The southern Plains will continue to see an increase in severe weather the next seven days. What concerns me in the longer range is this increasing threat for tornadoes. On the map below, I outlined an area of increasing tornado threats. The key top the tornadoes will be the system that will hit California and the timing of that system into the Plains this weekend. The operational models all suggest one system that will come out Friday and stir up the storms in the Plains followed by the mother lode upper-level low this weekend. When that happens, the shear will increase and storms should become more widespread with the threat of tornadoes lasting into Monday and Tuesday. It would appear that a wild time is coming up and hopefully it will not be dangerous for folks in the Plains.
Severe storms and snow mark the Memorial Day weekend.
Severe storms will hit the Northeast and western Texas today. Tornadoes could occur in Texas.
Severe weather for the Ohio Valley and Northeast today.
One more day of tornadoes, some which can be large and devastating.
Tornadoes could be worse today given the jet coming out into the Plains.
We are going into a five- to seven-day period of severe weather which will include tornadoes. We could see over 100 reports of tornadoes.
