The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?

Severe weather today, tomorrow, Friday, Saturday

Well, it looks like things are panning out nicely... With all the hype though, I was surprised to see only a slight risk for severe weather on the 3 day outlook, but each day through day 4 (Saturday, which has actually shifted eastward)presents a slight risk still.Day 1 (Today's) Outlook
Day 2 (Tomorrow's) Outlook
Day 3 (Friday's) Outlook
Day 4 (Saturday's--my weather) Outlook
Stuff is started to fire up now, but I have my sites set on Saturday for my neck of the woods... and really for the entire state of Georgia (and NC, and SC, 1/2 of TN, WV and VI... and then some. Looks like overnight, Friday night, Alabama will deal with a significant tornado threat, and then Saturday, it will shift our way.

1. A SIGNIFICANT MIDLEVEL LOW WILL LIFT FROM THE LOWER MS VALLEY NEWD INTO THE GREAT LAKES REGION
2. A TRAILING VORTICITY MAXIMUM TRANSLATES EWD THROUGH THE GULF COAST STATES TOWARD THE ATLANTIC COAST.
3. ASSOCIATED SURFACE LOW OVER THE LOWER OH VALLEY WILL OCCLUDE WHILE DEVELOPING NNEWD INTO THE GREAT LAKES.
4. MEANWHILE...TRAILING COLD FRONT WILL SURGE EWD THROUGH THE TN VALLEY AND GULF COAST STATES...REACHING THE MID/SERN ATLANTIC COAST TOWARD THE END OF D4 OR EARLY D5 /SUN MAR 29TH/.
5. A BROAD AND STRONG LLJ WILL RESULT IN THE RAPID NWD ADVECTION OF A MOIST AND UNSTABLE AIR MASS AHEAD OF COLD FRONT.
6. ANOTHER INTENSIFYING SYNOPTIC SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO DEVELOP OVER THE CNTRL U.S. ON D5.
My wonderful gtb and I plan to be out chasing this event on Saturday. Love it.
God's unseen presence comforts me,
I know He's always near;
And when life's storms besiege my soul,
He says, "My child, I'm here." -D.De Haan

  1. Dew, that's great news for you all on Saturday. We also have some good news in the SDS department. Potentially two snowstorms, with one being this weekend the other early next week. SWEET! :)

    Enjoy!

    Friend working in the JAN, MS office last night said that a huge tornado went through the city of Magee. Signature can't be seen in the Reflectivity, but shows up nicely in the velocity. She said based on initial damage reports coming into the office, they think it was at least an EF3.

    Survey team has already left to investigate, she's going home to bed.

    Will the Dew-Void strike again??
