Posted on 04/26/2014 4:04:48 PM PDT by ilovesarah2012
An outbreak of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes could occur from this weekend through early next week as a potent storm system slowly pushes east across the nation. Locations from the Plains into the Mississippi Valley, Ohio Valley and parts of the South could see severe weather on one or multiple days.
This widespread threat of severe weather begins Saturday in the Plains. If you are in one of regions affected, be sure you have a plan to get the latest weather information multiple times a day. The specific forecasts for each day are below.

I’m expecting large hail here by midnight.
I don’t follow national weather much but looks like these storms will impact a large segment of the nation. I am in SC and they are forecasting bad storms here Monday/Tuesday.
Heads up, everyone!
National Weather Service Storm Prediction Center Outlook:
Tornado Watch being considered now for parts of northern Texas and southwest Oklahoma.
Oops, a link to it might help.
Sounds like it’s gonna be a bad few days. Hope everyone stays safe.
I’ve been lurking on some of the weather forums and the meteorologists there are very worried about Arkansas on Monday. It’s going to be bad.
Well, at least it’s not likely to be as bad as the UK Daily Mail reported:
“The twisters may touch down in the highly populated metro areas of Dallas, Kansas City and Omaha before shifting east towards St Louis, Memphis, Nashville and Baton Rouge, NOAA said.”
Shaking my head at that.
Too cold up here in WI for tornados. It’s been a cold spring.
I’m guessing the hype is about extreme weather events caused by climate change.
Because, you know, except for every year about this time, this is the worst outbreak of extreme weather EVER! I know ‘cause I saw it on Twitter.
Probably from this crap that is whistling across northern Arizona right now. The wind is crazy.
In southern Arizona and we are having super ugly winds today. Its very cold and lots of dust. Visibility ain’t so hot.
So tornadoes hate populated areas? They hunt them like wolf packs after elk.
Got links? My folks are in NE AR.....Thanks
Arkansas needs to be worried tomorrow (Sunday) not so much on Monday...

SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO DEVELOP SUNDAY AFTERNOON IN
EASTERN OKLAHOMA...LIKELY EAST OF A LINE FROM BARTLESVILLE TO

WHILE THERE REMAINS SOME UNCERTAINTY RELATING TO THE SPECIFIC AREAS

IF YOU ARE IN ARKANSAS OR EXTREME EASTERN OKLAHOMA YOU SHOULD USE

DONE NOT ONLY FOR YOUR HOME...BUT ALSO FOR WHERE YOU EXPECT TO BE

You guys in harm’s way,stay safe.
Tornadoes are frightening.
The areas in red have the highest threat of strong/long track tornadoes. This area in red(Moderate Risk) may be upgraded to a High Risk by tomorrow...Your folks should pay careful attention.
Yes...the upper level low pressure over Arizona will be the “kicker” for the severe weather.
They sure worded that wrong! LOL The Storm Prediction Center does outline which large metropolitan centers are in the risk area and how many millions of folks may be affected.
Thanks for the link. Hoping for the best tomorrow.
More proof of climate change!
Bad winds last night about 2 am till dawn here in SoCal. Lots of rain too. It was a fast moving storm. Cold here today too.
The first round of heavy rain is here now (Topeka, Kansas the eastern part of the state) The area forecast discussion says the “discreet supercells” will be here in a few hours.
