Severe Storms Get Going Today. Video Talks About the Snow

April 17, 2013; 10:54 AM ET


The severe weather area was adjusted some because a cold front has slipped into Kansas, cutting the threat to elevated hail storms. The best chance of tornadoes will stretch across southern Oklahoma and northern Texas when the greatest inflow of high dew point are and EHI values are coming together. I do think we will see a few tornadoes today as supercells develop. Most areas today through tomorrow will see damaging wind gusts and large hail.

Speaking of tornadoes, so far this year we are at the second lowest number of tornadoes since 2005. The least was in 2010 when 94 occurred through April 17. I think by May 1, we could have the lowest year since in 2010 the number of tornadoes went up quickly the end of April. The pattern through the end of April just does not look like it's conducive to tornadoes.
