A powerful spring storm system is gathering strength over Missouri this morning, and will track northeastward into Southern Michigan tonight. The atmosphere in the storm's warm sector, south of the the warm front and east of the cold front, is very unstable, thanks to a flow of warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico at the surface, and very cold, dry air aloft. A powerful jet stream with winds winds aloft blowing at 150 mph will interact with this unstable air, and the strong change of wind speed and direction with height (wind shear) associated with this jet will impart a strong twisting motion to updrafts that from in this afternoon's thunderstorms along the cold front. These are ideal conditions for tornado formation, and a large tornado outbreak with damaging long-track tornadoes is likely late this afternoon in the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has placed Central Kentucky, Northern Tennessee, and a small portion of Southern Indiana in their "High Risk" area for severe weather Friday afternoon and evening, and is warning of the possibility of long-track significant tornadoes. While the conditions are not as dangerous as those we saw in 2011 during the May 21 - 25 Joplin, Missouri and late April Southeast U.S. tornado outbreaks, the potential exists for a punishing tornado assault with many more strong and violent tornadoes than occurred during the Leap Day outbreak. A number of severe thunderstorms with damaging winds have already formed this morning along the storm's warm front, in Missouri, Indiana, and Illinois. Consult our Severe Weather Page and Interactive Tornado Page to follow the storms.


Figure 1. NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has placed Central Kentucky, Northern Tennessee, and a small portion of Southern Indiana in their "High Risk" area for severe weather Friday afternoon. This is highest level of alert.


Figure 2. NOAA's Storm Prediction Center is calling for a 30% chance of tornadoes today within 25 miles of each point in the pink shaded area. Within the hatched area, there is a 10% or greater probability of strong EF-2 and EF-3 tornadoes, or violent EF-4 and EF-5 tornadoes within 25 miles of a point.

Leap Day tornado outbreak death toll hits 13
The cleanup continues today from the round of deadly tornadoes that pounded the Midwest on Leap Day, killing thirteen people. The outbreak began on February 28, when nine confirmed tornadoes touched down. A pair of EF-2 tornadoes hit Buffalo, Missouri and Harveyville, Kansas, with each twister causing one death. Also on that day, a weak EF-0 tornado moved over open fields near Gandy, Nebraska--the first February tornado in Nebraska since record keeping began in 1950. The outbreak continued on Leap Day, February 29, with 27 more confirmed tornadoes. Hardest hit was Harrisburg, Illinois, where a violent EF-4 tornado with 180 mph killed six, injured approximately 100, and damaged 200 homes and 25 businesses. The tornado cut a path 26.5 miles long and 275 yards wide across the town, according to the NWS damage survey. The only EF-3 tornado of the outbreak hit Asherville, Missouri that day, killing one person. The other deadly tornadoes of the outbreak included an EF-2 tornado that killed one person in Cassville, MO; an EF-2 that killed two in Monterey, Tennessee, and an EF-1 that killed one person in Smithville, Tennessee. An EF-2 tornado also plowed through downtown Branson, Missouri on Leap Day, injuring 33 people. An NWS storm survey found the tornado was 400 yards wide and carved a path 22 miles long. Overall, damage from the two-day tornado outbreak will run in the hundreds of millions, and could add up to the first billion-dollar weather disaster of 2012 in the U.S. The 36 confirmed tornadoes from the outbreak make it the second largest February tornado outbreak since record keeping began in 1950. The biggest February tornado outbreak occurred on February 5 - 6, 2008, when 92 tornadoes touched down.


Figure 3. Damage at the Branson, Missouri Hilton after the Leap Day tornado. The tornado blew out or cracked windows in 219 of the hotel rooms in the 12-story/295 room Hilton Branson Convention Center, and extensively damaged three of Branson’s 50 plus theatres--Americana Theater, Branson Variety Theater and Dick Clarks’ American Bandstand Theater.

Just did the tornado duck drill here in Chattanooga. Looks like the main part of the cell went north of the city. Well organized shelf cloud on the flank storms. Just a bit of wind here though and some sprinkles.

... A Tornado Warning remains in effect for southwestern Hamilton and
southeastern Franklin counties in south central Illinois... and
northeastern Williamson and northwestern Saline counties in southern
Illinois until 1215 PM CST...

At 1152 am CST... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated a
severe thunderstorm capable of producing a tornado. This dangerous
storm was located near Johnston City... moving east at 55 mph.

There have been multiple reports of rotation and possible funnel
clouds as the storm passed across Interstate 57 northeast of Herrin.

The rotation will move into extreme southern Franklin County near
Thompsonville by 1205 PM.

ncstorm "They need to cancelled School!"
165 ScottLincoln "Be careful with that thinking... look up Belvidere, IL."

"At 3:50pm, a violent tornado struck as children were boarding buses at BelvidereHighSchool. 12 out of the 16 buses were overturned or thrown, 24 people were killed -- 13 at the school -- and 410 injured."

169 Chapelhill "Schools can be a safer place than wooden structures or moble homes IF the students are sheltered properly."

Especially newer schools. There's been a strong tendency amongst states to upgrade building codes so that schools can be treated as disaster shelters of last resort... Cuz it's hard to argue against and even harder to vote against keeping children as safe as possible while they're in school custody.

Great job bloggers with observations / info / warnings.
Prayers / best wishes for all folks impacted in this outbreak.

Yes, does seem tornadic supercells (i.e. N AL) started a few hrs early today, however do recall model guidance / SPC / NWS forecasted a preceeding short wave developing / racing in the SW flow aloft could initiate activity well ahead in the warm unstable air mass over this area...

Again, safe wishes to all!

Very scary looking. As an aside, and maybe it might help someone sometime; when I was working the tornadoes in AL last year one man told me he survived (while almost all of his house got sucked away) by getting on the floor in his bathroom and wrapping his arms tightly around the base of the toilet. Said he wouldn't have survived if he hadn't done so.


My client was 6 miles form that tornado.

This new update has put me smack-dab in the middle of the 45% wind with hatched, and added me to hatched tornado area. Scary stuff!!!

Just checked on a friend who lives "near" Cookeville, he's okay, got out of school today, but he says he's heard of damage to the south.

AY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1030 AM CST FRI MAR 02 2012

VALID 021630Z - 031200Z

...THERE IS A HIGH RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM NRN TN ACROSS MUCH OF
KY...SRN INDIANA AND SWRN OH...

...THERE IS A MDT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM CNTRL MS AND AL...NRN GA
NWD INTO IL...IND...OH...WV...

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM THE LOWER/MID MS VALLEY
EWD TO THE APPALACHIANS AND INTO THE CAROLINAS...

...SYNOPSIS...
A STRONG UPPER TROUGH WITH VORTICITY CENTER CURRENTLY MOVING ACROSS
NRN MO WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP ENEWD ACROSS THE MS...TN AND OH
VALLEY REGIONS TODAY. STRONG WIND SHEAR WITH THIS TROUGH WILL
OVERSPREAD A LARGE AND EXPANDING WARM SECTOR FOR A WIDESPREAD SEVERE
WEATHER OUTBREAK TODAY INTO THIS EVENING.

SURFACE LOW WILL MOVE FROM S CNTRL IL NEWD ACROSS INDIANA AND
EVENTUALLY INTO LOWER MI TODAY. MEANWHILE...A COLD FRONT WILL TRAIL
SWWD ALONG THE MS RIVER DURING THE AFTERNOON...WHILE A WARM FRONT
LIFTS NWD ACROSS THE OH RIVER. SUBSTANTIAL MOISTURE AND WARM AIR
WILL EXIST E OF THE COLD FRONT AND WILL RAPIDLY REPLACE COOL SURFACE
AIR NOW OVER PORTIONS OF IND...KY AND OH.

*** OUTBREAK OF STRONG TORNADOES AND DAMAGING WINDS LIKELY TODAY
OVER A LARGE AREA ***

...SRN IL...IND...OH...KY...NRN TN...
STORMS ARE CURRENTLY INTENSIFYING OVER IL AND SERN MO NEAR THE LOW
AND ALONG THE DEVELOPING COLD FRONT. MEANWHILE...THE WARM FRONT HAS
RAPIDLY LIFTED NWD OVER THIS AREA...REPLACING COOL AIR WITH WARM AND
UNSTABLE AIR. FURTHER WARMING WILL OCCUR EWD INTO OH LATER TODAY.
THIS IS AN EXTREMELY FAVORABLE SETUP FOR TORNADIC SUPERCELLS AND
DAMAGING WINDS...NEAR THE LOW TRACK...AHEAD OF THE UPPER VORTICITY
CENTER AND NEAR THE RETREATING WARM FRONT. LOW LEVEL SHEAR WILL
REMAIN STRONG...AS WILL FORCING. STORMS CURRENTLY OVER SERN MO/IL
SHOULD THRIVE AS THEY MOVE ACROSS A WIDE AND DESTABILIZING WARM
SECTOR. THIS SHOULD FAVOR LONG LIVED AND FAST MOVING TORNADIC
SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF EXTENSIVE DAMAGE. THE THREAT IS EXPECTED TO
WANE LATE THIS EVENING NEAR THE ERN FRINGE OF THE MDT RISK AREA AS
LOW LEVELS COOL.

...ERN TN...MS/AL/GA...
TORNADIC SUPERCELLS ARE CURRENTLY ONGOING OVER NRN AL MOVING INTO
ERN TN AND PERHAPS CLIPPING FAR NWRN GA. THESE CELLS FORMED IN AN
AREA OF WARM ADVECTION...AND THE ENTIRE WARM SECTOR IS ALREADY
UNCAPPED. THE MOST CONCENTRATED AREAS OF STORMS SHOULD BE LATER THIS
AFTERNOON...ALONG AND EVEN AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT FROM LA INTO MS
AND AGAIN AL AND TN. DEEP LIFT WILL EASILY SUSTAIN STORMS IN A VERY
UNSTABLE ENVIRONMENT...AND LONG HODOGRAPHS WILL FAVOR SUPERCELLS
CAPABLE OF DAMAGING WINDS...LARGE HAIL...AND TORNADOES.

Quoting hydrus:
I just found out that our hospitals are in a "code black" alert. I was not aware of this code.

Code Black is usually for severe weather or tornado situations. In code black situations, the nursing staff will generally close all curtains/shutters, move patients away from windows (when possible), and be more mindful of the weather when doing rounds.

This new update has put me smack-dab in the middle of the 45% wind with hatched, and added me to hatched tornado area. Scary stuff!!!

Just checked on a friend who lives "near" Cookeville, he's okay, got out of school today, but he says he's heard of damage to the south.

AY 1 CONVECTIVE OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
1030 AM CST FRI MAR 02 2012

VALID 021630Z - 031200Z

...THERE IS A HIGH RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM NRN TN ACROSS MUCH OF
KY...SRN INDIANA AND SWRN OH...

...THERE IS A MDT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM CNTRL MS AND AL...NRN GA
NWD INTO IL...IND...OH...WV...

...THERE IS A SLGT RISK OF SVR TSTMS FROM THE LOWER/MID MS VALLEY
EWD TO THE APPALACHIANS AND INTO THE CAROLINAS...

...SYNOPSIS...
A STRONG UPPER TROUGH WITH VORTICITY CENTER CURRENTLY MOVING ACROSS
NRN MO WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP ENEWD ACROSS THE MS...TN AND OH
VALLEY REGIONS TODAY. STRONG WIND SHEAR WITH THIS TROUGH WILL
OVERSPREAD A LARGE AND EXPANDING WARM SECTOR FOR A WIDESPREAD SEVERE
WEATHER OUTBREAK TODAY INTO THIS EVENING.

SURFACE LOW WILL MOVE FROM S CNTRL IL NEWD ACROSS INDIANA AND
EVENTUALLY INTO LOWER MI TODAY. MEANWHILE...A COLD FRONT WILL TRAIL
SWWD ALONG THE MS RIVER DURING THE AFTERNOON...WHILE A WARM FRONT
LIFTS NWD ACROSS THE OH RIVER. SUBSTANTIAL MOISTURE AND WARM AIR
WILL EXIST E OF THE COLD FRONT AND WILL RAPIDLY REPLACE COOL SURFACE
AIR NOW OVER PORTIONS OF IND...KY AND OH.

*** OUTBREAK OF STRONG TORNADOES AND DAMAGING WINDS LIKELY TODAY
OVER A LARGE AREA ***

...SRN IL...IND...OH...KY...NRN TN...
STORMS ARE CURRENTLY INTENSIFYING OVER IL AND SERN MO NEAR THE LOW
AND ALONG THE DEVELOPING COLD FRONT. MEANWHILE...THE WARM FRONT HAS
RAPIDLY LIFTED NWD OVER THIS AREA...REPLACING COOL AIR WITH WARM AND
UNSTABLE AIR. FURTHER WARMING WILL OCCUR EWD INTO OH LATER TODAY.
THIS IS AN EXTREMELY FAVORABLE SETUP FOR TORNADIC SUPERCELLS AND
DAMAGING WINDS...NEAR THE LOW TRACK...AHEAD OF THE UPPER VORTICITY
CENTER AND NEAR THE RETREATING WARM FRONT. LOW LEVEL SHEAR WILL
REMAIN STRONG...AS WILL FORCING. STORMS CURRENTLY OVER SERN MO/IL
SHOULD THRIVE AS THEY MOVE ACROSS A WIDE AND DESTABILIZING WARM
SECTOR. THIS SHOULD FAVOR LONG LIVED AND FAST MOVING TORNADIC
SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF EXTENSIVE DAMAGE. THE THREAT IS EXPECTED TO
WANE LATE THIS EVENING NEAR THE ERN FRINGE OF THE MDT RISK AREA AS
LOW LEVELS COOL.

...ERN TN...MS/AL/GA...
TORNADIC SUPERCELLS ARE CURRENTLY ONGOING OVER NRN AL MOVING INTO
ERN TN AND PERHAPS CLIPPING FAR NWRN GA. THESE CELLS FORMED IN AN
AREA OF WARM ADVECTION...AND THE ENTIRE WARM SECTOR IS ALREADY
UNCAPPED. THE MOST CONCENTRATED AREAS OF STORMS SHOULD BE LATER THIS
AFTERNOON...ALONG AND EVEN AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT FROM LA INTO MS
AND AGAIN AL AND TN. DEEP LIFT WILL EASILY SUSTAIN STORMS IN A VERY
UNSTABLE ENVIRONMENT...AND LONG HODOGRAPHS WILL FAVOR SUPERCELLS
CAPABLE OF DAMAGING WINDS...LARGE HAIL...AND TORNADOES.

What is now presenting itself on radar as a potentially large, significant circulation with >100kts of shear just moved through Hixson, TN, and is entering Harrison, TN. Although begining to leave the central portion of metro Chattanooga, Hopewell/Cleveland, TN, area would be next in line.

This is a non-trivial circulation, indicating the high likelihood of a tornado on the ground already.
