First High Risk of the 2010 Season

24 Apr 2010, 12:01 pm

It has already been a busy morning at WeatherNation…. I was tracking tornadoes across Mississippi.  I would have to say that 8 times out of 10, if you see a strong hook echo in a radar signature… it’s probably on the ground folks.   That is exactly what happened this morning… even before peak heating:

This is just the beginning… here is the outlook from SPC today:

JC_BLOG1 Directly from the SPC:

   A POTENTIALLY SIGNIFICANT SEVERE WEATHER OUTBREAK RESULTING FROM
   INCREASINGLY VOLATILE ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS WILL LIKELY INCLUDE AN
   INCREASING AND CONCENTRATED THREAT FOR TORNADOES...LARGE HAIL...AND
   DAMAGING WINDS.  THE AREAS MOST LIKELY TO BE AFFECTED BY THIS
   ACTIVITY WILL BE ACROSS THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI RIVER VALLEY BEGINNING
   THIS MORNING INTO THE AFTERNOON AND SPREADING NORTHEASTWARD INTO THE
   TENNESSEE RIVER VALLEY AND MID SOUTH THIS AFTERNOON AND INTO THE
   NIGHTTIME HOURS.  VERY STRONG WINDS ALOFT CHANGING DIRECTION WITH
   HEIGHT WILL SUPPORT THE POSSIBILITY FOR A FEW STRONG AND POTENTIALLY
   VIOLENT LONG TRACK TORNADOES ACROSS THIS AREA.
