April 10th - 15th Extremely dynamic storm system


Recommended Posts

The dry line pushed through my area earlier than storms where able to develop. Made it up to 90 today. What happened after the dry line blew through was something I have never seen. Winds switched to the west/northwest and blowing dust blew through. I went out 2 miles to our east and visibility was a half mile or so. There was also a major accident 5 miles to the north on highway 81. I stayed on the country roads but it was clear that highway was not a place you wanted to be on. Welcome to the dust bowl 2022.

Unfortunately the interesting clouds didn't really amount to much here besides some rain as the bulk of it moved off to the NW.

Most of the action seemed to dance around me today. I had about 10 mins of some low rumbling thunder from a distance, some rain, and a little tiny hail. Not much to write home about. Actually had more excitement from the storms on 3/29. Guess we'll get em next time!

One thing about the Midwest Thunderstorms.  They are impressive.  !   I wonder if this is the same storm that caused it to snow at sea level in Portland.  That is an intense cold pool running into the heat here .

Scattered  thunderstorms.  More chances today but I won’t hold my breath   Hoping our Spring sees more rain before the tap is shut off

Moderate includes western Kentucky. This is at least the 2nd (I'm thinking 3rd) in the Paducah forecasting area since Mayfield.

Models have trended toward more widespread precip here this afternoon and evening as the next upper wave lifts northeastward.  They are also showing a band of snow on the backside of the precip shield.

  • Iceresistance changed the title to April 10th - 15th(?) Storm systems with Severe Storms. Moderate Risk for D1

As expected, the line significantly weakened by the time it reached eastern Iowa.  We only had a brief downpour and a bit of light rain that added up to 0.08".  I never understood why the enhanced severe outlook extended all the way to Cedar Rapids.

Looks like it's about to get going in the favored area.

MD 476 graphic

   DISCUSSION...A stable airmass is currently in place across the lower
   Ohio Valley and mid-Mississippi Valley in the wake of a morning MCV.
   However, low-level moisture is expected to improve significantly
   over the next several hours. The leading edge of richer Gulf
   moisture can now be seen on visible satellite where the cu field is
   expanding north across Mississippi and western Alabama.
   Extrapolating northward movement of this better moisture and
   northeastward movement of ongoing thunderstorm activities, it
   appears better low-level moisture will arrive prior to the
   convective line east of the Mississippi River and possibly slightly
   west. Expect this better moisture to reach the Missouri bootheel
   around 19-20Z, southern Illinois 20-21Z and southern Indiana around
   22Z. MLCAPE is expected to increase to the 1000 to 2000 J/kg range
   ahead of these storms which should be sufficiently unstable to not
   only support a significant severe weather threat with the squall
   line, but also potentially allow for some more discrete convection
   to develop ahead of the line. In addition, surface winds are
   expected to back across the warm sector as the upper-level trough
   advances northeastward. Therefore, significant elongation of the
   low-level hodographs is anticipated. Therefore, all severe weather
   hazards are expected this afternoon/evening including the potential
   for 75+ mph wind gusts and a couple of strong (EF2+) tornadoes. A
   tornado watch will likely be issued in the next 1 to 2 hours.

Salado, Texas (rolling hills of central Tx) got its butt kicked in this last line of storms.

It really seems like that Mayfield is Kentucky's Moore, Oklahoma now.

Will be interesting to see how far east that squall line survives, given the impending loss of daytime heating.

A couple tornado reports coming in, night is young I guess.

There is a 2.75" hail report in Hardin County Kentucky.

Moderate risk with 15% hatched area for tornadoes and this is it so far, ZERO TORNADO REPORTS.

Big severe forecasts for the Memphis region rarely ever materialize. It is definitely outside of the new “Dixie Alley” region, which covers most of MS and all of AL.
