Another Day of Fall Heavy Storms

September 26, 2012; 9:54 AM

Commentary

Yesterday, a tornado occurred in the right rear quad of the departing jet streak. Today, that jet streak has moved up into the Northeast, and the right rear quad of the jet will stir up heavy storms from Kentucky to Maryland this afternoon. There is a push of higher dew point air into the front across this areas, so there will be at least fuel for the storms to develop with.

The second area will be under the left exit region of the tropical jet streak that is over the northern Mexico into Texas. The exit region will produce storms across parts of Oklahoma into southern Kansas and the Texas Panhandle.

In both areas, the main impacts will be damaging wind gusts and hail, although a couple of tornadoes are possible.
