The weather pattern over the next five days will repeat itself across the Mississippi Valley with more severe weather. What it really comes down to is the strengthening Atlantic ridge pushing against a retreating winter trough which was a product of the weakening La Nina. There is evidence that the La Nina is weakening despite the SOI values remaining high. So while it is weakening, it still having a huge influence on the weather across our country, and it really explains why it's been so extreme. Until we see some major changes in the weather (which I don't think will happen for a least another month or two), it's going to remain extreme. Below is the link to a news story we did today outlining the potential for 300 tornadoes over the next two weeks.
