Well the low over Texas today has been somewhat of a producer...several tornadoes being reported in east/northeast TX, AK, and OK. I count 5 active warnings as of right now and there were a few more earlier.

There was an unusual amount of tornado warnings given it was only in a slight risk area.( I know just because the risk doesn't seem high doesn't mean it won't be high for ex. March 2nd, 2020 a slight risk for the outlook on the day, right before midnight, an EF4 tornado hits Cookeville, Tennessee, it was stronger than all of the tornadoes in 2019.

It's 2020, where even in an area not pegged by a risk zone today (Louisiana) there's reports of a tornado that did some damage.



Hope they'll be okay. :(

So the upper level cut off low must be right over south central Alabama right now. Anybody getting any hail or lightning today?

Tornado reported coming in on the west side of Columbus metro (OH).


Making a severe thread to keep up with this + looking at the next few days of severe potential.

More on Church Point tornado. Potential EF3.


Very sad situation with the fatality on top of the lack of forewarning---I don't think storms were anticipated to have been that severe.

Might see some cold core funnels over the next couple days I’m the Tennessee Valley. 48 was talking about it being -3 at 18,000 feet. I know the storms that fired yesterday afternoon around Huntsville had low cloud bases so any funnels we get will be interesting.

BOOM: Like a bomb going off, we witnessed this INCREDIBLE explosion of energy on a discrete severe supercell south of Miles City, MT.
This is the same storm that produced tennis ball hail that took out our windshield on I-94. This is the most intense and rapid development I’ve ever seen a thunderstorm undergo. From small group of cumulus to full blown cumulonimbus! We also suspect this storm split with the right moving cell impacting the Miles City area. 5/20/20

Can't remember if this was posted in another thread or not yet, but it looks like a regional outbreak for Kansas/Colorado. SPC did a great job outlining that 5% tornado risk area--if you take the percentage face value, perhaps you could say it overperformed?
A reminder to be aware going in to today of the 5% tornado risk area across N.TX and S.OK.
