Hurricane Dora may become a major hurricane...

THIS IS ONLY A POSSIBILITY:

Hurricane Dora is the first Hurricane of the 2017 Pacific Hurricane Season, it is also the first hurricane obversed by GOES-16. Hurricane Dora has a 50-70% chance of becoming a Category 3+ hurricane in my opinion. Gusts are currently in the Category 2 hurricane range, even though it is only rated a Category 1, Dora will likely become a Category 2, and possibly become a Category 3/4, looking at it's eye I would not be surprised if it is already a Cat 2 or Cat 3. Please stay tuned for further updates from the NoJO Hurricane Center.

June 17-18, 2017 - My First Storm Chase

On Tuesday, June 13, the Storm Prediction Center had issued a 15% chance of severe thunderstorms for my area of southwestern Ontario, and by June 15 a Slight risk had been issued based on a 15% risk of damaging wind gusts. In the morning of Saturday, June 17, that risk was downgraded to a Marginal risk, but CAPE values were high enough that I started thinking about driving out to see if I could snag some hail.

I called three of my fellow severe weather nuts at Brock University - Dylan, Emily, and Josh, and all three of them agreed to go chasing. We voted on whether to target the London, Ontario area or the Toronto area. I voted for London, but all three of the others voted for Toronto, so I was forced to shut up and jump on the bandwagon.

Storm-Rider Tornadoes

Alissa The Wise Wolf has asked me to do research on the science of severe weather, which is mainly what my novel is about. However I need to do more digging into tornadogenesis, and I'm not very good with science . . . or math.

The novel takes place in Minneapolis in 2036. I have a wiki page called "2036 Upper Midwest Tornado Sequence" that I been working on for about a week now. A few of the tornadoes in the page are also part of my book. I have been working on the book for the last three years with no help, and I have been trying to produce a novel about tornadoes for as long as I can remember.

Since it seems like I have all the beginning events of the book in place, I joined Hypothetical Tornadoes because I saw an opportunity to expand on …

June 16, 1992: the Chandler–Lake Wilson tornado

June 16, 1992 is a date which carries little weight for many outside of the tiny Minnesota towns of Chandler and Lake Wilson. However, today marks 25 years that those two communities were slammed by a F5 tornado in the midst of a widespread tornado outbreak that produced the 5th largest two-day tornado count on record, with 123 tornadoes touching down between June 15 and June 16. Touching down just after 5 PM, intense damage was visible early on in this tornado's track just east of Leota not long after the twister's inception. The tornado completely destroyed a two house farmstead; where the grass was partially scoured, a basement was left bare and the trees, utility poles and buildings were all stripped bare or absent entirely as it stre…

May 27, 2017 outlook

OK, so a Moderate Risk of severe weather has been issued on the 0600 UTC SPC outlook, which is mentioning the possibility of several severe wind gusts, large to very large hail, and a few tornadoes.

The Moderate Risk area covers most of MO, as well as parts of KS, OK, AR, TN, KY and IN. Within this area, there is a High (45%) risk of severe wind gusts, a High (45%) risk of large to very large hail, and a Slight (10%) risk of tornadoes. The Enhanced Risk entirely surrounds the Moderate area, as usual, and also covers parts of IL, as well as the remainder of TN. The Slight Risk covers the areas around the Moderate and Enhanced Risks, and goes up into the eastern coast.

May 27, 1997–Central Texas tornadoes

Today marks 20 years to the day that mother nature conspired to wipe 50 homes and 27 lives off of the face of the Earth. It was on this date in 1997 that a storm that would define the "5" rating in tornadoes, and the most recent tornado to attain such intensity in Texas. On the afternoon of May 27, 1997, multiple severe thunderstorms exploded into the afternoon sky from the highly unstable conditions that had permeated all morning. Several of these storms began unexpectedly drifting to the southwest under the influence of a passing "gravity wave" (outflow boundary) from a dying storm system around the Oklahoma/Arkansas border. Hugging a dry line that helped sustain this growing supercell by allowing it to constantly regenerate its updraft,…

Yep, this series is still going, and remains useful I'm finding, so here goes. On this day, in 2008, a massive tornado, alter rated EF5, swept away a large portion of the city of Parkersburg, Iowa, killing 7 people, and causing several hundred million Dollars in damages in the process.

May 18, 2017 outlook

Well, I'd like to say that today has certainly lived up to my expectations. A High Risk of severe weather has been issued, with this risk containing the possibility for several strong, long track tornadoes also included in this risk.

The High Risk includes parts of KS and OK, where the SPC specifically says "...A tornado outbreak is likely across parts of the southern and central Plains today and tonight...", which is of particular concern considering the amount of highly populated areas within this risk area. Within the High Risk area, there is a High Risk (30%) chance for tornadoes, a Moderate Risk (30%) for severe wind gusts, and a High Risk (45%) for large or very large hail.

OK, this post is going to be mainly about last night, but I'll start with the outlook first, as it makes sense to do so.

An Enhanced Risk is currently in effect for IA, WI and MN. This is followed by the standard Slight and Marginal Risks.

Anyway, on to the biggest part of the post. 2 very large, violent and long lived tornadoes occurred last night, in Elk City, OK and Oklahoma, WI. Both of these storms caused heavy damage, injury totals, and 1 death each.

In Elk City, OK, the tornado was multiple vortex in nature, and completely debarked trees within the neighbourhoods hit hardest. This is a sign of EF4 damage, however, buildings appear to have taken high end EF3 to low end EF4 damage in the worst cases.

Alrighty, I know it's been a while since I last did an outlook blog, but today is a Moderate Risk, so it is needed.

The Moderate Risk area is located across parts of OK and TX, surrounded by a large Enhanced Risk area that goes up into the OH Valley. this is surrounded by the usual Slight Risk area. Within the Moderate Risk area, there is a Moderate (15%) risk of tornadoes, a Moderate Risk (30%) for severe wind gusts, and a High Risk (45%) chance of large to very large hail.

It is worth noting that a Particularly Dangerous Situation Tornado Watch was issued not long ago, which is for the entire Moderate Risk area, as well as a significant portion of the surrounding Enhanced Risk area.

May 11 - The Darkest Day

On this day in history, not one, but two F5-rated tornadoes cut through two Texas cities, leaving complete devastation and very high death tolls in their paths. One of these tornadoes ties as the deadliest in Texas state history, destroying over a third of the city of Waco, while the other was arguably one of the most violent in Texas, tearing through Lubbock exactly 17 years later.

Below I'll compare the two tornadoes, and do my own crude assessment of their strength based on today's rating standards.


The Waco, Texas F5 - May 11, 1953

Monday, May 11, 1953 dawned humid and sunny over the city of Waco. To the south, outflow boundaries from a few scattered thunderstorms from the previous night were developing, and by early afternoon, a dry line…

Why does the Tropical Storm icon always have a "hurricane style" eye?

Ok, the Tropical Storm icon has a hurricane style eye of some sorts, the TS icon is always missing the middle...even the official National Hurricane Center does this!!

Remembering the 1975 Omaha, Nebraska tornadoes

On this day in 1975, an outbreak of tornadoes hit the states of Louisiana, Taxas, Mississippi, South Dakota, Nebraska and Iowa with 36 confirmed tornadoes reported by the NWS.

By far the most significant of these, and the namesake of the outbreak, was the F4 tornado that tore through parts of downtown Omaha, Nebraska. The tornado initially touched down in Sarpy county, before passing through Douglas County and crossing over I-80 into Omaha. Along the tornadoes path, severe damage to buildings was noted, including several that were completely levelled, and thousands of trees were either snapped or debarked. This tornado was the cause of 3 fatalities during the outbreak.

The other significant tornado of the outbreak was another F4, which struc…

May 4, 2003; 2007

Today marks a date in which tornadoes changed many lives in their respective years of occurrence. On this day in 2003, 86 tornadoes touched down on the most prolific day of what would become the record for the most tornadoes recorded in a single period of continuous activity (401). Four F4 tornadoes were recorded among that number: one in and around Franklin, Kansas; two in Kansas City, Missouri; and another in Jackson, Tennessee. The Franklin tornado killed one; the first Kansas City tornado killed two; and the Jackson tornado killed eleven, and each incurred millions in damages.


However, the largest event on this date was what took a city in the night. In what today makes only a decade ago, the Greensburg, Kansas tornado swept through the…

OK, I'll start a little differently today, with a little history. On this day back in 1999, an F5 tornado ripped through parts of Bridge Creek and Moore, Oklahoma, killing 36 people, injuring 583 others, and causing $1 billion in damages, which was a record at the time. Another record set by this tornado was the highest wind observed on earth, when Joshua Wurman, a storm chaser/tornado expert veteran, used his Dopplar on Wheels to measure the 318 mph winds about 100 meters off the ground.

Now, onto the present, and todays outlook. An Enhanced Risk is now in effect for all of Louisiana, as well as parts of Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi. A Slight Risk surrounds this area, followed by the Marginal as always. The main risks are expected to be…

Quick update on Canton

OK, for those have been following the updates on Canton, I have another one now.

A preliminary damage survey was done yesterday, which has concluded mid range EF4 damage for the western Canton tornado. Whether this gets raised to EF5 depends on certain factors. Whilst some buildings did get swept away by the tornado, untethered buildings that get swept away entirely can only be rated at best high end EF4, whilst tethered buildings tend to get to get the EF5 rating. Also, due to lack of scouring in the worst damaged areas as well, this also likely indicates an EF4 tornado at most. The winds for this tornado have a preliminary 180 mph estimate, or mid range EF4.

The tornado that passed through downtown Canton is still currently on its EF3 prel…

Devastation in Canton Texas following tornadoes

First if all, yes ive pluralised tornadoes here, as as many as 3 confirmed tornadoes hit Canton, Texas last night and into the early hours of this morning. Having watched one live feed during the event, devastation was immediately evident, but after seeing other snippets of streaming from other teams in the same area, I can say one thing for certain. Horrific damage has occurred in Canton, with as many as 49 injuries reported, and 7 confirmed fatalities so far.

The first tornado touched down about 1930 CDT, and went on for more than 2 hours before finally lifting. This twister was well over a mile wide, and was powerful enough to lift buildings off foundations in the areas worst affected. Cars are reported as being thrown huge distances, bu…

OK, so theres yet another Enhanced Risk out for todays outlook it seems. Numerous severe thunderstorms are expected, which may pose a risk of there being large hail, damaging winds, and even a few tornadoes could be possible.

The Enhanced Risk goes from mid TX up into parts of LA, OK, most of AR, and some of KS. This is surrounded by the usual Slight Risk area, which goes from around the Enhanced Risk area into parts of TN, KY, IL and OH.

It is worth noting that the 5% chance for tornadoes could be a little conservative based on the SPC forecasts for a 30% risk of both large hail, and damaging winds, but we will see later on today what happens.

Dangerous tornado outbreak possible next week

OK, this one might take some time, but here it goes. Model runs are suggesting a potent midway trough will be present across the four corner states. It is worth noting that although the Euro and GFS models, whilst showing different intensities of the trough and locations, both show a very moist environment over the four corners states of TX, OK,NE and AR.

The Euro is particularly consistent with this scenario, ejecting a vigorous shortwave trough from the central plains states. The GFS, on the other hand, keeps the trough going into the the four corners states. Both models, however, collide a very moist airmass with a well developed dryline by the afternoon of Thursday, April 28, and besides the difference between the modelling solutions, b…

It was founded in Princeton, Indiana and is headquarted in Indianapolis, Indiana...on March 2 they announced that they were filing for chapter 11 bankruptcy and they were closing 88 of there 226 stores, this was upgraded a month later to ALL 226 stores, I think one of the reasons is too common sales (There was sale for opening in south FL)...my local hhgregg opened in 1987...and is location #0009 (It was founded in the 60's) hhgregg will start their closing sales today. (RIP hhgregg)

April 5, 2017 outlook

OK. Today's outlook is of particular concern, so we will jump straight into it. A Moderate Risk is in effect for most of GA, as well as parts of AL, TN, SC and KY. It is also worth mentioning that some areas of GA and AL have the potential to be upgraded to High Risk later in the day if the expected outbreak does indeed materialise.

An Enhanced Risk surrounds the Moderate area, covering parts of IN, OH, NC, and FL. This is surrounded by the usual Slight and Marginal Risk areas.

Today's forecast is calling for a likely hood of an outbreak of severe thunderstorms from the TN and OH Valleys, with the potential for supercell development. Within the expected supercells, tornadoes are expected to be strong and/or long lived, being able to produce …

April 4, 2017 outlook

OK, straight into todays outlook. There is a double Enhanced Risk today, one concerning tornadoes, the other large hail. Both areas have a potential for damaging winds.

The first area, over parts of northeast OK, southeast KS, and far southwestern MO, holds a 30% chance of significant large hail, as well as a 10% chance of damaging winds. There also appears to be a 2% probability of tornadoes, but this isnt as much of a concern as it has been in recent outlooks. As usual, there is the Slight Risk that surrounds this area, along with the Marginal.

The second, more significant Enhanced Risk area lies across eastern central MS and western central AL, and has a 10% chance of tornadoes relating to severe thunderstorms. These storms also have a 15…

April 3, 2017 outlook

Today's Moderate Risk has been downgraded to Enhanced (at least for now), as thunderstorm activity has become rather disorganised. The 0830 UTC outlook called for the possibility of a large area of severe thunderstorms capable of severe conditions to develop from the central Gulf Coast to the Carolinas.

It is worth noting that scattered damaging winds and tornadoes are expected, and after looking at radar this morning, there is potential for today to once again become a Moderate Risk.

Now, onto the usual tornado news from the previous day. Two large, very destructive tornadoes hit Alexandria, LA and the cities of Jena and Midway, LA. Both of these significant tornadoes caused tornado emergencies, and both have caused significant damages.

I'll…

April 2, 2017 outlook

I'll jump right in on this post, as its very important to do so. A Moderate Risk of severe thunderstorms, most of which are expected to be dangerous, is forecast for today and tonight across the Gulf Coasts of TX and LA. The I20 corridor in particular is at risk, with a concentrated area of significant damaging winds, and several strong/intense tornadoes expected, as well as the threat for very large hail.

As I write this post, there is already a tornado watch out for parts of TX, with a low potential of EF2+ tornadoes. Just to bring to light how serious this is, its only just after 0400 CDT. A possible tornado was located on radar near Vance, moving NE at 30 mph.

Todays setup is too complex to describe here, but the full synopsis is availab…

But, yes folks, i've been gone for a good while again, which i do see resulted in a complete demotion (which isnt fair.. *cough* layten *cough*).. remember the period a while ago in which my life had become so unpredictable i had to take time off and divert my attention elsewhere?

Well, you dont need to be an expert to know that it's happened again.. only worse..

Now, i have been able to get A Break today.. but i've noticed my life seems to be getting more Hectic and Unpredictable.. plus, i seem to kinda forget about other things.. namely this..

Im not kidding, it's really been that bad for me..
