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?

Tornado watch close to home

When they said this system would likely "squall out", they meant it! The tail of this monstrous blizzard forming low spans from Massachusetts into the Gulf of Mexico. It's a thin shred of a line, but embedded within it are ferocious winds, heavy rain, lightning, and a potential for tornadoes. Currently, there is a wild couple of tornado watch boxes covering portions of the southeastern US,specifically, Georgia and South Carolina.The one closest to my proximity is an oddly shaped watch box, which stops just to my north. We did have some clearing this morning, where I actually saw the moon, and the temps started out in the 70's. That gives the much needed heated to offer up the instability. The squall breaks apart just to our west, but I think potential might exist for isolated supercells ahead of the line. People located within the general vicinity of the red boxes need to be mindful of rapidly changing conditions and be ready to get into a safe spot, should the need arise.

Have a safe day!
