Significant Tornado Threat in TX/LA on Sunday

By: Bob Henson 2:00 PM GMT on April 02, 2017

A worrisome juxtaposition of very high instability and extreme wind shear will fall into place across a large swath of eastern Texas and northern Louisiana on Sunday, setting the stage for a potential round of multiple strong tornadoes. Update (12:30 pm CDT]: The NOAA/NWS Storm Prediction Center has placed the region under a high risk of severe weather (its highest risk category), with a chance of significant tornadoes (EF2 or stronger).

The air mass ahead of a cold front moving across central Texas is expected to be quite volatile by midday Sunday, with very rich moisture flowing north from the Gulf of Mexico beneath seasonably cold air aloft. Instability may vault into or above the range of 2000 - 3000 joules per kilogram, which is more than enough for significant severe weather.

Especially worrisome is the fact that winds in the warm sector over southeast Texas and western Louisiana will be from the southeast but will veer quickly to the south and southwest with altitude, while strengthening markedly. Models suggest that the resulting wind profiles will have a classic sickle shape favorable for storm rotation. Because of the especially deep moisture, cloud bases will be quite low. This will add to the tornado potential (because of the added buoyancy from water vapor condensing within the strongly sheared zone), while also raising the risk that tornadoes will be harder to see.

Today’s two main storm modes
A powerful mesoscale convective system (MCS) was already plowing toward the Austin/San Antonio region at 8 am CDT Sunday (see Figure 3 above). This MCS is expected to continue intensifying as it expands north and east through the day, with a risk of embedded tornadoes as well as very strong downbursts (straight-line winds). The HRRR mesoscale model suggests that this MCS could make it through northern Louisiana and southeast Arkansas and on into into northern Mississippi by Sunday night. By late tonight, a solid line of intense storms may extend from the MCS all the way to the Gulf Coast of Louisiana.

Ahead of this MCS, there will be plenty of other thunderstorms over eastern TX and much of Louisiana, likely including the Houston metro area. Any of the strongest storms that can remain more isolated have the potential to be more supercellular, with the highest tornado threat. Tornadic supercells may erupt on the early side for a spring outbreak—perhaps before noon CDT.

A particular zone of concern highlighted by the high-risk area will be near a warm front expected to lie from west to east across east-central Texas and into central Louisiana. In this zone, the low-level winds will have a strong easterly component, maximizing the vertical wind shear and the potential for strong tornadoes. Even though Houston and New Orleans will be south of the warm front, residents should keep on alert as they are not free and clear of Sunday’s tornado threat. The most volatile conditions should remain southeast of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, although DFW could see heavy rain on the north side of the evolving MCS. Very heavy rain will also plaster most of Louisiana; flash flood watches covered the entire state on Sunday morning.


Figure 4. The 12Z Sunday run of the HRRR mesoscale model projected that the significant tornado parameter (STP) would be at very high values, in the range of 4 to 8, over parts of southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana at 19Z (2:00 pm CDT) Sunday, April 2, 2017. The STP values are shown atop projected surface wind plots. The highest STP values can be seen near the warm front, where surface winds have the strongest east-to-west component. STP values indicate where large-scale conditions are supportive for significant tornadoes within a supercell, not where supercells or tornadoes will actually form. Image credit: College of DuPage.

Model-generated indices of severe weather point to the serious nature of Sunday’s set-up. The significant tornado parameter (STP)—a composite index that estimates the likelihood of EF2 - EF5 tornadoes by taking into account instability, wind shear, and how much storms are “capped” by a warm layer aloft—could reach unusually high values of 5 or more in places where the air mass is unaffected by ongoing storms. Most tornadoes rated EF2 or stronger occur where the STP is at least 1, and a study of more than 1000 such U.S. tornadoes found that the average STP value at the time of the tornadoes was 2.2.

Severe weather is expected to continue through the night and on into Monday, as the system quickly progresses into the southeast U.S. If the atmosphere is not heavily suppressed by leftover clouds and rains from overnight storms on Sunday night, a new batch of supercells—potentially including tornadoes—may develop from south Alabama into north Georgia, possibly affecting the Atlanta area. NOAA/SPC has parts of this region under an enhanced risk for severe weather in its Day 2 outlook, with southern Alabama upgraded to a moderate risk for Monday in an update issued at 12:30 pm CDT Sunday.

A somber anniversary: 35 years since the Paris tornado and the first-ever PDS watch
For longtime residents of northeast Texas, Sunday’s tornado threat is bound to bring up memories of a tragic day 35 years ago. On the afternoon of April 2, 1982, the region was hammered by a violent tornadic supercell that plowed through the small city of Paris, killing 10 people and damaging or destroying some 3000 homes. The F4 tornado moved through the heart of Paris (see Figure 5), and the parent supercell spun off other twisters as it charged eastward.

Hailstones up to a phenomenal 6” in diameter fell less than an hour before the Paris tornado struck. A news clip archived on YouTube vividly conveys the aftermath in Paris. Meteorologist Roger Edwards, then a teenager, watched the storm unfolding well to his northeast after he bicycled to a vantage point near his home in Dallas. The NWS office in Fort Worth has a detailed webpage on the event.

The Paris supercell was the “tail-end Charlie” of a devasting line of tornado-spawning storms associated with a very intense upper-level trough and surface low moving through the central U.S. On April 3, 1982, Wisconsin set a state low-pressure record of 28.45” at Green Bay (since eclipsed by another storm in 2010).

Early on April 2, 1982, the NOAA/NWS Storm Prediction Center—then known as the National Severe Storms Forecast Center—issued one of the first convective outlooks (perhaps the very first) to include a “high risk” designation. Later that day, forecaster Bob Johns issued the first-ever tornado watch to be identified as a “particularly dangerous situation” (PDS). This strong wording was borne out by events to come, as 81 preliminary tornado reports were logged from Texas to Ohio in a 25-hour span on April 2-3, 1982. A total of 77 tornadoes were confirmed, with 29 fatalities and 170 injuries.

URGENT - IMMEDIATE BROADCAST REQUESTED
Tornado Watch Number 108
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
555 AM CDT Sun Apr 2 2017

The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

* Tornado Watch for portions of
Parts of central and east Texas

* Effective this Sunday morning and afternoon from 555 AM until
100 PM CDT.

* Primary threats include...
A few tornadoes likely
Scattered damaging winds and isolated significant gusts to 75
mph possible
Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2.5
inches in diameter possible

SUMMARY...A large cluster of thunderstorms that has persisted
overnight west of San Antonio will likely begin to organize into
more of a bowing line with time, with an attendant increase in the
damaging wind risk. Embedded circulations will also pose a tornado
risk. Ahead of the line of storms, more isolated cells now forming
in the Houston to Austin corridor will shift northward with time,
and some could become supercells capable of producing a few
tornadoes later this morning. Large hail will also be possible with
the stronger storms.

The tornado watch area is approximately along and 65 statute miles
north and south of a line from 55 miles west of Hondo TX to 40 miles
south southeast of Tyler TX. For a complete depiction of the watch
see the associated watch outline update (WOUS64 KWNS WOU8).

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

REMEMBER...A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for
tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch
area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for
threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements
and possible warnings.

&&

OTHER WATCH INFORMATION...CONTINUE...WW 107...

AVIATION...Tornadoes and a few severe thunderstorms with hail
surface and aloft to 2.5 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind
gusts to 65 knots. A few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 550. Mean
storm motion vector 24035.

Good Lord,...

We've taken some extra precautions today for tonight here and the overnight hours for the storm.

Ive built a lean to over the corn rows for the high winds and other.

I am taking the vehicles indoors. One older Jeep is going here in the Garage..and the Jeep Sahara will go to the Urgent Care garage up on a 3rd floor level as large hail is our likely damaging culprit.
I urge everyone to take this system seriously.

If your in or near a watch area, you have to be weather savvy today and tonight thru tomorrow afternoon.


Looks like a busy day down there in the TX LA area.
Dr m can you please confirm what kind of format we are changing to on the 3rd ? With the blogs please say some in thank you you are wenting hang high here with no real answer so we blogger would like too have a confirmed answer from you

   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0904 AM CDT Sun Apr 02 2017

Areas affected...eastern Texas through extreme western Louisiana

Concerning...Severe potential...Tornado Watch likely

Valid 021404Z - 021630Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...95 percent

SUMMARY...The threat for tornadoes is expected to increase from late
morning into the afternoon over a portion of east TX. A tornado
watch will likely be issued for parts of east TX into western LA by
16Z, and a PDS tornado watch is being considered. The new watch
might also replace the eastern portion of tornado watch 108.

DISCUSSION...Early this morning numerous discrete to semi-discrete
storms including supercells are developing within a zone of warm
advection and isentropic ascent in the vicinity of a warm front
located from southern LA through eastern TX. The storms north of the
warm front are likely slightly elevated, while activity along and
just south of this boundary are probably ingesting
near-surface-based inflow parcels.

Current expectations are for the storms well north of the warm front
to weaken as they move north into the more stable boundary layer
across northeast TX, but may still pose a short term large hail
threat. Visible imagery indicates some diabatic warming may commence
by mid morning over southeast TX, contributing to further boundary
layer destabilization near the warm front. The front should move
slowly north as the low-level jet strengthens across eastern TX into
far western LA in response to forcing for ascent within exit region
of an upper jet rotating through base of synoptic trough. Increasing
0-1 km hodograph size resulting from the strengthening LLJ and
destabilization of the boundary layer should contribute to an
increasing threat for supercells with strong low-level mesocyclones
and tornadoes as storms continue developing in vicinity of the warm
front.

Mesoscale Discussion 0400
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0905 AM CDT Sun Apr 02 2017

Areas affected...Portions of south-central/southeast LA

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely

Valid 021405Z - 021530Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...20 percent

SUMMARY...An isolated severe risk will exist through the morning
hours. Watch issuance is presently unlikely in the short-term,
though environmental/radar trends will continue to be monitored. The
severe risk will substantially increase later today.

DISCUSSION...Across the easternmost periphery of a warm advection
plume, an isolated cluster of intense storms is spreading eastward
across parts of south-central LA. This activity lies along a warm
frontal zone extending west-east across southern LA, which is slowly
advancing northward. With the 12Z LCH sounding indicating MLCAPE
around 2300 J/kg supported by around 8-C/km midlevel lapse rates
above a 15-g/kg mean mixing ratio, and minimal MLCINH, only minimal
low-level ascent has been necessary to support this activity. As
such, other isolated storms may also form over this segment of the
warm frontal zone during the next few hours, as modest diurnal
heating occurs, while the aforementioned thunderstorm cluster
continues spreading eastward. While stronger wind profiles are
located to the west, around 35 kt of effective shear and 200 m2/s2
of effective SRH will support occasional supercell structures
capable of severe hail, wind, and possibly a tornado risk. However,
with stronger deep ascent located farther west, any severe risk
should be quite isolated this morning -- before a more substantial
increase in the severe risk occurs later today.

outside the hurricane protection levee systems.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A coastal flood advisory indicates that onshore winds and tides
will combine to generate flooding of low areas along the shore.


Orleans/Jefferson Parish in Se. Louisiana1135 PM CDT Sat Apr 1 2017

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect from Sunday afternoon
through Monday afternoon...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* portions of southeast Louisiana and southern Mississippi,
including the following areas, in southeast Louisiana,
Ascension, Assumption, East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana,
Iberville, Livingston, lower Jefferson, lower Lafourche, lower
Plaquemines, lower St. Bernard, lower Terrebonne, northern

Rouge, and West Feliciana. In southern Mississippi, Amite,
Hancock, Pearl River, Pike, Walthall, and Wilkinson.

* From Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon

* heavy rainfall from strong to severe thunderstorms is expected
to produce storm total accumulations generally between 3 and 6
inches from Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon. Some
locally higher amounts may be possible from storms that pass
over the same location repeatedly.

* If rain rates exceed 2 inches per hour then rapid ponding of
water may result in urban and poorly drained areas. Rainfall
accumulation of 3 to 6 inches will result in rises on area
rivers and streams. Depending on how much rain actually does
occur, some minor river flooding is possible by Sunday night
or Monday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.

Area forecast discussion
National Weather Service New Orleans la
820 am CDT sun Apr 2 2017

..sounding discussion...
The sounding this morning already has an increase in moisture from
yesterday with precipitable water at 1 inch, though mainly confined to the first
1500 ft where conditions are saturated. Strong onshore flow and
mixing today will continue to increase low level moisture. Winds
are near 30 kts from the southeast at 950 mb. There is a broad
inversion layer through 750 mb, which will likely keep the
atmosphere across southeast la capped through at least midday or
later. Steep mid level lapse rates are already present. We expect
the atmosphere to significantly modify through the day. The Lake
Charles 12z release already has very high severe parameters. The
boundary of this airmass thus lies along the coast between our two
locations. Looking at a couple of the low level moisture products
in the (preliminary non-operational) new GOES 16 data, we can see
some subtle striations across south cental la that match up
closely with the stronger southeast sfc winds and 70 degree
dewpoints. We believe this mesoscale boundary to represent the
developing warm front and will be tracking its frontogenesis
closely today.

Morning hi-res guidance indicates the cap will hold across
southeast la during daytime hours. However... due to the volatile
airmass arriving with the warm front and moisture convergence
along the coast we feel that the severe threat could begin by
midday across western areas. Any storms that develop in this
environment will be severe. We will continue to watch the early
development west of Lafayette this morning as well.

Krautmann

Chap...
ran chap on 12z lix sounding on a 339k lift from 850 mb. This is
embedded within the capped air currently but should mix out in time
with daytime heating and top-down convective processes. The output
shows a 100% chance of rain, 48% chance of severe storms with a
Ricks index 158. Gust potential 62 kt/71 mph, hail potential 1.25
inch (half-dollar size) with a relatively low vil of 52. Tornado
potential is EF-2. Precipitation 4.09" with potential 7.76". At this
point, this does appear contingent on the ability to overcome the
cap, but all of the Mode outputs appear reasonable and attainable in
the current synoptic situation. 24/rr

Previous discussion... /issued 429 am CDT sun Apr 2 2017/

Discussion...
the potential for a widespread heavy rain event tonight is looking
more and more likely. Wpc has issued a slight to moderate risk for
excessive rainfall over much of the forecast area. In addition to
heavy rainfall, severe thunderstorms will be possible as well with a
slight to moderate risk.

An upper low is currently moving east across northern Mexico into
West Texas will track east into central Texas today before moving
northeast to the Southern Plains tonight. This will put the local
area between the jet wrapping around the upper low and subtropical
jet. Low level convergence and upper divergence will be very strong
in the general region of difluence across Louisiana and Mississippi.
Gulf moisture will surge northward into the area ahead of the
approaching system this evening and overnight. Surface dewpoints are
expected to reach into the lower 70s. Looking at GFS and NAM model
soundings, atmospheric moisture levels will be extremely high with
peak precip water values ranging from 1.8-2" as convection moves
across the County Warning Area. For reference, the 90th percentile for this time of
year is less than 1.5". So hitting the 2" mark is well into record
territory. Seeing numbers like that definitely increases the concern
for a heavy rainfall event. The European model (ecmwf) has been the most consistent
model from run to run, suggesting the heaviest rain to be over
southern and southeast la vs the gfs's solution of central MS. Areal
coverage of 3-6" will be possible with isolated amounts possibly
reaching upwards of 8-10". Those amounts are roughly over about a 12-
18 hour period from this afternoon through Monday morning.
Convection may start nudging into western zones this afternoon
before 00z, so have increased pops to 60% there. A Flash Flood Watch
remains in effect with no changes made to that product.

As noted earlier, there is a slight to moderate risk for severe
weather tonight. Before the column becomes completely saturated, mid
level dry air will still be in place. Mid level cooling and
increasing surface moisture will steepen mid level lapse rates and
decrease Li's. The close proximity of the upper low to the County Warning Area will
result in quite strong winds throughout the boundary layer and thus
increase shear values to 30-50 knots. Srh at the same time should be
over 200 m2/s2. Those parameters suggest increased threat for
damaging winds and a few tornadoes. The window of opportunity for
surface based convection will be relatively short if model soundings
are correct in showing a warm nose developing around 03z. This trend
will progress east with time. A general lowering of severe threat
will take place in eastern zones as well. The best chance for
strongest storms at this times appears to be northwest of a Donaldsonville
to Franklinton line.

There will even more weather impacts to the County Warning Area besides possible
flash flooding and severe weather. The pressure gradient over the
region will be tightening as a sub-1000mb sfc low develops and moves
across northeast Texas and eastern OK tonight. This enhance low level
flow and elevate southeasterly winds significantly. Mav guidance
indicated sustained winds near 25 mph reaching as far north as I-12.
Therefore, will be issuing a Wind Advisory for coastal MS and much
of sela. Additionally, increasing astronomical tides in combination
with strong onshore flow will likely result in minor coastal
flooding. Thinking that tides will be 1-2 feet above normal. Thus,
will be issuing a coastal flood advisory for southeast facing shores of the
County Warning Area.

The heavier rain threat should be rapidly moving east Monday as the
upper trough races east-northeast. Will likely have sunny skies by the
afternoon, especially for western portions of the County Warning Area.

A return to warmer temperatures and no rainfall is expected Monday
through Tuesday. Models show a much deeper long wave trough tracking
across the country through the middle of the week. This will bring
the threat of rainfall back to the region Wednesday. Much colder air
will filter into the forecast area Thursday and Friday behind a cold
front associated with that system. Expect a 15 to 20 degree drop in
temps thurs with a gradual moderation thereafter.

* LOCATIONS...
East Texas
Northern and central Louisiana
Extreme southern Arkansas
Southwest and central Mississippi

* HAZARDS...
Widespread damaging winds, some hurricane force
Several tornadoes, a few intense
Scattered large hail, some baseball size

* SUMMARY...
A severe thunderstorm cluster will likely affect central and
northeast Texas into southern Arkansas and northern Louisiana
today with widespread damaging winds, a few tornadoes, and large

I think as I have been stating for a good while now I don't think we will get an El Nino this year what we could see is either Neutral or La Nina (I'm leaning more on La Nina) this is a similar situation to what occurred back in 2011 ('09/'10 El Nino-'10/'11 La Nina- Early/md '11 neutral for a short time in then back to La Nina in mid/late '11 and going until early-mid '12 when it turns Neutral)

similar situation occurred back then as to whats happening now
models were also the same back in '11 as now
they too predicted an El Nino and it didn't happen and it switched over to La Nina instead funny thing even back in 2011 the sub-surface waters had higher/stronger warm pools than now and even during the El Nino years the warm pools were much much warmer than now 2 even 3 times warmer than at present time

Good Afternoon Folks. Right here with all the regulars watching this severe weather today in case some of us don't make it to the other side with Disqus this week. Radar lighting up in East Texas with a current tornado warning and several severe t-storms. Several ingredients in place this afternoon; warm Gulf flow inbound and the jet is positioned to to move into Texas and LA later today and into tomorrow in addition to the warm temps in place after a few days of high 80's along the Northern Gulf coast the last couple of days.

Good luck everyone and keep tuned to your local media and have a Noaa weather radio on if you are in a tornado watch area today and this evening.

Quoting 163. CaneFreeCR:

I was stationed at Alexandria in the Air Force (England AFB) in the late 50s and remember the place well. Hope the damage was minimal.


Whoa, small world! I was at England AFB too, but mid 60s plus. It was just before the Tet Offensive in Viet Nam. I volunteered for duty in Viet Nam. But... they sent me to Greenland. Go figure.

Everyone stay safe in the path of this severe wx.

Gotch's 12-year-old son tried to wake the pair before fleeing the home and running to his grandmother's house next door, relatives said. The powerful winds threw him off his feet as he ran.

Will be in and out as we continue to prep here, Folks moving car's and securing loose objects. Am going to take Nola Roux to the Boat Launch and get some B roll of the Causeway and Lake,Sky interface.

All done with prep as we have a Finger of God hole under a reinforced concrete double step and vault one could say. If needed.

Its outside the N LR door. As any Nado would come from our Sw seems.

4:37pm - Confirmed tornado heading toward ENTERPRISE, LA area. Take shelter!

I am alive! My first tornado chase might not have been successful in that I didn't actually see a tornado, but we certainly tried! This morning we hit up a couple rotating cells near Lufkin, Texas, one of which had a tornado warning associated with it for over an hour, but the storm mode quickly became too messy, and no tornadoes occurred in the Lufkin area. We should've stayed in central Louisiana along and north of I10; that's where most of the action appears to have occurred today. I definitely wanna do this again someday!

Quoting 226. KoritheMan:

I am alive! My first tornado chase might not have been successful in that I didn't actually see a tornado, but we certainly tried! This morning we hit up a couple rotating cells near Lufkin, Texas, one of which had a tornado warning associated with it for over an hour, but the storm mode quickly became too messy, and no tornadoes occurred in the Lufkin area. We should've stayed in central Louisiana along and north of I10; that's where most of the action appears to have occurred today. I definitely wanna do this again someday!



First deep look from the NOLA Radar shows the energy coming.


Note those puffs of convection at the middle of the Lake S Shore near the Causeway. We heading there as Im just S of that.

A Major Severe Weather Outbreak is Forecast Today and/or Tonight
Widespread severe thunderstorms capable of significant tornadoes, severe wind, and severe hail will spread across the lower Mississippi Valley through tonight. The greatest risk for tornadoes will exist across Louisiana into Mississippi this afternoon through tonight.

PUBLIC SEVERE WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS STORM PREDICTION CENTER NORMAN OK
0501 PM CDT SUN APR 02 2017

...Outbreak of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms expected over
parts of the lower Mississippi Valley this afternoon and tonight...

* LOCATIONS...
Louisiana
Central and southern Mississippi
Extreme southern Arkansas

* HAZARDS...
Numerous tornadoes, several intense and long track
Widespread damaging winds, some hurricane force
Scattered large hail, some baseball size

* SUMMARY...
Widespread severe thunderstorms capable of significant
tornadoes, severe wind, and severe hail will spread across the
lower Mississippi Valley through tonight. The greatest risk for
tornadoes will exist across Louisiana into Mississippi this
afternoon through tonight.

Preparedness actions...

Review your severe weather safety procedures for the possibility
of dangerous weather today. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio,
weather.gov, or other media for watches and warnings. A tornado
watch means that conditions are favorable for tornadoes to form
during the next several hours. If a tornado warning is issued for
your area, move to a place of safety, ideally in a basement or
interior room on the lowest floor of a sturdy building.

Seeing only 6. Tornados today in a high risk area is a major bust normal when you see a high risk or PDS tornadoe watch issue you are looking at more then 70 to 175 tornado or more with some being strong now that's a tornado outbreak seeing only 6 tornadoes in a high risk area is not what I call a tornado outbreak

So the 2nd high risk issue this severe weather season have ended up being a bust

There will likely be more reports that come in as many of the areas that were tornado warned are still being hit with severe warned storms and will likely take time for reports to come out. The severe event is still ongoing, so more tornadoes are likely to form this evening and overnight.

Well, it's been fun, guys. Long time lurker here, and first post. I've really enjoyed all the discussion and info, and I've learned a lot over the last 9 years here. Thanks to all who participated, and best of luck on the move to Disqus. I will not be following - the nesting type format drives me crazy.

What a way to send out the old blog - 90L and a High risk tornado outbreak! Thoughts and prayers to all affected, and who will be affected. Stay safe tonight and tomorrow!
My vector is when houma or lockport forms a cell as we Neast of there



I am unlikely to join DIsqus, so I will take this opportunity to say "Thank You" to everyone here.

I haven't posted much over the years, but I have read fairly compulsively nearly daily. I have learned so much, and have really grown attached to many of you.

Best of luck to everyone, and stay safe no matter the weather!

Unfortunately I'm going to have to agree. I'm not a huge fan of Disqus's layout either. All of the Disqus boards I've seen have zero moderation, lack intelligent debate, and are mostly filled with trolls. Won't be long before WU just deactivates comments in general on blogs, unfortunately. The Disqus format is obviously better than no comments at all, but it's obvious this community is going to eventually get the boot. I'll still pop around, post, and share my opinions, but I think I'll be spending more time on Storm2k this season if anyone wishes to join me there (I'm under the username Hypercane_Kyle if anyone wishes to shoot me a PM).

Patrap, here's a story you might be interested in (or maybe you already know about it). It's about restoring PT-305, the U.S.S. Sudden Jerk at The National World War II Museum there in NOLA. The boat is now offering 90 minute cruises on Lake Pontchartrain on Saturdays.

The decade long $6M effort to put a 70 year old WWII boat back to water.

I love the story and there's some good pictures and videos to go along with it.

Seeing 6 tornado today is not a high risk tornado outbreak


You will no when we have a high risk tornado outbreak when we see 70 to 175 tornado in one day but this high risk was not the day

I don't care what the rest may think or say but you have to admin it

Now if we did not have AM t-storms and cloud cover and sunny all day in the high risk area yes we could have seen a major outbreak today but that did not happen and a lot of you seem too see it in other ways that you don't want to admin it
Sorry you missed the chance you wanted to see lots of wrecked houses and dead people, but I think most will agree that we are much better off without all that. Since you want mayhem, how about creating it in California where you live so you can enjoy it first hand? ;-)

Wish they didn't delete the comments. The comments were a great part of the blog and has a lot of information about the weather going on. It had a lot that the blog didn't tell you about and can't really be found on any other website. The experiences people went through during Katrina is brought up from my mind about the valuable information about the blog comments.
Oh no! I have not been following this at all lately--way busy with a new job. I have been a long time reader although very rarely a poster here. I love reading the comments and forecasts from all you weather geeks. I am very sad to learn this great forum will be no longer. Thanks to all for your updated weather info, good humor, occasional (!) sarcasm, and camaraderie. What will I do here in FL during hurricane season?!!!
Another long time lurker, rare time poster. Just wanted to say thanks to those who help provide valuable content, humor and moderation over the years.

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day

Of course, that was the ending song to Dr. Strangelove, which didn't end too well.
Well guys it has been fun with this blog. I will always remember how this blog was during hurricane season with storms like Gonzalo,Patricia,Hermine,and Matthew. Even though this blog had it's rough times (mostly during quiet periods), It still was a great time. I am personally sorry for anytime that I may have ticked off anybody due to my comments. Also you guys did some good for me as without this blog I probably would still be denying climate change. So bye!
I also would like to thank everybody here for their great information and an occasional laugh or two. I have followed this blog for a couple of years now and it always made hurricane season interesting and although I never posted very often I did lurk alot.

Stopping by to say good-bye to everyone. Will miss everyone. Probably won't join any new site, everyone's format is generally clunky. This place had a good format. Pity it is going away. Yes, yes I could join Disqus, but I doubt I will. I wish I could stay on and tell everyone all the cool things I will hopefully get to do in the future.

I hope some of you make the trip in August to the solar eclipse. Hopefully the weather is clear. :-) Wish this was still here to coordinate, maybe I'll be forced to visit then.

You guys were amazing and wonderful and helped to teach me so much about the weather and everything else. The climate bloggers will remember how I used to be on the wrong side of history with respect to climate change. Neapolitan's hard put-downs are spectacularly harsh, and made the younger version of me real upset on the other side of the screen.

Brian's use of the haiku was incredible but some of the images posted from him were a little creepy. :) Gro's age and experience is wonderful, never learned so much about Noah until I chatted with Gro. Also was never called a twit before. Respect to Patrap for the unending devotion and dedication in making this place a respectable environment.

Barb's updates from Germany were really cool and offered a nice glimpse into European weather. Sometimes I forget about the rest of the world while I am isolated on a college campus.

Best years here was when WU chat existed. The amount of teasing, insults, general chat about the most random of topics will always be a fun memory of mine. Cody (TropicalAnalyst), Isaac (wxchaser97), Kyle (bluestorm5), Kyle (CybrTeddy), Max, Kori, Brian, Gro, sometimes Skye (then we behaved better when she or KEEP or wabit showed up). ;) Amazingly enough, when I say hi to Cody today, I get an insult back. Guess he likes me. :-D

With that, good luck to everyone. I will miss you all. With all of the backup places people are going to, maybe I might be able to renew contact if I ever swing by, say the next AMS meeting in NOLA (Pat, Kori) or visit Brian down in B-more. You guys were my favorite part of the internet for 5 years and I wish all of you the best.

Im going to miss this place. But onward to Disqus I guess.
Nobody is going anywhere. Astro, docrod, iso, pat, pot.......

I doubt there is a blog anywhere that had such devoted followers. The Doc and Bob have provided wonderful information and commentary. And the contribution and interaction of the bloggers has been one of the highlights of my life, the other being my honeymoon. We like each other, we care about each other, and worry about each other. We also lovingly insult each other. That is what families do. What you don't do is abandon them. It would be nice to know how all the youngsters that have grown up on the blog are doing. If you all left, I for one, would really miss your presence. After all, what do I have left, another two or three hundred years left? Let my final few centuries go by with a few smiles.

You can not call it a bust, when people are dead.
And this is why you will never be a mod.


LOL

Seriously? Wut? LOL

That's like saying that a tropical storm killing someone makes the storm worthy of retirement, or something similarly stupid like that.

I mean, sure, it's tragic that some people died. I would've definitely preferred for the tornado to have occurred over an open field or something. But whether or the High Risk verified is pretty up in the air. The SPC needs a stricter criteria for what constitutes a forecast success relative to a specified risk level. You can't exactly say that the High Risk verified arbitrarily like that, at least not absolutely like the way you phrased it.

And seriously, let's not resort to emotional appeals. What does being a mod have to do with anything? Isn't that sort of like a business thing? So it has nothing to do with someone's perspective on the verification on a forecast. Why did 14 people plus your emotionally-driven, unjustified rant to a guy that meant no harm?

DBL post.
Weather Underground (WU) is based in San Francisco, California and was founded in 1995 as an offshoot of the University of Michigan's Internet weather database. The name is a reference to the 1960s militant radical student group the Weather Underground, which also originated at the University of Michigan.[3]

Jeff Masters, a doctoral candidate in meteorology at the University of Michigan working under the direction of Professor Perry Samson, wrote a menu-based Telnet interface in 1991 that displayed real-time weather information around the world. In 1993, they recruited Alan Steremberg and initiated a project to bring Internet weather into K-12 classrooms. WU's president Alan Steremberg wrote "Blue Skies" for the project, a graphical Mac gopher client, which won several awards. When the Mosaic Web browser appeared, this provided a natural transition from "Blue Skies" to the Web.


The original logo, used from 1997 through 2014
In 1995 Weather Underground, Inc. became a commercial entity separate from the university.[4] It has grown to provide weather for print sources, in addition to its online presence. In 2005, Weather Underground became the weather provider for the Associated Press; WU also provides weather reports for some newspapers (including the San Francisco Chronicle) and the Google search engine. Alan Steremberg, Weather Underground's president, also worked on the early development of Google's search engine with Larry Page and Sergey Brin.

In October 2008, Jeff Masters reported that the site was #2 in Internet Weather for 2008.[5]

In February 2010, Weather Underground launched FullScreenWeather.com, a full screen weather Web tool with integrated mapping and mobile device use in mind.

On July 2, 2012, The Weather Channel announced that it would acquire Weather Underground, which would become operated as part of The Weather Channel Companies, LLC, which was later renamed "The Weather Company". The Weather Underground website continues to operate as a separate entity from The Weather Channel's primary site, weather.com, with its existing staff retained. Third-party web analytics providers Alexa and SimilarWeb rate the site as the 117th and 98th most visited website in the United States respectively, as of July 2015.[6][7] SimilarWeb rates the site as the second most visited weather website globally, attracting more than 47 million visitors per month.[7][8] The Weather Company also uses the site's San Francisco headquarters as a regional office.[9][10]

The website's popularity also helped launch a TV show hosted by meteorologist Mike Bettes, which airs on The Weather Channel from 6-8pm ET (except during storm coverage; in which case the show is extended to 10pm).

On October 28, 2015, Jeff Masters noted that IBM had officially announced an agreement to acquire The Weather Company’s business-to-business, mobile and cloud-based web properties, including Weather Underground, WSI, weather.com, and also the Weather Company brand.

Melancholia
[Morgan, MS M161]

358. elioe
There is almost a consensus among models (JMA, NAVGEM, GFS, CMC and UKMET phase diagrams), that there is a weak low in the South Atlantic, likely becoming symmetric, shallow warm-core system right now. Upper-level winds are low, less than 20 knots, for the next 24 hours. But then those winds increase suddenly to 70 knots. And there is no indication, that the system would acquire organized convection.

Noon PDT seems to be 22:00 my local time, so only 8.5 hours left... the end is near... fortunately lots of people have already joined Disqus :)
Help Please!

While today's weather focus will include the Florida Panhandle, perhaps someone at Weather Underground will note that the marine forecast from Pensacola to Panama City is totally screwed up. It has been for some time. Here in the Santa Rosa beach Area, fisherman have really depended on WU for our Marine Forecast for many years.

In the Grayton beach area your site is the first one checked by the Grayton Beach area fishermen as we launch our boat right off of the beach.

Since around Thanksgiving of last year your forecast has been totally screwed up,usually providing the the forecast from February 2, 2017.

Today the report is more recent "Forecast as of 9:35 PM EDT on March 25, 2017".

Could someone please fix this issue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quoting 337. Astrometeor:

Stopping by to say good-bye to everyone. Will miss everyone. Probably won't join any new site, everyone's format is generally clunky. This place had a good format. Pity it is going away. Yes, yes I could join Disqus, but I doubt I will. I wish I could stay on and tell everyone all the cool things I will hopefully get to do in the future.

I hope some of you make the trip in August to the solar eclipse. Hopefully the weather is clear. :-) Wish this was still here to coordinate, maybe I'll be forced to visit then.

You guys were amazing and wonderful and helped to teach me so much about the weather and everything else. The climate bloggers will remember how I used to be on the wrong side of history with respect to climate change. Neapolitan's hard put-downs are spectacularly harsh, and made the younger version of me real upset on the other side of the screen.

Brian's use of the haiku was incredible but some of the images posted from him were a little creepy. :) Gro's age and experience is wonderful, never learned so much about Noah until I chatted with Gro. Also was never called a twit before. Respect to Patrap for the unending devotion and dedication in making this place a respectable environment.

Barb's updates from Germany were really cool and offered a nice glimpse into European weather. Sometimes I forget about the rest of the world while I am isolated on a college campus.

Best years here was when WU chat existed. The amount of teasing, insults, general chat about the most random of topics will always be a fun memory of mine. Cody (TropicalAnalyst), Isaac (wxchaser97), Kyle (bluestorm5), Kyle (CybrTeddy), Max, Kori, Brian, Gro, sometimes Skye (then we behaved better when she or KEEP or wabit showed up). ;) Amazingly enough, when I say hi to Cody today, I get an insult back. Guess he likes me. :-D

With that, good luck to everyone. I will miss you all. With all of the backup places people are going to, maybe I might be able to renew contact if I ever swing by, say the next AMS meeting in NOLA (Pat, Kori) or visit Brian down in B-more. You guys were my favorite part of the internet for 5 years and I wish all of you the best.
First: I wish you wouldn't bail on this forum. Things will be different, yes, ut not all *that* much different. And in some ways, it'll be better than now. I've been a Disqus user elsewhere for many years, and it's always worked very well. So well, in fact, that I've often wished over the years that WU had switched to a more stable, adaptable, and expandable commenting system like Disqus. And this: Wired magazine is one of the most amazing, technologically-progressive, forward-looking publications around, and their website is even more so.

Their website uses Disqus.

Second: sorry if I ever came across as harsh. I never intended to, but if I did, it's only because I thought you could handle it. You're one of the brightest young people here, and it's always amazed me how well-educated and well-thought out your comments were. Ditto Cody, Kori, Kyle, and the rest of the new generation of weather/climate geeks. I've single-fathered three of my own kids, taking them through their teenage years over the past ten years. And while they're doing well now, there have been some rough patches, so kudos to you guys for seemingly getting it right and keeping your heads screwed on right. And kudos to your parents for doing it right. I really hope all you guys stick around, but even if you choose not to, I wish you all the best in the future, and think every one of you could go far.

I'm not going to say goodbye to anyone else; I think most will stick around; others I know in person; still others I know via facebook or email. And to the rest: it's been a blast. C'est la vie...
Is it my imagination or is the world activity of hurricanes and typhoons decreasing? Seems like they are less frequent and lower energy in the last few years.
Quoting 355. Uragani:



Dangerous weather in southern Greece right now:


A level 2 was issued for the SW coast of Greece mainly for tornado and large hail chances. ...
A low pressure system filled with cold air in the mid/upper levels moved into the central Mediterranean area, producing scattered areas o showers and thunderstorms. Its cold front with active thunderstorms will affect the Balkan coast during the morning. ...
The cold font is crossed by a strong jet stream which produces 30-35 m/s 0-6 km shear magnitudes. GFS hodographs show ample veering with height and 300-500 m2/s2 of 0-3 km SREH results, providing favourable conditions for supercells or embedded mesocyclones in case of linear convection. Large hail is possible as well as tornadoes since 0-1 km shear also is enhanced over 12 m/s. ...

From Estofex.

C'mon, WU, bring on the new site! Good bye is lasting just too long! It's like being with someone parting on a platform in a station when the awaited train is delayed ...
Good Morning All. Pending the switch to Disqus , and provided that the regulars and others migrate over, hopefully no more blog holes and it should be a smooth transition although I fully understand the sentiments of the "full" participants with their personal blogs and the community sense of the original vision of WU.

With that being said, and with the current Spring severe weather season in full gear, the recent deaths show us how serious the business of weather is. I am still reeling over the deaths of the storm chasers last week and the mobile home being overturned and killing a mother and child in LA (as well as another death there).

We have often talked about safety issues when related to storm chasers and the importance of having folks who live in mobile homes seeking sturdier shelter if they are under a tornado watch. These recent deaths should spark more conversation at the emergency management level as to how to try to avoid this in the future...............I do not know the answer but a better job has to be done in terms of how mobile home residents need to be warned and to react when a tornado watch is issued for their locations.

Goodbye, WU. It's been quite the ride. For those of you in the crosshairs today with the severe wx, stay safe.
Latest NWS Charleston outlook;

Severe Weather Potential: While the best potential vorticity is
forecast to stay to our NW and there are only minimal height
falls and QG forcing, there are several indicators that strong
or even severe storms will occur, especially inland from the
coast. Thermodynamics appear conducive for maintenance of the
squall line with SBCAPE in excess of 1000-1500 J/kg, TTI is
50-55C and impressive shear with robust low and mid level wind
fields to arrive. 0-6 km shear of 45-55 kt suggests that
damaging winds are a threat with storms, but steepening mid
level lapse rates and favorable CAPE within the hail growth zone
also supports a large hail potential.

There remains some uncertainty as to whether or not discrete
supercells form with the passage of the warm front. SHERBS3 is
around a unit of 1, the 0-1 km shear is 30-40 kt, SRH both in
the 0-1km and 0-3 km layer is greater than 200-300 ms/secs and
EHI is 2-3. Also the models have a Sig Tor values of 2 or 3.
These conditions could support a risk for isolated tornadoes.

The most likely timing of any severe weather is from 4 pm to 11
pm, comparable to the timing of the high-res model suite.
Here in Tallahassee, a few hundred miles from the main line, it's already a little gusty and the lower level cloud deck is rotating in cyclonic fashion due to the strong low driving the weather. Have a feeling it's going to get bad later later today with the severe t-storms due to the warm flow coming up from the Gulf:

No need to say goodbye to me! I don't plan to leave. I'll be posting during the active parts of the season. However, I'll definitely be spending a much more reduced time on the blog. I still enjoy reading Dr. Masters' posts regarding tropical weather and climate info.

Re: Disqus, I also have used Wired and I think it works well enough for them. I agree it's definitely more techno-progressive, but I just don't think it's the right system to use for the fast paced discussions and conversations during the peak of severe wx season or hurricane season. I've also found the amount of trolls on Disqus is pretty bad, even worse than WU during the peak of season. I found last season that Storm2k/AmericanWx forum layout was even more conducive for fast-paced discussion. I actually found I was on Storm2k last year during Matthew more than I was on WU. If anyone's leaving but not wishing to leave behind storm tracking, I strongly encourage you to join the communities there as many WU-vets can already be found there.

It really has been fun and informative, reading and posting on WU. I'll miss it to some degree. However, between real life obligations and the switch to Disqus...well, it just seems like a good point to break it off. I'll keep reading, so stay funny and smart. Remember, my amusement and education depends on YOU!
It's been a great ride with WU. I was an early blogger around 15-20 years ago, under the name of "stormwatch" and later, a limited blogger under a couple of different names. I have enjoyed the dialog and although I hardly ever post anymore, I'll remember the WU family of bloggers indefinately (or until I lose my memory).

I'll be following the WU conversations on Disqus.
In some ways, this will address "issues" that many have, in that the WU blog posts will be made in a central location (all in the same place) with the comments sections attached to each blog post.

I will miss having to read through various "conversations" as that expanded my opportunity to learn new things and be exposed to new ideas and different points of view.

So, in essence, this will allow Dr. M and others to post relevant information about the climate and associated politics while also posting about tropical weather - and the comments would be confined to that particular blog.

So those that have "issues" with certain topics, will not necessarily be exposed to them.

We'll see what happens - and hope that many that contribute here (even those that I may not agree with) continue to do so. It has been enjoyable, and educational.

And although I do not reach out to meet many in person, I do appreciate the "in virtual" relationships that have been made here.
Praise to Valhalla...

I do hope and I think will eventually happen that the rains will come up through the Caribbean
from the latest update here in Cayman is the worst out of the rest of the Caribbean with Cayman being under a Drought Emergency while others are just under Drought Warning and Watches

some hefty Tropical Waves and a few decent TS or Hurricanes can easily fix the issue
Longtime lurker, infrequent poster but I have appreciated reading posts here. Have learned a lot over time. Disquis is not modified so probably won't stay around too long after the change. It's been fun most of the time.
While it is sad to see a lot of users leaving the blog and the era of the classic Wunderblogs is coming to an end, I do think the switch to Disqus may have some benefits. Hopefully the infamous "blog holes" won't be a problem anymore, because there was numerous times last hurricane season where the blog would not let us post for long periods of time. Also with the replies being grouped together it may allow discussion of varying topics to be separate. Excited for the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season which is now under two months away, and hopefully the Disqus switch will be a success in the end. This will be my last post on the classic Wunderblogs format. See you on Disqus later today, I'll be posting under the same name there.

Gonna miss WU, It has been great time.
Reading this blog yesterday evening made it sound like the sky is falling, WU was going under (no pun intended), and we'd no longer have this weather blog to read up and post about daily weather and extreme events.

Then I read the FAQs and to me it sounds like the change is minimal. We'll still have a blog, and still be able to post comments. What am I missing? People are freaking out because old content will be deleted, who the heck cares about that? Some people.

Well, having been a Disqus user for many years, I can tell you pretty much how the format will look. So far as how it works, I think it'll be an improvement. Fewer to no "black holes"; better uptime; easier for people to follow you, and you to follow others; consistent threading; far easier for users to find their old comments, and so on. IOW: better.
