    Go to sources

    All the way from strictly lay weather watchers to professionals on here, name some go to sources for severe weather, winter weather, event planning, tropical weather. Where to you look to get you’re information to use to make decisions based on the weather?

    Severe WX Severe Weather Threat 6/19-6/23/2019

    A 50knt+ mid level shortwave and 576-582 height falls overspread our area with large to extreme instability in place. It should provide a healthy severe weather event for our neck of the woods.

    May 6 and 7 2003 tornado outbreaks in Georgia and Alabama

    As many of you know, May 6 and 7, 2003 were the days that Georgia and Alabama were affected the most by that outbreak event. I was wondering if any TV news coverage has been posted online from the TV stations in Alabama and Georgia of that event. Also, feel free to share your memories of...

    I've been fascinated with Severe Storms since I was 8 or 9, almost 30 years. Over the last year or so I've began trying to understand models, soundings in particular.... Is there a site that breaks down how to interpret the info found in a sounding? I have a rudimentary understanding of some...

    Severe WX Tuesday, April 30, 2019 Severe Threat

    I figured an Enhanced Risk with a 10% hatched tornado area deserved a thread of its own, even if it’s a rather localized and conditional threat. https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/outlook/day1otlk.html (can’t post the images from my phone) There’s a still good bit of model spread on this. The...

    Severe WX April 24 - 26 Gulf Coast Severe Event

    I suspect Thursday will be a run of the mill severe event. Nothing like the last couple of bigger events, but we should get enough instability and dynamics for some isolated severe.

    Severe WX Severe Weather Threat April 7th-9th, 2019

    A large slight risk is out for tomorrow, and Monday is looking more, and more interesting.

    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...

    Severe WX Severe Weather Threat 2/6-2/7/19

    Episodic severe weather threat today over a pretty large area.

    Severe WX Severe Wx Threat - 1/19/19

    Since we have had multiple tornado warnings, and currently have a warning for Tuscaloosa County, AL, I figured a dedicated thread would be a good idea.

    Top 10 AL Weather Events?

    Hi everyone! Been lurking around this forum since 2002 (seriously!). I was wondering, what would you say are the top 10 Alabama weather events of the past 50 years, and in what order would you rank them in terms of historical significance?

    Severe Weather 2019

    I hope everyone had a great evening last night and rang in 2019 while celebrating the achievements and good times of 2018 while also remembering times that not have been so good in 2018. We do not become better by forgetting the past but learning from it. May God bless every one of you this...

    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...
