ALERT FOR SEVERE STORMS CAPABLE OF PRODUCING TORNADOES
AT PRESENT SPC HAS SHIFTED TO MODERATE RISK FOR SEVERE STORMS.
THIS LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM INDEED IS A BIG ONE AS THE AIR PRESSURE CENTERED OVER NORTH-EAST OKLAHOMA IS OVER 996mb.
Intense low pressure jets more than 50 knot jet are present. Actually a lot of moisture is being provided by this system from the atlantic which is actually helping the thunderstorm to split into supercells.
SPC has issued Mesoscale discussion and watches for tornadoes and it has to be a historical day.
AS the day progresses, this system will move in the missourie valley and a shifting warmfront will help in some more severe outbreak. the chance of Hails also is there and might be as large as 1 inch golf ball..The EHI but natural also good and positioned over coast. So there has to be a coastal flood warning
This system will deactivate only when the cold front arrives that is expected by evening
Keep tracking us and for another 12 hours turn to spc.noaa.gov as it is time for shut down for METD due to a night here.
