April 6-19, 2024 | Severe Weather

Recommended Posts

Here comes the next system with another round of severe weather potential. Noticed this system on the models the last few days but was surprised to see a 15% area for Day 5 (Saturday) 


I have big concerns on moisture return and instability, and don't expect this to be a major event whatsoever but hopefully we can at least get a nice storm out of it.

Both GFS and Euro agree on a dryline setting up Saturday afternoon 



I would think wind and hail would be the main threat here but you can't ever count out a tornado or two. Also need to watch Sunday further east, and wouldn't be surprised to see a 15% area added soon.

Tomorrow would probably be a classic Plains tornado outbreak if we had better moisture. Still could be a few tors although it'll most likely be more of a wind threat. Not expecting much here as most of it should be to the north and east but maybe we can end up with a nice storm.

Whoa Day 2 Moderate


For 15# tornado and 45# wind

Also a 10# tornado area for Tuesday. Honestly I'm seeing potential storm mode issues so I'm a little skeptical on the 10# and 15# areas but the 45# wind area certainly looks justified based on the model runs I've seen. Probably will be some embedded supercells as well. Certainly shaping up to be a dangerous event.

Wow, I was so focused on the eclipse I didn't even realize there was a D2 Moderate. Models look messy, but embedded supercells and QLCS events can go pretty crazy sometimes. the early morning after Easter Sunday 2020 comes to mind. Also can't rule out pre-frontal rogue supercells, definitely going to be a dangerous day tomorrow!

I do not like the discrete look of the storms Wednesday-Thursday.. especially paired with the deepening low’s approach. Yikes.

Been watching that. Ohio seems to be a hot spot this season

The actual severe weather setup appears substantial. Air mass

   modification will ensue northward from the western Gulf on D3, with

   multiple days to improve the low-level moisture profile amid well

   above-normal surface temperatures and a pronounced elevated mixed

   layer. With the likely flow field amplification through the

   troposphere, all ingredients appear present for a significant severe

   weather day on D6/Monday. The areal uncertainty of the synoptic

   features is the primary limiting factor. For now, have added a

   confined 30 percent highlight to indicate the higher-end potential

   and the most probable corridor, while broadening the previous 15

   percent area
