    Severe WX Multi-day Severe Weather Threat 3/12-3/14/2019

    There’s a large enhanced risk today for parts of southeastern New Mexico, and west central/southwest Texas. The threat then shifts eastward tomorrow, and Thursday into the MS River Valley, Southeast, and Ohio Valley with a slight risk.

    Severe WX Sunday March 3 Severe Threat

    Over the past day or two, the Euro has been consistent in depicting an embedded shortwave with associated surface cyclogenesis across AL/GA on Sunday. A broad warm sector spreads across the area and with a good amount of shear, it looks like severe weather, including tornadoes, is a good bet...

    Strongest tornado of 2018

    2018 will likely end up as the first year on record in which no officially-rated violent tornadoes occurred in the United States. This year has now beaten 2005 and entered unprecedented territory, and it has now been nearly 19 months since the last officially-rated violent tornado. With that...

    Severe WX Severe Weather Threat 11/12/18

    The GFS, NAM, and EURO show a severe weather threat Monday, November 12th, but defer on how far the threat extends inland. The EURO has been adamant about getting it further north into central Alabama, and Georgia, whereas the GFS, and NAM have been hesitant to bring the threat inland until...

    Severe WX Severe Weather Threat 10/31-11/2

    Its officially spooky week, which also marks the unofficial beginning of the Dixie Alley cool severe weather season and we have certainly some spooky weather to track. A potent and, if current trends continue, potentially significant severe weather threat exists for MS, AL, and TN as early as...

    Damage survey sites?

    Not sure this goes in this forum specifically, but anyway. For my research paper on storm data which I'm writing this term at university, I've chosen to compare and contrast the original Fujita scale and the EF scale. One thing that I need for that is a site which shows damage surveys in detail...

    Severe WX Severe Weather threat for 7/19-7/22/18

    Models amplify a trough Thursday through the weekend across the eastern US. The jet configuration is healthy being that it's broadly stretched, and abnormally strong for this time of the year. It will filter in cooler air aloft resulting in steep lapse rates, and a strongly unstable atmosphere...

    Severe WX Severe Weather Threat 4/6-4/7/18

    This looks like a pretty significant southward/ eastward advancing MCS event with a multitude of damaging wind reports.

    A couple of questions to try to spark some pre-season tornado discussion.

    #1 Which Tornado was the strongest on record? OR Can you really say? I read through the older thread about the 20th Anniversary of the Jarrell tornado was brought back up on the board, so I thought I would share this list that I found recently...

    April 3, 1974

    86 Alabamians lost their lives on this date in 1974. This state has always had bad luck in outbreak situations. We had the most fatalities in the Super Outbreaks of 1932, 1974 and 2011. We must remain vigilant and communicate with others.

    On this date in 1932, a deadly and horrific tornado outbreak struck the deep south

    On this date in 1932, a deadly and horrific tornado outbreak struck the deep south. Hardest hit were the states of Alabama, Georgia, and Tennessee......similar to the April 27-28, 2011 tornado swarm nearly 80 years later. A total of 334 perished in the deadly tornadoes, most in northern and...

    Severe WX Severe Weather Threat 3/23-3/27 Weekend or Whatever

    I know that we're still 5 plus days out, but someone has to start a thread.... What are everyone's thoughts on the VERY late March 24 through March 25, 2017 event? Based on Helicity values, I'm thinking more a strong straight line wind event, maybe even some hail, but I just don't think, at...

    US Tornado Fatality Trends (1950-2016 & 1990-2016)

    A couple of maps I created using official SPC Tornado Death statistics. The first map is the total number of tornado deaths by state from 1950 thru 2016 (a 67 year period of record). In 1950, technology for detecting tornadoes and warning the public was primitive when compared to today. For...

    Strongest tornadoes on record

    I like to hear peoples' opinions, and one I have found to be in a constant debate is what one considers to be the strongest tornadoes to have touched down are. My short list on the matter of what I consider to be the strongest tornadoes observed are: *Jarrell, Texas (5/27/1997) - Produced the...
