A powerful tornado ripped through Adairsville, Georgia, northwest of Atlanta, at 11:19 am EST this morning, killing at least one person in a mobile home park. The tornado caused major structural damage in the downtown district, and overturned approximately 100 cars on I-75 near Exit 306 (see eyewitness video here, with swear words.) Eight injuries, some serious, are also being reported from a tornado just southeast of Calhoun, GA around 11:30am EST. NOAA's Storm Prediction Center has placed most of the Southeast in their "Slight Risk" region for severe weather for Wednesday, a step down from the "Moderate Risk" potential issued on Tuesday for the Midwest. Three other tornadoes have hit Georgia today, and there were 79 reports of wind damage due to high winds as of 2 pm EST along the cold front that triggered today's severe weather, from Alabama to Pennsylvania. Tornado watches continue for a wide swath of the Southeast this afternoon, from Alabama to North Carolina.

Record string of 219 days without a tornado death ends
Today's fatality ends the longest continuous stretch without a tornado death ever recorded in the U.S.--219 days. The last time the U.S. saw a tornado death was at Venus in Highlands County, Florida, from an EF-0 tornado associated with Tropical Storm Debby on June 24, 2012. The previous record was 197 straight days without a tornado death, which ended on February 28, 1987. Part of the reason for the long stretch without a tornado death during 2012 - 2013 was the relative lack of tornadoes. According to NOAA's Storm Prediction Center (SPC), the total number of tornadoes during 2012 was just 936. This is the first time since 2002 that fewer than 1000 tornadoes have been recorded. The jet stream was positioned unusually far north in Canada during much of 2012, which brought drought to much of Tornado Alley. It's tough to get tornadoes when you're experiencing near-record drought conditions and very few thunderstorms. Saskatchewan, Canada saw as many tornadoes in July 2012 as all of the U.S., thanks to the more northward position of the jet stream.

Record moisture and rains
Today's severe weather outbreak was helped by record levels of January moisture, as a flow of unusually moist air rode northwards from the Gulf of Mexico, where water temperatures were about 0.5°F above average. Meteorologists use a term called "precipitable water" to discuss how much water vapor is in the atmosphere. Precipitable water is defined as how much rain would fall on the ground if one took a vertical slice of the atmosphere above a given location and condensed all the water vapor into rain. Precipitable water levels tend to be highest in the summer, since warm air holds more waver vapor, and can exceed two inches in the Midwest U.S. In winter, though, it is rare to see precipitable water values higher than one inch. However, precipitable water was well over an inch well into Canada, and three upper air stations--Detroit, MI, Lincoln IL, and Caribou, Maine--set all-time records for January moisture, and four other stations had their 2nd highest January moisture on record. From the 00Z January 30 to 00Z January 31 upper air balloon soundings taken at the 73 radiosonde stations in the contiguous U.S., we observed these record or near-record precipitable water values for January:

Detroit, MI: New Record: 1.21" Old record: 1.20" 1/11/75
Lincoln, IL: New record: 1.46" Old Record: 1.35" 1/12/60
Caribou, Maine: New Record: 1.21" (Ties old record of 1.21" 1/14/2005)
Alpena, MI: 2nd place, 0.99". First place: 1.01", 1/5/97
Buffalo, NY: 2nd place, 1.21". First place: 1.34", 1/15/95
Wilmington, OH: 2nd place, 1.44" First place: 1.51", 1/12/2005
Gray, ME: 2nd place, 1.36" First place: 1.38" 1/20/96

Green Bay (4th), Albany, NY (4th), Sterling, VA (4th), Shreveport (6th), Little Rock (3rd), Nashville, TN (10th), Chatham, MA (10th), and Maniwawi, Quebec (4th) all had top-ten January precipitable water values. Radiosonde data goes back to 1948.

The exceptional moisture led to record rains in many regions of the Midwest, with numerous locations setting daily precipitation records. Two airports recorded their wettest January day on record, including Madison, WI (1.84", previous record 1.80" on January 1, 1892) and Houghton Lake, MI (1.21", old record 1.08" on in 1938.) Top-five wettest January days in recorded history were also set at Muskegon, MI (2.48"), Marquette, MI (1.21"), and South Bend, IN (1.94".) Here where I live, in Southeast Michigan, being outside yesterday was like walking through a surreal white soup. Rains like nothing I've ever seen in January fitfully poured from the sky throughout the day, ponding up on the frozen ground. Eerie white fog swirled over the sodden snow drifts as thunder rumbled overhead in temperatures 25°F above average. What planet was this? The heavy rains of 1.60" that fell in 26 hours at the nearby Flint airport made this month our wettest January in recorded history, with 3.66" of precipitation.

Evening all. We got a fine downpour this evening during rush hour as this system dragged its tail through the islands [it's not gone, but that leading edge is through the NW Bahamas now]. Afterwards we had one of the most spectacular rainbows I've seen in recent times. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me :o(.

I was sorry to hear about the tornado damage and the loss of life. I was also interested in the following headline:

Deadly Tornado Batters District of GOP Congressman Who Opposed Sandy Aid. I have to admit I was wondering if this was his district. I find it ironic that proof of the adage "what goes around comes around" arrived so swiftly at his doorstep. But those of us who live in the hurricane belt understand all too well that today it is for you, tomorrow it is for me, and we generally have compassion one for another....

Northeast Eruption
A large prominence stretching hundreds of thousands of kilometers located in the northeast quadrant erupted on Thursday. A Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) will most likely be flung into space. Images and movie below by SDO. More to follow.

CME UPDATE: As expected, the northeast quadrant prominence eruption on Thursday flung a Coronal Mass Ejection into space. The plasma cloud was directed to the northeast and away from Earth. This image by Lasco C3.

NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day..

Atlas V Launches TDRS-K
Image Credit & Copyright: Ben Cooper (Launch Photography)

Explanation: Beyond a fertile field of satellite communication antennas at Kennedy Space Center, an Atlas V rocket streaks into orbit in this long exposure photograph. In the thoughtfully composed image recorded on the evening of January 30, the antennas in the foreground bring to mind the rocket's payload, a Tracking and Data Relay Satellite (TDRS; sounds like TEE-dress). This TDRS-K is the first in a next-generation series adding to the constellation of NASA's communication satellites. Operating from geosynchronous orbit 22,300 miles (36,000 kilometers) above planet Earth, the network of TDRS satellites relays communications, data, and commands between spacecraft and ground stations. Formerly the TDRS network provided communications for space shuttle missions. In fact, many TDRS satellites were ferried as far as low Earth orbit on space shuttles. The TDRS network continues to support major spacecraft like the International Space Station, the Hubble Space Telescope, and the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.

For those wondering last night, the report of over 100 cars flipped by the Adairsville tornado was actually confirmed this morning.

As I said a few hours ago, the tornado has been given a rating of a "high-end EF3".

Surviving relatives of four people killed in flash flooding in Pittsburgh in August 2011 are suing several government and private entities claiming the deaths could have been prevented.

Seventy-two-year-old Mary Saflin was swept away from her vehicle and drowned in the torrential waters, and 45-year-old Kimberly Griffith and her two daughters, 12 and 8, were trapped in their van and died when heavy rains caused a nine-foot wall of water to sweep down a low-lying section of road.

Attorneys Alan Perer and Paul Manion say the lawsuit is being filed against the city, its water and sewer authority, Allegheny County and its sewage authority, PennDOT, an engineering firm and even Chrysler Group LLC, which made the Griffiths' van.

Aussie, hope it's not enough rain to raise the water in your creek. Stay safe.

It was enough rain, actually caused a 3ft surge, I could hear it but the rain was that heavy I couldn't take any photo's. The rain we got from Ex-TC Oswald raised the creek level from 0ft to 6ft. Today's rain raised it from to about 4.5ft, right now it's down to about 6inches.

Storms, hail and winds lash NSW

THE SES has responded to around 50 calls for help as fierce storms continue to lash parts of Sydney and NSW.

The Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe thunderstorm warning for this afternoon as thunderstorms develop in the Newcastle and Wollongong areas and further inland.

"There's a big line of thunderstorms moving though Southwest Sydney at the moment," Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) forecaster Jane Golding said. "We’ve had reports of gale force winds and golf ball sized hail."

A fallen tree has closed three lanes of the Pacific Highway at Campbell Street in Artarmon and there are delays on the Anzac Bridge and flooding on Epping Road at Culloden Road in Marsfield.

Ms Golding said the heavy rainfall was likely to cause flash flooding and NSW SES spokesperson Phil Campbell said around 50 calls for help had been made with more rescues expected as the storms worsened.

"The area we're most worried about is the Hunter,'' Mr Campbell said. "We think we’ll have to make more flood rescues tonight, which is obviously a concern.''

The BoM warns there "is a greater than 75 per cent chance that flooding as well as local flash flooding will develop during late Friday and into Saturday" in the Hunter Valley, including the Patterson and Williams Rivers and Scone and in the Manning Valley including Gloucester.

There is a severe thunderstorm warning currently in place for Port Macquarie, Taree, Newcastle, Gosford, Katoomba, Sydney, Wollongong, Nowra, Armidale, Orange, Goulburn, Tamworth, Moree and Dubbo.

There is a warning of gale force winds for the waters between Point Danger and Merimbula.

The SES advises people in the affected areas to move their car under cover or away from trees, and to secure any loose outdoor items.

Quoting SteveDa1:
I found one location that experienced their warmest January day on record in Quebec. Mont-Joli set a new record of 13.3 C on January 31 (yesterday) by beating their previous record of 13.0 C registered on January 19, 1996 (records go back to 1943).
Mont-Joli's temperature fluctuated in a rather strange manner between 9 am and 1 pm:

in new brunswick, saint john was over ten degrees and beat thier record and moncton was over 14 degrees beating that record as well its been nice lol
