May 2024 Discussion - Welcome to Severe Season!!!!

Well it's hard to believe we are one week away from the beginning of severe weather season. Lots happens as we move through the first few weeks of May, plan life blossoms, the Bruins/Celtics make deep payoff pushes, the Red Sox be the Red Sox, and the weather warms and we even sneak in some humid days at times. We also turn our attention to the convective side and monitor for severe chances.

A wonderful gift may be in store as forecast models indicate a strong shortwave trough traversing the Northeast region next Tuesday with unseasonably warm temperatures out ahead of it and perhaps a surge of higher dewpoints with the advection of rich theta-e air. If this potential continues, a thread can be made down the road.

For now, let's focus on the arrival of May as we make the push towards summer! 

The first few weeks of May have potential to be quite warm, however, we have to watch as there are some indications an omega block pattern could evolve and of course we always have to keep an eye on for backdoor cold fronts.

@weatherwiz just an big time PDS warned TOR tonight. I’ve never seen one U-turn like this…

Severe Weather Statement
National Weather Service Norman OK
1002 PM CDT Tue Apr 30 2024

...A TORNADO WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1030 PM CDT FOR SOUTH CENTRAL COMANCHE...WEST CENTRAL COTTON AND EAST CENTRAL TILLMAN COUNTIES...

At 1002 PM CDT, a confirmed large and extremely dangerous tornado was located 4 miles north of Loveland, moving east at 10 mph.

This is a PARTICULARLY DANGEROUS SITUATION. TAKE COVER NOW!

Awful resolution but look at the TDS

At a minimum requirement for recovering temp today the mid and high level cloud levels need to pass off.   Check ...

But as that miasma slips off the area, it is exposing some of the densest low level strata there can be without actually being underwater. man 

The sun is very intense at this time of year though.
