    An Insane Outbreak of Severe Weather Next Week

    April 21, 2011; 12:13 PM ET


    The weather has just gone insane with the pattern that will evolve next week across the eastern half of the country. While I enjoy the meteorology of the events that will unfold, knowing that there is potential for loss of life in the pattern coming is not comforting to me. When I said that I expect up to 300 tornadoes in the next two weeks, I was not kidding. Given the pattern next week, I can see 100-200 tornadoes over a four-day period starting Monday, as I have outlined on the map below.

    There is no doubt that the ingredients for the severe weather outbreak will be in place next week. We will have a strong jet stream, plenty of heat and humidity, and at least two potent storms. People living in the area that I am showing on the map should be aware of the extreme weather coming next week.
