Tornadoes May Return This Weekend

May 14, 2013; 9:40 AM ET


The rest of the week, the severe weather potential will be low. We will see some storms across southern Ohio to southern Pennsylvania Wednesday afternoon and evening. Storms in that area may produce strong wind gusts and hail.

The trough moving into the Plains this weekend will take on a negative tilt. This will be one of the first times this spring we have seen troughs take on that type of tilt. The troughs that do tilt negatively are notorious severe weather makers, so given the temperatures, dew points and position of the jet, we could be in store for supercell storms with tornadoes. This is probably the best setup yet this spring for tornado activity.

Keep in mind, we remain at the lowest number of tornadoes in two decades and may break the all time lowest number of tornadoes for the season by late May.
