Severe Weather Targets Mississippi, Tennessee Valleys

By: Bob Henson 5:49 PM GMT on December 23, 2015

Just a day before Christmas Eve, the threat of tornadoes is darkening the pre-holiday mood across parts of the South. In its outlook updated at 10:30 am CDT, NOAA’s Storm Prediction Center (SPC) is projecting a moderate risk of severe weather for Wednesday from eastern Arkansas across northern Mississippi and Arkansas into western Tennessee and Kentucky, with lesser risks over a large surrounding area covering most of the nation between the Mississippi and the Appalachians. In the moderate risk area, long-track tornadoes are a distinct possibility. On Wednesday morning, The Weather Channel’s Dr. Greg Forbes raised the TOR:CON level to 8 across northern Mississippi and Alabama and western Tennessee, calling a tornado outbreak “likely.” According to TWC’s Michael Butler, this is the nation’s first TOR:CON of 8 since April 28, 2014. By late morning, several bands of severe thunderstorms had already developed from Illinois to Arkansas, with scattered storms further to the southeast. Two tornado watches were in effect, and more than two dozen tornado warnings had already been issued. Major tornado outbreaks in December are uncommon but not unheard of. The last "Moderate Risk" forecast for severe weather issued by the SPC in December was in 2013; there were also two "Moderate Risk" forecasts issued in December 2012.


Figure 1. NOAA/SPC severe weather outlook for Wednesday, December 23, 2015, updated at 10:30 am CDT.

A broad channel of warm, soupy air from the Gulf of Mexico has streamed north across much of the eastern U.S. over the last 24 hours. Both temperatures and dew points have risen into the 50s as far north as Detroit and New York and into the low 70s over Louisiana. Later today, warm, humid air feeding into the moderate-risk area will combine with the rich moisture to produce increasingly unstable surface conditions. The instability will not be extreme, but in wintertime even moderate levels of instability are enough to produce tornadic supercell storms if there is strong wind shear present. The latter will be furnished by a sprawling upper-level trough over the western U.S., with jet-stream winds well above 120 mph. A strong upper-level impulse within the trough will shoot northeast across the moderate-risk area later today, providing the dynamics to support widespread severe weather.


Figure 2. WunderMap depiction of jet-stream winds in knots (multiply by 1.15 for mph) at the 300-mb level (around 30,000 feet) projected by the GFS model for 21Z (3:00 pm CST) on Wednesday, December 23, 2015. The sharp kink in the jet centered over eastern Arkansas and western Tennessee will act intensify updrafts and wind shear over the region.

Across the moderate risk area, supercell thunderstorms will pose a particular risk of dangerous tornadoes on Wednesday afternoon and evening. On Thursday, a broad swath of less intense thunderstorms will extend unusually far to the northeast for this time of year. Thunder and lightning could serve as a stand-in for a white Christmas Eve as far north as Albany and Boston. Instability will be somewhat lower on Thursday, and the wind configuration less favorable, so the Day 2 outlook released by SPC on Wednesday morning projects only a marginal risk for severe weather with these storms from the central Gulf Coast to the Washington, D.C., area. As the upper-level trough recharges across the West over the weekend, and another pulse of springlike air moves in, additional severe weather could erupt over eastern Texas and adjoining states.

December can be dangerous for severe weather over the South
Ready access to warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico means that severe weather is a risk over the U.S. South even during the cold season. Wednesday’s activity is pushing the typical northern edge of such outbreaks. The most recent significant tornado outbreak (10+ tornadoes) during Christmas week was on December 21, 2013, centered over the Mississippi Delta. Two fatalities were associated with at least 14 twisters that day. The largest outbreak on Christmas Day occurred on December 25, 2012, when more than two dozen Christmas Day tornadoes struck from Texas to North Carolina. On New Year’s Eve 2010, an outbreak with 32 tornadoes included seven EF3s, one of which killed four people in Arkansas (with nine fatalites in all that day). The five deadliest U.S. December tornadoes have been summarized by weather.com, including an F4 twister that killed 11 near Tuscaloosa, AL, on December 16, 2000, and another F4 that took 11 lives at Murphysboro, IL, on December 18, 1957. The most devastating of the lot was the tornado that swept across Vicksburg, MS, on December 5, 1953, killing 38 people and injuring 270.

Record-melting heat still on tap for the holiday weekend
More than a month ago, seasonal prediction models and the record from past strong El Niños pointed toward the chance of a December “warm wave” for much of eastern North America. Those signals are being confirmed in spectacular fashion, as hundreds of daily record-warm highs and lows--and a number of monthly records--are destined to fall over the next several days over much of the United States east of the Mississippi. With overnight temperatures so warm, some record highs for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day may fall at the stroke of midnight! For Thursday (Christmas Eve), WU is predicting record highs on par with typical early-autumn readings, including 56°F in Portland, ME; 68°F in Boston, MA; 72°F in New York, NY; 73°F in Philadelphia, PA; 74°F in Washington, D.C.; and 79°F in Norfolk, VA. A half-hearted cool front will push the warmest air toward the southeast by Friday (Christmas Day), but it’ll still remain unusually mild across parts of the Northeast and downright springlike all weekend further to the south, with 70s from North Carolina to Georgia and 80s in Florida. For more background on the warm weather that’s bathed several continents this month, see our post from last Monday.

Wunderblogger Steve Gregory has a new Wednesday afternoon post, Record Warmth – Severe T-Storms - But Pattern Change on the Way. Another Wunderblogger, Lee Grenci, weighs in today on the "clash of air masses" explanation for severe weather.

Stay safe, everyone!

Thanks for the update Bob.
Actually, across LA / MS we had a multi-fatality severe / tornado outbreak exactly one year ago on this date Dec 23 2014, according to SPC Storm Reports. Today could easily be a more widespread event, safe wishes to all.
(Getting low level jet SE winds ripping to 35+ here in SE LA since mid morn!)
Thank You Mr. Henson, in follow-up to Patrap's comment earlier about never seeing conditions like this along the Gulf in December, I have never seen this type of set-up in December in my 15 years in Tallahassee now with a "warm" frontal system coming through with winds out of the S-SW. Pretty amazing that my oldest Daughter (23), who grew up wade fishing with me in these parts on the Gulf Coast in the Summers (from April to August), is on her way from Atlanta as we speak and we have made a change of plans for Sunday morning. Going wade fishing on the coast for Redfish and Trout that have not gone upriver yet in any significant numbers due to the warm temps at the end of this month.

In terms of later today, starting to get a little worried as the Sun has been poking through quite a bit in these parts which will raise the instability levels later this afternoon and certainly more worried for the folks under the severe weather gun as there is not much of a significant rain shield at the moment in many parts of moderate risk areas:

Thanks, Bob. From your blog above:

"A half-hearted cool front will push the warmest air toward the southeast by Friday (Christmas Day), but it’ll still remain unusually mild across parts of the Northeast and downright springlike all weekend further to the south, with 70s from North Carolina to Georgia and 80s in Florida."

It seems like this is the main difference between today and previous December severe weather outbreaks. In 2010, for example, the temperature in St. Louis fell from 59 at 3:52 pm 12/31 to 25 at 7A:51 om, as the cold air advection really set in. It barely rose above freezing to 33 at 2:51 pm, sliding down to 24 by midnight and 18 degrees by 6:52 am the next morning. The prediction for the next seven days is that St. Louis won't even have a low below freezing. Not saying we won't get any severe storms today and tomorrow, but it's hard to get a widespread outbreak without that pool of cold air colliding with the warm air.
I would also argue that some of the dry warm air moving across the Gulf and into Texas-Louisiana is being drawn in from the warm flow across Mexico coming in from the E-Pac region (as well as the Gulf):

Excellent point, sar. The longevity of the warm, moist air mass fueling this severe weather, and the lack of much cold air, is really astounding. Actually, this makes me more rather than less concerned about severe weather, since whatever supercells might develop are less likely to be undercut/weakened by chilly surface air. With such an off-the-chart airmass for this time of year, we need to be wary of unusual outcomes.

Starting to look like Sunday could be REALLY warm (70s and possibly warmer than Christmas Eve) again in the mid atlantic after a short lived wedge Friday night and Saturday. Much stronger wedging Monday may not break before decent cold air.. the kind one expects in December gets in here wednesday or so.
My first sentence is lower probability than the official forecast here in DC but it's a plausible alternative.
Both Mom and Dad are working today in downtown Nashville, Mom told me to keep her posted on developments. We're not expecting action until the evening.

Things starting to pick up into MO and IL now windwise:

I agree 100% with what you wrote, Bob. It's those individual and almost unpredictable supercells, in terms of location, that are going to generate severe weather over the next 36 hours. We may not get as many storms total as we would with a big MLCS charging down with a load of cold air. Still, some supercells are going to develop, and the lead time for warnings on those is going to be very short. This is the kind of setup where we need to be watching those cells for development rather than the more usual big line of storms.
Don't know that anyone posted the Aussie Met Enso update from yesterday; interrelated with the current record warmth and may be an issue in the Spring again (as waning El Ninos tend to cause the most tornadic outbreaks in these periods):

Issued on 22 December 2015 

El Niño remains near its peak, with the tropical Pacific Ocean and overlying atmosphere consistent with a strong event. Models suggest the event will start to decline in 2016, but a return to ENSO-neutral is not likely until at least autumn.

Sea surface temperatures and cloud patterns near the Date Line remain well in excess of El Niño thresholds. The Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) has returned to El Niño levels following a brief period of neutral values. Below-surface ocean temperatures in the eastern tropical Pacific remain significantly warmer than average, but clearly some cooling has occurred in the past fortnight. Changes in the sub-surface are an important indicator, as the sub-surface plays a significant role in maintaining the strength and longevity of El Niño events.

Model outlooks

About half of the eight international climate models surveyed by the Bureau indicate that the current El Niño may maintain central Pacific Ocean SSTs at similar levels to present into the new year. Conversely, two models indicate that peak values are likely to have already occurred.

All models agree that a steady decline in central Pacific SST values is likely to occur from early 2016. Six of the eight models indicate a return to neutral values by the middle of the austral autumn, with the remaining two returning to neutral values during the first half of winter.

Long range models are more encouraging for pattern change to ring in the New Year, which may be non-transient. The GFS, GEFS, and ECMWF 12z runs suggest this negative EPO, positive PNA, negative NAO/AO allowing the mean trough to set up over the ECONUS. Best i've seen the ECMWF look in a while for our prospects.

My first sentence is lower probability than the official forecast here in DC but it's a plausible alternative.
The whole Christmas weekend period is forecast to be very warm here in SE AL, with highs of 80 Christmas day and Boxing day, and still 78 on Sunday. All those temperatures would tie or break the previous records. All of this is predicated on getting some clearing though. Our forecast high for today was 77. It's now been dropped to 74, but it's only 63 now, with more or less constant light rain. Unless we get some clearing within the next three hours, I can't see how we'll get much warmer than right now. We had a southerly flow up until about an hour ago, but that's starting to come around to easterly, which is the sign of a Georgia Wedge starting. As long as we don't get clearing, the chances for any widespread severe weather in south Alabama is fairly low. I think the main action in Alabama is going to be in the northwest section of the state overnight, exactly the wrong time for this kind of thing.

My electric bill for November was actually only $5 less than my electric bill was in July. I believe my bill was low in July because it seemed to constantly rain every day, whereas November broke many record highs and was very dry. Usually the difference in utility bills in FL between the summer and winter is a lot more significant.
With active warnings, heads up. Things are really starting to get going.
I sure hope I get to stay home today a view things from my computer, otherwise, I'm going to get very wet.

we've had strong winds from the southeast and south all morning gusting at times to 35 mph or stronger . seems we have missed the first round of storms 2nd round as low will move over us giving us strong storms on the back side ..

Tornado warnings to my east till 5 pm ..
Quoting 20. Drakoen:

Long range models are more encouraging for pattern change to ring in the New Year, which may be non-transient. The GFS, GEFS, and ECMWF 12z runs suggest this negative EPO, positive PNA, negative NAO/AO allowing the mean trough to set up over the ECONUS. Best i've seen the ECMWF look in a while for our prospects.
This?
new tornado warning issued #561 for area to my west including the county just to my west ..

Thanks for the update Mr Henson! Everyone be safe from them possible tornados!

Kind of surprised that much damage in Skye's report up here already. All of it is E of me, and we had some Tstorms come through in waves. A site to my E was not updated and everything else was 30 -35 gust. However it just came back & it shows a 55 gust, it's a little S & W of the beginning damage areas. Radar shows that line bowing a little as well as now approaches C & S IN.

Had about .6" in less than an hour this morning, then when rechecked after lunch another inch had fallen. StL last night said our severe chance would be late afternoon & dependent upon how much sun broke out. 1st wave lasted longer than expected, so imagine that tamps down our severe chances. Watch in effect until 5 for us, and at last check, could see it lightening up to our W ahead of cold front that is/was supposed to fire it up. Edit: Guess it's til 9 now looking at wabit's post, though E edge of it one county W of us.

Currently in mid/upper 50s w/ dew pts to match, most stations in lower 29.2" range. Stay safe down S! (& W now)

That has jet phasing written all over it....Produces extremely dangerous storms..March 1993 Storm is a great example.

Yes that and thereafter. Ridging extending from the WCONUS up to Alaska is the effective wall we will need to block the shortwave flow off the Pacific and buckle the flow coming down from Canada into the ECONUS.

Historic blizzard is possible for the Texas Panhandle. Last night I was listening to TWC's Winter Weather Expert, and he was saying over 20" of snow in some areas.
Hoping for all of our folks in the US and Conus subject to any severe weather to keep an eye and ear out on your media (or noaa weather radio) for any threatening weather.

Happy Holidays otherwise for all of our Bloggers and especially to Dr. Master's and Mr. Henson; all of You have a safe holiday with your families and I will check back in sometime in mid-January (on extended vacation in t-minus 10 minutes).

The track of the this next system has been shifting to the south with each run. They have drastically reduced the heavy rains forecasted for my area in that swath from Texas to Indiana and have been been sinking it to the south. Will be interesting to see just how much cold air gets pulled into this system as it moves NE. I'm ready for some snow.

Two new record temperatures for Houston today. Intercontinental airport with 81, old record 80 in 1996. Hobby Airport with 83, old record 80 in 1964. After a drizzly and gray start, the sun came out and has been out most of the day. If we get storms later, they have plenty of instability to work with.

ABC News Has This on their home page under latest headlines

Elsewhere, severe thunderstorms and possible tornadoes were forecast for Wednesday in Arkansas, northern Alabama, northern Mississippi and western Tennessee. Tornadoes are not unheard-of in the region in late December, but the extreme weather, driven by warm temperatures and large amounts of moisture in the atmosphere, was nonetheless striking, said Jeff Masters, director of meteorology at Weather Underground.

Best way would be a huge snowfall that melts normally to refill lakes, but need the rain to bring the aquifers up from record lows. Sorry for the flooding and damage, but that's how Cali rolls. Some think the tax issues in Cali causing economic problems.........wait and see what no water does! Like I said, sorry for flooding and damage but a huge water year is needed. Snow has been decent SO FAR up north but much more needed.

I went down to the Crossroads... that twister definitely looks it will be doing damage.

Looking to W earlier, could see the tops of the new line forming where had been nothing on radar 15 min b4. Came back and sure enough they were there & Pat lists Severe Tstorm Warning for Quad City NWS. Surprised that since then they haven't crossed the River yet, but getting there now.
Quoting 52. ILwthrfan:



Good point, I actually have yet to see a major news media outlet highlight the event as of yet. All big names included.


Fox News has it listed under their latest news section but not highlighted as one of its top stories. Storms that have a potential to kill should be a top story to help people in the danger areas take notice.
Did that tornado dissipate? I don't see it on the video anymore in Clarksdale.

Scary. If I lived there and saw that coming at me I wouldn't even have known it was a tornado. I hope everyone stays safe. This looks like a very bad situation unfolding across multiple states right now.

A good example of why it's tough to be a weather forecaster in the South...

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TALLAHASSEE FL
320 PM EST WED DEC 23 2015

.Near Term [Through Tonight]...

Global and local-scale models continue to struggle with both
initializing the ongoing convective situation, and providing a
realistic forecast over the next 24 hours. At least locally, this
is likely caused by improper initialization of MCS features, as
well as an inability to resolve the mesoscale surface forcing.

Convection across southeast Alabama this morning kept Alabama and
southwest Georgia cooler than their neighbors to the south and
east. This set up a mesoscale baroclinic zone that was not modeled
well by any guidance. Into the early afternoon this cool "dome"
served as a favorable area for isentropic ascent, with a large,
nearly continuous area of moderate rainfall. Then, later this
afternoon, as the airmass destabilized across north Florida
scattered stronger storms and a few supercells developed. By the
time they matured, they were mostly into the more stable
environment over Alabama and remained elevated.

For the next several hours, continued moist southwesterly flow
will force generally light to moderate isentropic rain over the
cool dome across southeast Alabama, the Panhandle, and southwest
Georgia. Areas further southeast will likely continue to see light
to moderate rain as well as rain is forced a bit higher in the
atmosphere associated with the MCV moving out of the northeast
Gulf. As for the severe threat, the strongest storms right now
remain in a rather stable environment and will likely not become
surface based. Elsewhere, the threat for severe weather appears to
be diminishing.

Things are looking better in SE Alabama. The larger storms are beginning to dissipate, and new storms are not increasing in size as quickly as they were a couple of hours ago. Good thing in terms of rain too, since I'm now up to 7.20" in the past 60 hours. The pressure is up to 29.80" from 29.77" two hours ago as the high in Georgia is trying to slide a little west and set up a wedge. Thankfully, the cells are moving NE at 50 to 70 mph. They are very efficient rain producers, and I'd be in trouble if they started to stall or train. The ground is just about fully saturated now, so a break in the rain would be very helpful.

New Tornado heading @ OXFORD MS @ 60 mph
Large Violent Tornado on the move next up Selmer, Eastview, Statonville, Adamsville take cover now #tnwx
A low pressure system emerging from Iowa is forecast to intensify rapidly tonight into Thursday morning as it tracks across the upper Great Lakes into Northern Ontario. Strong and gusty southwest winds are expected to develop very early Thursday morning along and just behind a cold front crossing the central Great Lakes regions. Wind speeds of 60 km/h are expected with the odd gust to 90 km/h expected.


The winds should begin to ease Thursday afternoon.

Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage.

It's dark now and that makes the storms even more dangerous .. much harder to visually track ..

temperatures rising steadily in DC area. mid 60s now from low 60s at sunset.
1.5" of rain in an hour 2.1 total here in Riverdale MD. I was away.. that 1.5" might have
fallen in much less than an hour. It was fast enough to cause surface flooding around my house through the well in my back basement.. only the fourth time that's happened in 23 years. Worst surface floooding happened in 2003 when I got 0.75" in five minutes! The 1.5" in less than an hour of (warm process) rain is amazing for December.

Would like to dry out the basement but I expect dewpoints over 60F for the next 48 hours, also amazing for December! May be forced to turn on AC just to dry it out.

But compared with what's going on in MS.. I can't complain at all.
Tornado sirens are howling in Nashville.

Evening, everyone. Cool shot of the mammatus clouds. The first time I saw such clouds was back in 2004 when I was at the bus station in Colorado Springs. Little did I know that a tornado had almost touched down ...😃

Quoting 241. Astrometeor:

Tornado sirens are howling in Nashville.


The local news is saying heavy damage in Wayne County, TN.

Tornado warning was to my NW, and of course to my south. Raining now. Lots of lightning around.

Edit: Heavier rain and winds are happening now, in defiance of the radar which seems to be saying it should be lessening.

Wow, after the rain the other night we're holding at around 3" total so far, been a pretty rain free day along the coast today. I guess we'll see what happens tonight but pretty quiet here right now.
Still pretty quiet here. There are a few storms just to the south of me now that show some lightning but I've yet to see anything yet. Radar Dog is just trotting around looking for food he can steal, so that's a pretty good sign nothing severe is on the horizon. I've only picked up another 0.05" since 4:15 pm. We needed the break to let some of this water soak in. What storms there are still clipping along at 35-55 mph so that's helping to limit any additional rainfall. If the storms earlier today had been slow movers I probably would have gotten about five-six inches today alone. I imagine the tornado watch for central Alabama will be allowed to expire at 8:00 pm. Looks like NW Alabama and western TN are still under the gun though.

Storms are re-firing behind the initial supercells, might see some more severe thunderstorms before the night is through. Flood threat is increasing as we're having another batch of heavy rain.
So muggy here I buttoned up the storm doors and turned the A/C to 70F.

Ha, you're telling me. Still 66F here, the high was 68F with a dewpoint of around 60F. We were seeing cloud to cloud strikes, now seeing a lot more cloud to ground. And closer too even though the first round is over.
Quoting 240. georgevandenberghe:

temperatures rising steadily in DC area. mid 60s now from low 60s at sunset.
1.5" of rain in an hour 2.1 total here in Riverdale MD. I was away.. that 1.5" might have
fallen in much less than an hour. It was fast enough to cause surface flooding around my house through the well in my back basement.. only the fourth time that's happened in 23 years. Worst surface floooding happened in 2003 when I got 0.75" in five minutes! The 1.5" in less than an hour of (warm process) rain is amazing for December.

Would like to dry out the basement but I expect dewpoints over 60F for the next 48 hours, also amazing for December! May be forced to turn on AC just to dry it out.

But compared with what's going on in MS.. I can't complain at all.
The temperature is rising here as well. Up to 67 from 64 an hour and a half ago. The barometer continues to rise, but the wind has shifted back to the south. Still nothing apparently severe on the radar, but another band of showers is passing through. Most of the rain today has been torrential, with an actual 1.25" per hour around noon. I'm hoping the rain will end by about midnight local time so I can dry out some. I don't have a basement, but the crawl space on the east side of the house has about six inches of standing water. That happened from standing water in the yard backing up into it. Pretty impressive rainfall all in all.
Quoting 260. Astrometeor:



I am not the one to ask, nor is it a good time to ask.



Good answer, Astrometeor. And I wish our pro mets here in Houston felt the same way. They've got a "Bear watch" on this front that's going to come through SE Texas and (maybe) bring back winter to the region. And when something's got a "bear watch" you just know it's going to be BAD!
Saying at least 4 dead from the storms, including a child. Sad.

Sirens are going off again, brand new tornado warning for Nashville. Dad says we are not under the polygon, but just barely. I see Maury-Lewis-Lawrence counties have a PDS warning?

Edit: I see that warning was earlier, now it's just a normal tornado warning. I wish NWS OHX's website would display the current info for me. I'm only seeing the old warnings.

Nashville, TN (KOHX) - Base Reflectivity (0.5)

Nathan's Christmas horrorscope:

I thought you were on Christmas vacation not to come on until New Years? And ha, I wish.
Special weather statement in effect for:
•City of Toronto

What a difference a year makes, or two for that matter.

Two years ago, a crippling ice storm, dubbed the Nightmare Before Christmas, was affecting millions of people across portions of Southern Ontario. Last winter, the words 'polar vortex' were on many people's lips. However, this December and holiday season have been extraordinarily mild and snow-free.

A deepening low pressure system over the American Midwest this evening will track roughly towards the North Pole on Christmas Eve. As a result, balmy unseasonal breezes will allow temperatures to rise well into the mid or even high teens in many areas later tonight into early Thursday morning. Temperature records for today and Christmas Eve are expected to tumble by the sleighful. And not only will it be mild, but abundant sunshine should grace many areas on Thursday as well. Cooler conditions will work their way in during the day on the wings of quite strong southwesterly winds. Wind warnings are in place in some regions east of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron. Travel conditions should be very good for everyone, except for perhaps one special person and a herd of reindeer, who probably prefer a blanket of fresh snow.

A quiet, mild Christmas Day is in store for most areas with good travel conditions for one and all.

Happy holidays from the Ontario Storm Prediction Centre!

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports to #ONStorm.
I'm just checking in--I should have just said I won't post any lists because that takes a lot of time. Hope you're happy to be home and Mom is stuffing you with good food :)

Extremely warm in the Delmarva--Dover, DE is 70 and rising, which would be respectable in anywhere in Florida in the evening. Philadelphia has broken their daily record high by 3 degrees. Philadelphia has also had 0.63" of rain between 9 and 10 p.m., a tropical-style downpour.

Philadelphia has now reached 70 and is above all model projections. The monthly record high for Philadelphia is surprising low, at 73. It would be amazing if the monthly record were broken at night.

Today's record high in Philly was 66, and tomorrow's is still 64. But not for long.

The first one got to about Fairview, Tennessee before the rotation significantly began to decay. I believe that was the one that went through Holly Springs, MS. That gave a tornado warning to Nashville, but I don't think a tornado touched down.

The second one has confirmed damage in Wayne County and was still going last I checked through Rutherford County.

Verizon Fios is still showing Accuweather and has no updates on tonight's severe weather outbreak. I find this bordering on dangerous incompetence. Please bring back the Weather Channel.


Can anyone help me make sense of what the 00z run is saying? Do the yellows indicate an extremely dangerous squall line or just a rain amount. Does it spell disaster for Houston?
Here in Durham, NC more and more rain. Lots of stream flooding. My heart stays with MS/AL/TN. I'm on a hill thank goodness.
One little purple circle on Palomar Mountain received 5.37" rain this last storm. A lot of orange and reds represent 2"- 5" of rain coming after a series of light/moderate storms should let it soak down to aquifers quicker, which is what all of California really needs.

There have been 27 tornadoes reported. Just looking at the information over at the SPC storm report page, it appears some are multiple reports of the same tornado, There are five reports of a tornado in McDonough County IL that are likely to be just one tornado. None of these tornadoes have been confirmed yet, so we'll know the actual number tomorrow. The number of fatalities has been variously reported as six or seven. From the pictures I've seen, it looks like some of them occured in mobile homes.

The temperature here has risen from 64 at 8:00 pm to 70 now. There is a line of storms that's moving NE but drifting east as it progresses NE. These storms are now just to my west. There was a severe thunderstorm in Coffee County, just to my SW, that just had the warning expire, with some tree and building damage reported. It looks like more storms are forming and intensifying in this weak convergence zone. That area has had some persistent training of storms, and the NWS just issued a flash flood warning for those areas SW and W of me. My side yard is still flooded. If that rain gets over to me, things won't be good, especially if I get the three more inches predicted in the flash flood warning. I'm surprised to see this develop when things were calming down earlier, especially since there's no clear forcing mechanism that's causing it.

CONCERNING...TORNADO WATCH 566...567...

VALID 240927Z - 241100Z

THE SEVERE WEATHER THREAT FOR TORNADO WATCH 566...567...CONTINUES.

SUMMARY...THE RISK FOR SEVERE WEATHER MAY NOT BE COMPLETELY
NEGLIGIBLE WITH THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY OVERSPREADING THE REGION
THROUGH DAYBREAK. BUT PROBABILITIES APPEAR SUFFICIENTLY LOW TO
ALLOW THE REMAINING VALID PORTIONS OF WW 566 AND 567 TO EXPIRE AS
SCHEDULED.

DISCUSSION...BANDS OF CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT PERSIST ACROSS CENTRAL
ALABAMA INTO THE SOUTHERN APPALACHIANS...GENERALLY ALIGNED ALONG A
STRONG SOUTHWESTERLY LOW-LEVEL JET. ALTHOUGH IT APPEARS THAT FLOW
IS IN THE PROCESS OF SLOWLY WEAKENING...SPEEDS AT 850 MB REMAIN
AROUND 40-50+ KT...AND MAY REMAIN SO ACROSS NORTHERN GEORGIA THROUGH
DAYBREAK. THIS WILL CONTINUE TO CONTRIBUTE TO POTENTIALLY STRONG
LOW-LEVEL SHEAR FOR ANY CONVECTION BASED NEAR THE SURFACE.
HOWEVER...WHILE SOME STORMS MAY BE BASED NEAR THE SURFACE ACROSS
CENTRAL THROUGH NORTHEASTERN ALABAMA...A SHALLOW STABLE TO NEUTRAL
LAYER NEAR THE SURFACE APPEARS TO BE HOLDING ACROSS NORTHERN
GEORGIA. GIVEN THESE TRENDS...IN THE PRESENCE OF A LARGER-SCALE
ENVIRONMENT CHARACTERIZED BY SIGNIFICANT MID-LEVEL HEIGHT RISES AND
THE MAINTENANCE OF LOW-LEVEL SURFACE RIDGING...SEVERE WEATHER
POTENTIAL DOES NOT SEEM LIKELY TO APPRECIABLY INCREASE OVER WHAT IT
HAS BEEN THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS.

.DISCUSSION...

THE PATTERN WE`VE BEEN IN THIS MONTH REMINDS ME OF DECEMBER
1982 WHEN WE ALSO HAD A STRONG EL NINO THAT RESULTED IN TORNADOES
IN THE SOUTHEASTERN U.S. AND ONE HERE IN TENNESSEE. NASHVILLE HAD
ITS WARMEST CHRISTMAS ON RECORD BACK IN 1982. LOOKS LIKE THE
PATTERN WILL CONTINUE WITH VERY WARM TEMPS FOR THIS TIME OF THE
YEAR AS WE GO THROUGH CHRISTMAS AND INTO THE WEEKEND WITH LARGE
SCALE SOUTHERLY FLOW FROM TROPICS AND JET STREAM BEING MUCH
FARTHER NORTH THAN USUAL. RAINFALL TOTALS HERE IN THE MID STATE
OVER THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS COULD RANGE FROM 3 TO 4 INCHES.

CURRENTLY SURFACE FRONT ALONG THE TENNESSEE RIVER WILL MOVE EAST
TODAY AND PULL UP ALONG THE ALABAMA STATE LINE AND UP ALONG THE
PLATEAU DURING THE AFTERNOON. I HAVE KEPT CHANCE POPS RUNNING FAR
EASTERN MIDDLE TENNESSEE AND ALONG THE PLATEAU AND DOWN NEAR
ALABAMA BORDER DURING THE DAY. FRONT WILL RETURN NORTH TONIGHT AS
A WARM FRONT AND THIS WILL INCREASE POPS FOR MID STATE AND HAVE
INCLUDED THUNDER. ON FRIDAY MODELS HAVE INVERTED TROUGH ON FRONTAL
BOUNDARY WITH WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LIKELY. ON
SATURDAY A VERY WARM DAY WITH MID STATE WELL WITHIN WARM SECTOR
AND GOOD SOUTHERLY BREEZES WITH SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
AS SURFACE BOUNDARY WILL HAVE PUSHED A LITTLE FARTHER NORTHWARD
DUE TO STRONGER SURFACE RIDGING FROM ATLANTIC LESSING RAIN CHANCES
A BIT FOR SATURDAY. A VERY DEEP AND SHARP WESTERN U.S. UPPER
TROUGH WILL DIG DOWN INTO THE NORTHERN PART OF OLD MEXICO WITH
LOW CLOSING OFF AND BECOMING CUT OFF AT LEAST FOR SATURDAY NIGHT
OVER EL PASO. UPPER LOW WORKS OUT INTO NORTH TEXAS ON MONDAY AND
TAKES ON NEGATIVE TILT AS IT SWINGS UP THROUGH ARKANSAS AND LOWER
MISSISSIPPI VALLEY DURING THE DAY MONDAY. 120 KNOT SPEED MAX NOSES
INTO WESTERN AND MIDDLE TENNESSEE MONDAY AFTERNOON AND MONDAY
NIGHT. MUCAPES GO TO 500 J/KG WHILE SURFACE LI`S GO TO -2. THIS IS
STILL A WAYS OUT IN MODELS BUT SOMETHING TO WATCH.
I HAVE SHOWER
AND THUNDERSTORMS CHANCES INCREASING SUNDAY INTO MONDAY AS THIS
SYSTEM APPROACHES.

.CLIMATE...NOTHING OFFICIAL ON TORNADO COUNT FROM LAST EVENINGS
TWISTERS HERE IN MIDDLE TENNESSEE BUT IT LOOKS LIKE POSSIBLY 4
TOUCHED DOWN. 1 IN PERRY COUNTY...2 IN WAYNE COUNTY AND 1 IN
SMITH/DEKALB. THERE WERE 2 FATLITIES IN PERRY COUNTY. ALL IN ALL I
THINK THIS IS PROBABLY THE WORST OUTBREAK OF DECEMBER TORNADOES
IN MORE THAN A HALF A CENTURY IN TERMS OF NUMBER AND FATALITIES.

Everything ok sar?
Yeah, so far. Those intensifying storms weren't kidding. I had a tornado two miles west of me at 0234 CST. It literally blew up in one rotation of the radar. Luckily for me, the track stayed to the west until it crossed the river into Georgia and went below at least tornadic levels. Just had another one pop up at 0337 CST. This one is about 8 miles west of me, and the warning goes on until 0415. It has a very clear hook echo on right now as it continues to move northeast, and away from me, thank goodness. If these are indeed tornadoes, they happened (and are happening) over a very rural area. I haven't heard any reports of the tornadoes or damage on the scanner. Oops, cancel that, a deputy reported the tornado on the ground right over Spring Hill. It's one of those crossroads communities anchored by a church and probably has less than 50 people. No word back from the deputy on damage but hopefully it's off on the woods. Just came back on the radio now and reported trees down from what he could see.
,
Geez. I'd really like to go to bed but these storms are ramping up too quickly to depend on the weather radio waking me up in time. We've also had a lot more rain, and I'm up to 8.42" so far. Some stations west of me are reporting over five inches in just the last three hours. Half my yard is now a natural swimming pool. :-) That tornado now NE of Spring HIll is still on the ground with a good signature. It may turn into a runner.

Edit: The Spring HIll tornado just lost its signature on radar so that should be the end of it as far as being a tornado. I sure hope this is the last one, but it's still 72 here.
LOL. The SPC just issued a tornado watch for my area, only an hour and a half after the first tornado warning was issued. They are right on top of things this morning. :-)

Tornado Warning for Haralson, Paulding, and Polk County in GA until 5:30am EST.

Tornado Warning for Barbour County in AL until 4:15am CST.
Another tornado vortex signature just popped up south of Star Hill this time. That's about 20 miles west of me, on the western edge of Barbour County. No warning, and no reports from the field as of now. OK, enough is enough now....

EDIT: Birmingham just issued the warning on this one.

EDIT 2: This is kind of strange. Birmingham issued an update one minute later and said "SOURCE...RADAR CONFIRMED TORNADO." I don't know how you get a tornado confirmed by just radar. They added: "TO REPEAT...A TORNADO IS ON THE GROUND." The TVS is pretty clear on radar, but having one be confirmed and on the ground with just radar is a new one on me.

NEW: Tornado watch issued for parts of southwest/central GA and southeast AL until 10 am ET.

NEW: Tornado watch issued for parts of southwest/central GA and southeast AL until 10 am ET.
Well, that's it for me. If I don't get some sleep I'm going to fall right out of this chair The tornado warning near Spring Hill is still active and the TVS is still looking good. The latest update doesn't mention confirmed or on the ground, just radar indicated, so I don't know why that got changed. The volunteer fire departments are trying to get into that area now but they are blocked by flooded roads. One truck got past Highway 82, the main road west, and he's reporting multiple trees down into power lines, so something happened there. There are a lot more trees than people out there so hopefully there are no casualties. It's off to bed with the weather radio, hoping nothing more happens. Good night/morning, and Merry Christmas!

Is that 8.42" for just the day yesterday? If so, wow. Also, it looks like there are more storms training over your location right now. I hope the flooding is not too bad.
The HRRR model is showing lots of rain for Sar's area. If that 8.42" total was just from yesterday, flooding is going to be bad.

Politics? Maybe? But seeing as how this week's severe weather is due and/or exacerbated, at least in part, by climate change, I'm not at all sure how it could be "chased" off these pages.

Anyway, and in the beautiful spirit of multiculturalism, I wish you and everyone else here a Merry Christmas, a Fantastic Feast of the Immaculate Conception, a Happy Hanukkah, a Most Joyous Kwanzaa, a Terrific Tet, a Blissful Bodhi Day, a Magnificent Maunajiyaras, a Wonderful Festival of Lights, a Blessed Ramadan, a Good Winter Solstice, a Festive Festivus, and a Happy New Year!

There's not much good about severe wx except that it chases politics and agw off of these pages for while. Be safe out there people and keep an eye to the sky! Merry Christmas all!


Sorry I'll bite too. As extreme as this North American heat anomaly and moisture loading is, I think it might pale in comparison to what's coming sometime in the next 10 years. Case in point, this Nino. This Nino started on top of an already anomalously-high, AGW-driven ocean heat content. The actual increase from the base ocean heat, and the atmospheric response that reinforces this el nino (i.e. WWBs), absolutely paled in comparison to 1997. If we get anywhere near the ocean heat deviation and WWBs we saw in 97, then all bets off! We're gonna need a new superlative beyond Godzilla.

The reason I am going with the next 10 years is two fold. One we seem to be solidly in the positive phase of the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, and two, since 1970 we've seen a staggering increase in ocean heat and a significant increase in the frequency and intensity of El Ninos.

Disclaimer: The following graph compresses the time axis to exaggerate the slope/rate of change. I think it's fitting however because it really drives home the dramatic increase in ocean heat which is really calling the shots here. I think too many get distracted by the atmosphere cause that's where humans live. Remember that the atmosphere is only carrying about 2% of the climate's heat. This graph is from the IPCC's official 2013 report.

Quoting 326. sar2401:

There have been 27 tornadoes reported. Just looking at the information over at the SPC storm report page, it appears some are multiple reports of the same tornado, There are five reports of a tornado in McDonough County IL that are likely to be just one tornado. None of these tornadoes have been confirmed yet, so we'll know the actual number tomorrow. The number of fatalities has been variously reported as six or seven. From the pictures I've seen, it looks like some of them occured in mobile homes.

The temperature here has risen from 64 at 8:00 pm to 70 now. There is a line of storms that's moving NE but drifting east as it progresses NE. These storms are now just to my west. There was a severe thunderstorm in Coffee County, just to my SW, that just had the warning expire, with some tree and building damage reported. It looks like more storms are forming and intensifying in this weak convergence zone. That area has had some persistent training of storms, and the NWS just issued a flash flood warning for those areas SW and W of me. My side yard is still flooded. If that rain gets over to me, things won't be good, especially if I get the three more inches predicted in the flash flood warning. I'm surprised to see this develop when things were calming down earlier, especially since there's no clear forcing mechanism that's causing it.


I was looking at the line of storms to my West near the coast and they were actually moving NE with the line itself backing off to the West, strange that the line is not moving East.

Date rainfall records aren't a surprise. The PWATS we have here absolutely are and they will persist for another 36 hours.


I had 1.5" in an hour in Riverdale MD Wed eve. It may have been in much less than an hour but I wasn't home to watch.. xmas shopping. The flooding patterns are consistent with a short intense event like 2003 when I got 0.75" in five minutes.

This is a respecatable amount for summer let alone late December!

Normally in winter when the basement gets damp from a minor flood, it dries out fast because of the low dewpoints. However now I am looking at well above 60F dewpoints for another 36 hours before cold air trickles in. The house is colder than outside (and drier too so opening the windows won't help)

I may just have to use the AC to dry things out. Family will be happy for the cooling too.

First of all my condolences and best wishes for the victims of the tornadoes yesterday.

The 12z GFS has 6 hours of heavy freezing rain for S/W Ontario, throw in the forecasted 25 knot winds and we have a significant event. If this forecast holds I will be looking for a generator on boxing day for sure as the wife and I will have her grandchildren at our farm for a week starting the 28th.

Thank you Mr Henson and Dr Masters for the important information provided to us all year long.

Happy Holidays to both of you and your families, as well as all the wonderful personalities on this blog.

It's Christmas eve and I'm sweating just sitting in my living room.The kids are wearing short sleeves and shorts outside instead of hats and coats.

As it was explained somewhere by somebody, the Polar Vortex is strong and until it weakens and the El nino weakens, it will be tough for the cold arctic air to make it south this year. Enjoy it while you can. I will be the first to predict a colder winter for 2016-17.

Looked at the GFS Skew T around the DC area. Things may start out as sleet before wet bulb cooling above the boundary layer freezes the lowest 300mb allowing for snow before warm air works it way down top to bottom to transition to rain.
Sounds like the snow event we had in early March.

And that snow event put down a couple good inches.

Possibly although I think the transition to rain will be faster unless the models are underestimating the CAD.

5 day GFS snowfall forecast

although I've seen in multiple forecast discussions that the GFS is an extreme outlier.


We got about an inch here in a fast moving squall around 11am, in the Fabulous 89406.

I was unloading and stacking 11 bales of grassy hay the whole time. Kids thought it was great, and it's mostly melted now.
