Tornadoes Again Today, Some Nasty. More Severe Weather Tuesday

May 20, 2013; 10:13 AM ET


1. I think today will be the worst day for tornadoes because the jet will rotate out of the Rockies and hit the southern Plains by this evening. The jet will be much stronger today than over the weekend running at 90+ knots. That strong jet will lead to intense upward motion and the development of supercell thunderstorms/more tornadoes.

2. I do think we will see over 25 tornadoes today, some that will be large and destructive.

3. The storms will calm down some Tuesday but still will produce a swath of wind damage, large hail and an isolated tornado.
