    Major Severe Weather Outbreak Today... Storms Friday

    4/03/2014, 7:29:10 AM


    Not much to add to the commentary the past couple of days. Storms have already started this morning, and they will only get nastier as the day progresses. I expect we will see at least a couple of long-lived large tornadoes across parts of Arkansas and Missouri. Wind damage and hail will also occur with the thunderstorms in the areas shown on the map.

    We also have to watch Kentucky to West Virginia for wind damage as the MCS moves through that area this afternoon. The low-level jet is predicted to increase to 70 knots across that area which will help to sustained a severe threat well into the afternoon.

    Tomorrow's threat of severe weather in the form of wind damage and hail will occur across Ohio into Kentucky and West Virginia to western Pennsylvania. That area will be under the right rear quad of the jet and in an area of a strong low-level jet.
