Weekend TOR-CONs..

Post  BackyardBirdGardner on 5/21/2011, 11:22 pm

Guys, I just saw the outbreak entering our region from Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa. So, I thought I'd put these up for tomorrow and Monday. Note: Eastern Kansas was only a 4 today, but people are seeing whopper storms around the KC area. There can still be a severe outbreak with tornadoes with low TOR-CONs. There just may not be a widespread outbreak.
Forecast for Sunday, May 22



WI south - 4
WI central - 3
MI lower - 2 to 3
IL west and north - 4
IL rest - 2 to 3
IA east - 3 to 4
MO - 3 to 4
KS southeast - 4
AR - 3 to 4
OK east and south-central - 4
TX northeast - 2 to 3
TX central - 2 to 3
TN - 2
IN - 2
KY - 2
PA central - 2
VA - 2
OH - 2
other areas - less than 2

Forecast for Monday, May 23



OK north-central - 5
KS southeast - 4
MO central - 4
OH north - 3

Looks like Missouri took the worst this time. Hope any MO gardeners are ok.

I have an incredibly good friend in Joplin. He kept me very straight in college. It took years to figure out he was my influence....and I his. We made a great blend.

Anywhoo, he lives in Joplin and his wife works at St.John's, the hospital that was severely damaged.

I have yet to hear from him. I keep wondering how they are, and I pray it wasn't her shift to work last night.

Here's the continued Monday TORCONs...
Forecast for Monday, May 23



PA west and central - 2-3
NY west - 2
MI southeast - 2
OH - 4
WV - 2 to 3
IN east and south�? - 4
KY - 2 to 3
VA southwest - 2
MO south and central - 4
IL south and central - 4
AR north and central - 3
OK west except panhandle - 5
OK central -4
OK east - 3 to 4
KS south-central,southeast - 4
KS northeast - 2
KS west - 3
TX north-central - 3
other areas - less than 2


It looks like another active pattern is setting up over the midwest. Look for periods of storms the next few days. Keep those eyes on the skies!

FYI, Joplin was a 4 yesterday. And, that tornado will likely be an EF4 or EF5 once the NWS gets over to look at things. The TORCON numbers don't mean a tornado is or is not likely. TORCONs are telling you how widespread the outbreak will be. There is only a slight correlation between widespread outbreaks and how likely you are to be affected.

We had something go over head this AM, not sure what it was exactly. Heard thunder in the distance, breeze picked up, no lightening, but a few sprinkles. Then as I was cleaning up our chore mess (putting things up the kids SAID they did) I heard thunder right smack dab above my head, never heard that before, not really loud, just a rumble, like a bowling ball. There were dark grey, not black, clouds right above us, not swirling, just kinda moving along, but a bunch of rumbling in those clouds. I did not stick around long to see what it was, I finished up and went in, nothing happened, just kinda spooky.

BBG, you can go here https://safeandwell.communityos.org/cms/index.php and search to see if your friend has checked in. This is the Red Cross's site.
