Today is the two-year anniversary of the January 2012 Tornado Outbreak that dropped an EF-3 and two EF-2 tornadoes in Alabama, killing two. This is not to be confused with the January 2010 tornado outbreak, or the April 2011 tornado outbreak.
I'm not sure why I wasn't able to blog about this in 2012, but here is a list of Social Media updates that I did:
RT @henry_margusity: Special Blog Posted on the Severe Weather Outbreak Today. Expecting over 100 reports of severe weather later...— Jesse Ferrell (@Accu_Jesse) January 22, 2012

Comparison of yesterday's tornado tracks vs. those of last April in Alabama, Mississippi - some got hit twice http://t.co/8FnIWRbI— Jesse Ferrell (@Accu_Jesse) January 24, 2012
Here are some images that I had saved on my computer. More information is available from the NWS in Birmingham.
After the extreme, widespread reports of sleet from the March 3 storm, I wondered if it might be a new record... but sleet stats are hard to come by.
The mid-Atlantic had never seen a March morning as cold as this one... the Great Lakes ice and U.S. snow cover set records, and more.
Elliot Abrams said: "Rather than centering near the I-80 to I-70 corridor, the snow was centered on the I-70 to I-64 corridors." So what he's saying is...
It's been a heck of a season, but winter is not over yet. Historic cold and snow is coming once again.
I was lucky enough again this year to have AccuWeather send me to Social Media Week in New York City and even luckier to get these awesome photos.
I'd like to present our latest promo video which explains what AccuWeather, the company, does.
