More tornadoes and flooding for the Midwest

Wild spring-like severe weather continued Tuesday, with eight tornadoes reported in Arkansas, Missouri, and Tennessee. One Arkansas man died in Appleton when a tornado rolled his mobile home. The same tornado gave a cow a wild ride of 3/4 mile before setting it down unharmed. A total of 48 tornadoes have been reported for the two day severe weather outbreak that has affected much of the Midwest. Two people were killed and three critically injured in southern Missouri on Monday near the town of Marshfield, northeast of Springfield, when a tornado rated EF3 with winds of 136-165 mph smashed through a mobile home park. In Wheatland, Wisconsin, just north of the Illinois border, another EF3 tornado damaged or destroyed 55 buildings and injured 13 people. Twelve homes were demolished down to their foundations. The Wheatland tornado was only the second January tornado on record in Wisconsin. The only other one was a long-track F3 in Green and Rock counties on 24 January 1967. Detailed imagery and analysis of this tornado are available from the National Weather Service in Milwaukee and the CIMSS Satellite Blog.


Figure 1. Storm reports for Tuesday compiled by the Storm Prediction Center.

In north central Indiana, heavy rains of up to eight inches triggered floods along the Wabash and Tippicanoe rivers that killed three people and forced the evacuation of hundreds. No further rain or severe weather is expected in the Midwest today. A new storm system on Thursday may bring the risk of severe weather to Alabama and surrounding states on Thursday.

Our news commented that for Springfield there were 63 tornado warnings over 15 hours of which at least 10 passed over the city. It was a very long scary night that these storms kept coming and coming and coming

Tropical Cyclone Elisa 07F/Tropical Cyclone 11P Update 5

Issued 1000 UTC 10 JAN 2008 by W456
Updated 1600 UTC 10 JAN 2008 by W456

Tropical Depression 07F has been upgraded to Tropical Cyclone Elisa located near 23.0S/174.5W moving towards the southeast. Estimated surface winds have increase to 45 knots and estimated surface pressure is 989 mb. SSTs are running 80F-85F and wind shear is 10-15 knots.

Position and movement was based on satellite imagery and Morphed Integrated Microwave Imagery at CIMSS (MIMIC). MIMIC revealed convective banding has steadily increase arocund the well-define LLCC. Dvorak estimates done were CI 3.0 which corresponds to 45 knots and a pressure of 989 mb. The radius maximum winds have tightened up to 28 nmi mainly within the eastern quadrants based on QuikSCAT and AMSU. The cyclone has also develop a warm-core structure near the center at 9-13 km within the troposphere which is significant as 12 hrs ago 07F warm core was vertically slanted which was a prohibiting factor of development. Satellite imagery along with storm centered TPW (Total Precipitable Water) reveals convection is sill being limited due to dry air on the western side, but nevertheless, bursts of deep clouds continue near and over the center, and the cyclone is still maintaining a nice cyclonic curvature.

The cyclone is forecast to maintain intensity and may intensify some more as it moves towards the southeast under the influence of the permanent easterlies.

An area of disturb weather within the monsoon trough needs to be watch over the next several days. Models have been predicting the development of a relatively strong tropical cyclone over the past week. New model runs indicating a possible second low. If anything were to form it would move towards the SE then recurve back southwestward under the influence of a building ridge in about 108 hrs.

CENTRAL AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN REGION....

Strong westerlies over the Caribbean continue to advect lines of cirrus spikes across the Caribbean from Central America to 70W. Meanwhile, at the surface, trades have strengthened in response the forcing of the surface ridge to the north by the disturbance over the Subtropical Atlantic. These trades are advecting there typical patches of shallow cloudiness across the Caribbean and banking them across the Central American terrain. This northerly flow will also maintain exceptionally cool weather across the Caribbean, as CAA values remain high. Otherwise, relatively quiet weather across our part of the Atlantic.

....SYNOPSIS....

GULF OF MEXICO/NORTHWEST ATLANTIC OCEAN WEST OF 50W....

A shortwave trough continues to move across the US Plains with the associated surface cold front extending from a low in Kansas at 36N/98W to the Texas border at 28N/100W. Upper level divergence and surface inflow from the Gulf of Mexico near these features is producing a swath of multilayered cloudiness showers and thunderstorms extending from Northern Mexico across Coastal Texas and Louisiana into the Southeast United States.

The Western extent of a surface ridge over the Western Atlantic intrudes into the Gulf of Mexico producing 5-10 knot return flow and fair weather. Seas will remain below 5 ft...low enough to allow most marine activities. Expect a cold front to enter the Gulf in the next 24 hrs and as the associated high builds in behind over Texas, expect winds and seas to increase over the Northwest Gulf behind the front.

A 1024 mb high near 34N/65W dominates the weather pattern across the Atlantic west of 60W this afternoon with fair weather and light to moderate anticyclonic flow. Upper-air time cross sections from Nassau, Bahamas show an abundance of dry air in the mid-upper levels of the atmosphere, which is further enhancing stability.

An area of disturb weather is located in the Central Atlantic Subtropics in associated with a surface trough and a low-mid level circulation located near 26N/57.5W based on RGB satellite imagery. Upper level forcing continues enhance low level lift along these surface features and as a result a 1012 mb low has form along the surface trough. Furthermore, low cloud motion indicates a close circulation has already formed or is almost closed off. 20-30 knot wind shear continues to displace the convective mass within a semi-circle of 240 nm northeast of the center. Some development may occur before a cold front absorbs the feature in 48-72 hrs.

Gotcha. Its not so much that the trails were there as in so much how bright they were at midnight.

I have seen them on nights with the moon out but last night was the new moon so that cancels that out.

Just wierd
