March 26-28 Severe Threat

Recommended Posts

Here is the 4-hr rotation track map for the Jonesboro tornado (MRMS) at 20:30z-00:30z. I wonder how long the tornado was on the ground.

Not out of the woods yet. Something may be about to go down in the Peoria, IL metro.

We were very close to at least partially realizing those crazy HRRR runs from Friday afternoon/evening.

  That's why I agreed with what SPC did yesterday even though some were bashing them.  This event was on the extreme edge of several Jonesboro's occurring.  With low level inhibition still managed 22 tornadoes.  Could've easily been 3 times that.

22 is still a pretty good outbreak for a single day.

Realizing that this isn't really the right local forum for this question, but since the correct forum isn't very busy and there has been plenty of discussion about this case in this thread, does anyone have a good feel for why the Jonesboro violent tornado occurred?         SPC's outlook didn't have hatched probs in AR, and the MD they issued a little while before the event  mentioned the possibility of only a few QLCS tornadoes.  The mid-afternoon LZK sounding had decent a decent wind profile, but low-level shear was very modest.    The environment in northeast AR didn't seem particularly special.       Was there a rapid improvement in parameters late Saturday afternoon that wasn't captured?   Or did the storm find a boundary to latch on to?
