issue.

Pretty strong couplet west of Eldon MO, there was a weak TDS with it about 5-10 minutes ago.

There's two supercells northeast of Tulsa... near Vera and also Bushyhead that are starting to tighten up.

*Edit - There may be too much surging from the hook region for these to really get going.

That radar hole blows. Had a big CC drop though and it could've been fairly significant.

Cole Co. MO storm riding the north side of the polygon....may go directly into Jefferson City.  So hard to tell from SRV what's really going on.

Wardsville and Jefferson City need to both be on guard. Still a large TDS.

Reflectivity intensifying as the storm approaches Jefferson City.  KEAX showing some pretty good velocity sigs as well...

Lots of neighborhoods in that area.  Interesting this is the first update that included Jefferson City in the warning.  Not sure why that was the case.

Yep, most development follows US 54 south of town.

My guess is because it is literally the absolute northern corner of the polygon, and nearly the entire western 1/2 of the city limits technically aren’t in it.

Whatever was down, and it appears it was down, went right through the middle of Jefferson City.

Wish they had adjusted that initial polygon further north sooner....hope folks weren't caught off guard.

This tornado likely traveled right up US 54 into the city.

Any ground truth tornado reports from Jefferson City proper?  SRV out of KLSX really ticked up as it passed
