My latest interpretation of the weekly ECMWF long range forecast model.....
Tornadoes, wind and hail took aim at Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Arkansas, Missouri and Illinois. Weather safety tips for the next time severe weather hits.

This year had been a markedly (and thankfully) slow year for tornadoes. That luck ran out last night, when multiple twisters struck Oklahoma and Arkansas.
Volatile spring weather has erupted, and it's leading to large contrasts in weather over distance and time in much of the country.
The cold front will move through the East today and bring colder weather Friday and Saturday.
This map shows a low pressure center along a cold front that will cross the Eastern states today. From southern Pennsylvania southward, a few thunderstorms can develop this afternoon and evening, but everyone in the Middle and North Atlantic state should get some rain.
The first moderate risk of 2015 has been issued today, with hail existing as the main threat. Storms will impact several states in the South Central region of the US.
