April in January: spring-like severe weather and record warmth in the Midwest

The calendar says its January, but the atmosphere looks more like April over the Midwest U.S., where a spring-like surge of warm air is interacting with a strong low pressure system to create a dangerous severe weather situation. The warm air surging northwards has already broken high temperature records for the date in Chicago, where the mercury hit 61°F at 7 am CST; a tornado watch is posted for portions of Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas. Golf-ball sized hail fell at three locations in Oklahoma already this morning, and a wind gust of 75 mph was reported in a thunderstorm near Omega, Oklahoma. NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has placed portions of Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, Missouri, Alabama, Oklahoma, Illinois, Indiana, and Mississippi in their "Moderate Risk" region for severe weather on Tuesday. This is the first "Moderate Risk" forecast issued during 2013. The primary threat will be damaging thunderstorm winds, but we will also see tornadoes, with the potential for a few strong EF-2 and EF-3 twisters. The surge of warm moving northwards ahead of the cold front spawning today's severe weather is bringing in warmth unprecedented for January in some locations. Monday was the hottest January day on record in Topeka, Kansas, which hit 77°F. That's 36°F above average. and 3° warmer than their previous highest January temperature. Columbia, Missouri tied its all-time warmest January temperature, 77°. Kansas City (74°F) and Wichita (74°F) both fell 1° short of tying their all-time January hottest temperature records. Balloon soundings of the atmosphere taken last night showed moisture levels in the top 5% for a January day over much of the Midwest, and several stations may set all-time rainiest January day records today. One candidate is Flint Michigan, where a heavy thunderstorm moved in at 7:30 am, dumping 0.75" of rain. With another round of thunderstorms expected tonight, Flint is poised to break its record for rainiest January day in its history--the 1.34" that fell on January 18, 1949.


Figure 1. A crazy weather day for the U.S.: our severe weather map from 10 am EST Tuesday, January 29. Severe thunderstorms were occurring in Kansas and Oklahoma, flood watches were posted for Illinois, Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Wisconsin, and winter weather advisories, high wind advisories, and fire weather advisories were posted in other locations.


Figure 2. NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has placed portions of Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Tennessee, Missouri, Alabama, Oklahoma, Illinois, Indiana, and Mississippi in their "Moderate Risk" region for severe weather on Tuesday. This is the first "Moderate Risk" forecast issued during 2013.

Chicago's wild January weather ride continues
Chicago's craziest January in memory got even stranger today, when a surge of warm air pushed the temperature to 61°F at 7 am, breaking the previous high temperature record of 59°F for the date. Spring-like thunderstorms, accompanied by temperatures in the mid-60s are expected this afternoon--just a week after the city recorded a high temperature of 11°F and a low of -1°F (on January 22nd.) Chicago has been above 65°F in January just once in its history--on January 25, 1950, when the mercury hit 67°F. The average January high in the Windy City is 30°F, and today will be the 4th day the city has been 20 or more degrees warmer than that during January 2013. The roller coaster goes back downhill after the cold front moves through early on Wednesday, though--Chicago's high on Friday is expected to be near 15°F, with a morning low around 5°F. Chicago has also experienced record low snowfall this winter; the city got it's first 1-inch snowstorm of the season on Friday, when 1.1" fell at O'Hare Airport. This was the latest first 1-inch snow in city history, and ended a 335-day streak without a 1-inch snowstorm, the longest such streak since records began in 1872. Chicago has managed just 2.9" of snow during the winter of 2012 - 2013, which is 16" below average.

Chicago's roller coaster of temperatures doesn't compare, though, to what happened in Nowata, Oklahoma during the period February 10 - 17, 2011. A cold air mass combined with a fresh snow pack and calm winds allowed Nowata to hit a low of -31°F on February 10, 2011--the all-time coldest temperature ever recorded in Oklahoma. Gradual warming accelerated over the next week, and temperatures peaked at a record high of 79 degrees on February 17. According to the National Weather Service in Tulsa, Okla., this 110-degree temperature rise was the greatest change within seven days in Oklahoma history.


Video 1. In this video done by Peter Sinclair for the Yale Forum on Climate Change, I offer my thoughts on the roller coaster ride of temperatures in Michigan this winter, look back at the remarkable weather of 2012, and discuss what 2013 might bring. My main concern: drought.

Al Gore defends his sale of Current TV to Al Jezeera.... "GORE: I certainly understand that criticism. I disagree with it. I think Al Jazeera has, obviously, long since established itself as a really distinguished and effective news gathering organization. And by the way, its climate coverage has been far more extensive and high-quality than any of the networks here."

Here's the same map Dr. Masters posted, but 2.5 hours later... things are heating up.





I was just thinking those in Tornado Alley might hope for "corn storms" in much the same way coastal folks hope for "fish storms." In any case, I hope any tornadoes that spawn today thread a path through open fields and leave the houses and communities alone.

StL already 68, I'm not quite that high yet, 63, 62 dew pt, 61 was low so far. Avg wind S at 10 w/ 30 gust so far. Clouds should help keep heating down, but sure we'll have an interesting afternoon. Glad I found out my sump pump had gone out before this arrived! New one installed last night. If get 2 I'll need it.


Big bow beginning to form on that line, in connection with a tornado warning. Heads up as it seems to be traveling along and just north of I-44 up to St. Louis.

Winter this year in WI, has been a bazaar one and nothing like what I grew up with. Numerous thunderstorms last night, with almost 3/4" rain in the gauge this morning. The driveway is one massive skating rink, covered with water. (We call it the Silo Glacier) Temp hovering around 50. Just saw some midges (insects) flying about. They better go back to hibernating, as tomorrow it will be back down to 20 and snow. For all those in the watch/warning areas, stay safe!

Anyone got the current SST anomalies for the Gulf of Mexico? I'm imagining quite a few of us in the South can't help but be thinking about the horrible tornado season of 2011 right now.

But the first-half 2011 tornado season was greatly enhanced by much-warmer-than-normal temps in the GOM that winter and spring. Last I heard -- just a couple days ago -- waters off my immediate area (SW Florida) were less than 1 degree F. warmer than normal. (I can't guess for the rest of the Gulf at the moment!)

As a side note, I would love a bit of discussion as to how that could interact with the anticipated drought conditions in much of the US this year. It would seem to me that if the Gulf is not running warmer than normal, that could reduce the total amount of vapor available for any showers/storms that do develop.

....Please stay safe this week, Everybody!

SUMMARY...THE THREAT FOR SVR THUNDERSTORMS INCLUDING DMGG WINDS AND
TORNADOES CONTINUES ACROSS WW6.

DISCUSSION...A SQUALL LINE WITH EMBEDDED BOWING SEGMENTS EXTENDS
FROM CNTRL MO SWWD INTO S-CNTRL OK AS OF 17Z. AHEAD OF THE
LINE...MARGINAL INSTABILITY EXISTS AMIDST STRONG VERTICAL
SHEAR...WITH 0-1-KM SRH AROUND 425 M2/S2 AND OVER 60 KT OF DEEP
SHEAR PER SGF VWP. THIS WILL MAINTAIN ORGANIZED STORM STRUCTURES --
BOWS AND PERHAPS SUPERCELLS -- EMBEDDED WITHIN THE LINE. THESE WILL
BE CAPABLE OF DMGG WINDS AND TORNADOES...ESPECIALLY WITH CONVECTION
NOT UNDERCUT BY THE OUTFLOW BOUNDARY ACCOMPANYING THE SQUALL LINE.
ADDITIONAL CONVECTION IS DEVELOPING AHEAD THE LINE ACROSS NERN
OK...NWRN AR...AND SWRN MO INVOF RICHER LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE -- I.E.
LOWER 60S DEWPOINTS. IN THIS AREA...THE TORNADO THREAT WOULD
INCREASE IF THESE STORMS BECOME SFC BASED AND EXHIBIT SEMI-DISCRETE
CONVECTIVE MODES. THE SVR THREAT WILL BE NIL BEHIND THE SQUALL LINE.

"NASA Rocket to Spark Light Show Over US East Coast Tonight."

"The bright phenomenon will be caused by an experiment aboard a NASA sounding rocket. As part the mission, the rocket will release a chemical tracer that should create two bright, red-colored lithium vapor trails in space that may be seen by observers across the mid-Atlantic region, and possibly from even further away."

AREAS AFFECTED...CNTRL INTO N CNTRL TX

CONCERNING...SEVERE POTENTIAL...WATCH LIKELY

VALID 291637Z - 291730Z

PROBABILITY OF WATCH ISSUANCE...80 PERCENT

SUMMARY...STORMS SHOULD CONTINUE TO INCREASE ALONG THE COLD FRONT
WITH LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS THE MAIN THREATS.

DISCUSSION...STORMS CONTINUE TO FORM ALONG THE COLD FRONT EXTENDING
FROM NEAR SAN ANGELO NNEWD INTO SRN OK. WHILE DEEP LAYER SHEAR IS
VERY STRONG WITH LONG HODOGRAPHS...LOW LEVEL SHEAR IS MUCH WEAKER
DUE TO PLACEMENT OF THE LOW LEVEL JET FARTHER E. HOWEVER...OVERALL
LAPSE RATE PROFILES ARE STEEPER NEAR THE COLD FRONT...AND HEATING
WILL CONTINUE TO DESTABILIZE THE AIR MASS.

SUPERCELLS AND/OR SMALL BOWS APPEAR LIKELY AS STORMS CONTINUE TO

It's cloudy over all of Arkansas right now, the entire state, actually.

Without the sun, I can't see the severe outbreak being widespread, and time is running out for the sun to pop out, if it ever does, which I doubt.

However, that three tailed front as I like to call them, is ominous. They're usually associated with tornadoes, because of the energy wrapped around the surface low, and aloft.

Really cool to see Dr. Forbes Torcon Index become so popular.....It's a pretty good model he developed, based on all of his years of experience with SPC, and he rolled it out to the general public on TWC......He is my favorite personality on TWC at the moment........Right to the point and no hype.
