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.
Severe storms will be scattered about the Northeast today. Hawaii will be impacted by a tropical storm.
We are seeing the SOI values crashing again as the El Nino continues to pulse. Weather should get active again next week.
The El Nino has crashed again which means extreme weather should return soon. Check out the video.
The winds will be damaging across the northern Plains today. Expect gusts over 60 mph!
The week will start stormy for the Northern Plains with severe weather followed by high winds.
Next week will start of with severe weather and will end with a tropical threat aong the East coasty.
