Thanks, also,to Dot and Tom, who were instrumental in the success of this blogging event. You should definitely come fly with us!Yesterday brought some thunderstorm yumminess to our region, as the low pressure system containing blizzard-like conditions on its northern end produced severe weather down in the south. We didn't have any beautiful structure, such as what is pictured above, and it certainly wasn't the set-up that should be chased. The rain was coming down in buckets, which makes visibility a challenge. One storm cell that passed through my actual city was showing signs of rotation prior to arrival. In fact, it was actually tornado warned for a little while as it tracked northward. All that green, yellow and especially red, indicates rain... the red is especially heavy. When it's raining like that, seeing rotation in the clouds becomes especially difficult, if not impossible. We were actually experiencing the tail of that low pressure, in the form of a squall line of storm activity. It sort of whips around a wall of wind and rain, which can have some hail and tornadoes in the mix. There are some storm reports from yesterdays weather, mostly in the form of wind reports; however, there is talk of the damage actually being caused by a possible tornado. There is actually now a report of one confirmed EF0 tornado with an injury, which occurred in Gardi, GA.
