The storm southeast of Hohenwald, TN has a 74dbz return, half dollar size hail, and 60 mph wind gust, but no frequent lightning. That’s different.

The storms that rolled through NC yesterday resulted in a microburst that caused some damage to a school.

For whatever it's worth, I think it's worth bringing attention back to this with the fires that have been going on in Australia.

It's an interesting article but the smoke effect really needs to be studied more in detail. This study found it enhanced the effects while the general consensus is smoke played a huge part in the now infamous 45% bust back in May across OK. That's an area of study that needs to be explored more.

Agreed I am pretty skeptical TBH. It says itself in the article that the models don't take into account things like smoke particles in the air. Even without that in the models all of the major tornado parameters we are aware of were pretty much off the charts leading up to this breakout. That day was going to be historical any way you slice it. I find it hard to believe some smoke had much if anything to do with it.
