My Aunt has relatives in Kingston, OK, they're fine, but their friends got struck by the tornado

 

They're fine too, but they've lost their homes.

Sorry to hear this. Hadn't been down there in many years. Knew there were warnings up at various times but wasn't sure where the tornadoes were.

Kind of dates an era a bit but I was at the last 2 ever held of the Hawaiian Derby. I feel old when I think about thst stuff. Want to say that was 1998 and 1999.

Glad everyone is ok.

This region of Eastern Colorado and Western Kansas has been the big winners in the Central Plains by far this winter/spring.  Just amazing how every storm has hit them.  Very jealous.

 

Those 4 people out there have really been showing off this year

Overall it looks like less than expected in the Lincoln area. Only 0.61” fell at the airport. Per usual, we did get more in the southeast part of time, around 1” or so. Baby steps I guess, could’ve been nothing like the every precipitation chance in November through February.

We only picked up 0.23" of rain this morning.  Models all show the same scenario for this evening and overnight, but they differ slightly on placement.  A north-south band of good rain is expected to develop and pivot across my area, but models are split between over us and just west.  If it's over me I could get 1-2".  If it misses west I may struggle to get a half inch.

Thankfully it didn't look like it had a super long path, but you can see on Google Maps that all the main east-west roads in the Lower Ninth Ward/Arabi areas of New Orleans are dark red. Looks like it may have traveled a mile or so.

The models totally nailed tonight's activity.  A narrow heavy band formed very near me.  The heaviest rain (1.50+") fell just barely west (by only a couple miles), but I did sneak under the east edge of the band and got 1.11".  The east side of the city got much less.  My total for the entire event is 1.34".  Our wet season has begun with two straight 1" soakers.  Keep them coming.

Can't see exactly,  but there is a fair amount of ice on trees.  After our brief snow in the evening its been freezing rain since. Can hear branches/trees breaking in the woods. Switched over to some pretty heavy snow in the last 15min.

I've been on the sidelines these past few days and slowly getting back into tracking this storm.  The footage coming from the deep south is remarkable and I'm sending prayers and positive vibes to all that have been effected.  This has turned out to be one massive and powerful storm.  It's mind boggling that it literally is effecting everyone from the U.S./Canada border all the way down towards the Gulf coast.  Quite and expansive system and a very slow mover...I've always enjoyed tracking these type of storms and I got a hunch that this is how our Spring wx pattern will continue into APR and MAY.

I agree models  nailed this system.  Ive had 1.82"  since 11 pm monday.  Tues evening  it just kept training  south to north along hwy 63.. my pond that we dredged  last July is almost full.  Once again my part of Iowa can kiss the drought  monitor  goodbye. And  yesterday  was a record  daily rainfall for OTM.

They nicely plotted out the carnage from 2 evenings ago.  That’s a lot of twisters.

Trees still snapping, we have kept power since 2pm with only a few flickers. If it gets windy its lights out for a lot of people. The red and white pines are shedsing heavy branches. On a 15min walk saw and heard 7 fall. Came back to one in our driveway! Most are in the 4-6" diameter range Some 8+". It's beautiful though.....did I hear something about a big dog next week???

More spokes of light rain, and even a bit of snow, overnight and this morning boosted my event total to 1.62".  It's definitely done now.

Finshed this system  with 2.07"!!! Several hours of light wet snow today. By far juiciest system  since late Oct.   So in past 8 days ive recorded 3.05"  together  with the 7 inches of snow 1st week of March a very wet month compared  to avg. Nice way to prepare  for growing season! We dredged our small  pond last July i didn't  expect  it would fill this much in March!
