Well We are looking at the latest data this morning and a few things have changed in the potental for severe weather . First off The one piece of energy has moved quicker then expected and a secondary piece now located south of az may not get in the plains for the main potental time for the moisture to occur and above that the surface energy which would have set the tornadic potental going is accelerating ne quickly and will be in the great lakes by evening , which has taken alot of the shear that would go with the jetstreak away so potental for tornadoes have dropped . Hail and damaging winds will now be the main threat to the midwest states this afternoon . All tho the large scale tornado threat has diminished , isolated tornadoes and gustnados may occur in the texas ok arkansas area this afternoon
DEWPOINTS WHERE ARE THEY AT THIS HR ... ABOVE 60 is RIPE FOR STORM INITIATION
so areas like austin dallas and ft worth are in the mid 60s dewpoint with SE wind meaning the llj is pumping moisture in
A SSE WIND OR SE WIND SHOWS THE LOW LEVEL JET . WHERE THAT BUMPS UP AGAINST A WESTERN WIND COMPONENT IS THE BEST LOCATION FOR SEVERE WEATHER
Beyond today the severe weather calms down . stay with liveweatherblogs.com for latest weather info
Well Mike, I see that you've written up something that is already looking great. Once you're finished, it will definitely be worthy of a peer review. Great work, you've not only expanded on the thoughts of others, taking everything a step further, but have also enlightened a multitude of young people and people new to the love of weather, or not new, but not this far along yet and working toward becoming more advanced in their knowledge, that this occurs. I'm sure by the time that you are finished, this is going to be a great work on the fact that there is a strong correlation between slowing/stalling gravity waves and EF-5 tornadic development.
